Razer rolled out a Mechanical Keyboard Case as a gift to iPad pro users. While 12.9-inch ultra-low-profile mechanical switch is a perfect fit for the Apple iPad Pro, the company intends to target a larger group of mobile tablet users.
The Mechanical Keyboard Case comes in sleek all-matte black with a detachable polycarbonate case wrapping. The keyboard is connected to the device via Bluetooth, contrary to the Smart Connect that Apple uses for its own keyboard line. According to The Verge, the battery will run for 10 hours with the backlit keys at its maximum, but can be extended to up to 600 hours without the backlight.
To make for an efficient mobile setup, the device also includes a metal kickstand with a hinge to easily adjust the viewing angle. The metal kickstand promises to support the massive weight of the iPad Pro, which is a 1.57-pound beast.
The ultra-low-profile switch needs 70 grams actuation force to recognize a single press, while the switches on the Razer Mechanical Keyboard Case are also silent. According to Phone Arena, that rate should boost accuracy significantly.
As for its dimensions, it encompasses the entire Apple iPad Pro. In a way, it also doubles as a thick protective cover case for the iPad.
