The Belkin iPad Mini Keyboard case is a “you see what you get” scenario. There are no hidden pockets, or over the top functionality. We can’t speak to the keyboard’s comfort, but Belkin’s says that the keys are “well-spaced”, though by no means expect a full-sized experience. Connectivity to the iPad Mini comes by way of Bluetooth, and the battery receives its charge using the included miniUSB cord. According to Belkin you can expect to get 155 hours of typing from a single charge – sorry, no word on standby time, but we’d assume months as this is the norm for most keyboards of this ilk. The Bluetooth Keyboard is completely removable from the case, so if need be you can use the Belkin iPad Mini Keyboard Case on its own, which will also serve as a stand to hold your iPad Mini in landscape mode, ideal for watching movies on a plane. Other features include a camera hole cutout, and dedicated media keys.
The Belkin iPad Mini Keyboard Case can be pre-ordered at Amazon now for $80, with shipping commencing in the next few weeks. Those seeking a brick and mortar experience can head to their local Walmart or Best Buy.
