Genius has released the LuxePad i9010, a new Bluetooth keyboard designed for the iPad mini. It offers up to 180 hours usage on its own rechargeable, internal lithium battery.

Eleven specific function keys provide quick access to a wide range of iPad features. The LuxePad i9010 keyboard can be carried along with the iPad mini when traveling, thanks to its clip-n-go design. The magnetic clip attaches the keyboard cover instantly to the iPad mini.

The LuxePad i9010 wakes automatically when the cover is opened, and sleeps when the cover is closed, to extend battery usage. There’s also a low battery indicator light to warn that the battery needs to be recharged soon. A micro USB cable is included for recharging the battery. The stand holds the iPad mini at the optimum viewing angle, in either vertical (portrait) or horizontal (landscape) orientation.

The LuxePad i9010 is now available in North America for the suggested retail price of US$39.99. For more info go to .
