Slim Book Pro ($149.99 SRP) is an ultrathin portable tablet keyboard case that has taken functional design to the next level. Its soft touch, detachable case with built-in kickstand enables multiple viewing angles, while an integrated holder keeps your Apple Pencil© within reach for when inspiration strikes. Slim Book Pro features an ergonomic, backlit keyboard with island-style keys for spacious, accurate and comfortable typing that feels just like a traditional keyboard. The Slim Book Pro can also pair with up to three Bluetooth® devices and allows users to instantly toggle between them to boost productivity throughout the day.
Rugged Book Pro ($149.99 SRP) is engineered to operate in harsher conditions by adding formidable layers of protection and reinforced corners to guard your iPad Pro against damage. The rugged TPE and polycarbonate construction protects against scratches and impacts up to six feet. A steel frame under the detachable keyboard provides a solid typing surface for island-style, backlit keys, and built-in magnets activate the keyboard’s sleep/wake function to preserve battery life between charges. Rugged Book Pro also features a built-in kickstand, a conveniently located holder for the Apple Pencil and, through its multi-pairing function, delivers on ZAGG’s vision to turn the iPad Pro into a multi-device workstation.
Designed to be as versatile as your day, both keyboards feature four functional modes, including:
- Case mode – protects your iPad Pro from impact, scratches and dings while you are on the go
- Attached keyboard mode – a magnetic hinge secures the keyboard to the case for a true laptop-like typing experience
- Detached keyboard mode – allows the keyboard to be used wirelessly when detached from the case
- Video mode – the built-in case kickstand secures your iPad Pro at an optimal viewing angle so you can easily share videos with everyone.
“We believe productivity can be accomplished at work, at play or at rest,” said Brian Stech, president of ZAGG. “We designed the Slim Book Pro and Rugged Book Pro for those who challenge the traditional office environment and champion productivity for the modern age.”
