Belkin has launched the QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard for iPad Air. It costs US$149.99 and is available now at http://tinyurl.com/ptbbqb9 .
“We’ve taken everything that was great about our original QODE Ultimate Keyboard and added a number of premium features that our customers have requested, including a backlit keyboard, more responsive keys, adjustable viewing angles and a removable case,” says Ana Hory, director of Belkin’s QODE keyboard business. “The QODE Ultimate Pro turns the iPad Air into a lightweight productivity workhorse, giving users a viable way to get real work done without having to carry around a clunky laptop.”
Designed for users who want both a protective case and a keyboard, but not always at the same time, the QODE Ultimate Pro features a detachable back case that lets you remove it from the keyboard. The case portion is compatible with the Apple Smart Cover for full dual-sided protection when the keyboard isn’t in use. Thanks to its detachable case, the QODE Ultimate Pro also accommodates both portrait or landscape modes.
Belkin completely redesigned the keyboard layout of the QODE Ultimate Pro, making it the first iPad keyboard case on the market with the same number of keys as a laptop keyboard for increased functionality, says Hory. Belkin also increased the width of the keycap shape and improved key pitch for a faster, more accurate and more comfortable typing experience, she adds. A first for the QODE keyboard line, the Ultimate Pro features a backlit keyboard with three brightness levels for easier typing in darkness or low light.
The QODE Ultimate Pro’s Bluetooth Smart Keyboard seamlessly pairs up to two devices at once and also features a smart-sensing technology that automatically turns the keyboard on when the iPad Air is docked and off when closed, even when used as a stand-alone keyboard. The auto on/off feature helps prevent battery drainage.
