Thin is in in the tablet world. Shaving a few millimetres off the girth of your device seems to be all the rage, and now it’s happening with tablet accessories too. And the thinnest of them all, at least all the keyboards, is a new release from Archos Design.
And before you ask, yes, that’s the same Archos that makes a lot of its money building entry level Android tablets. Or more precisely, it’s a branch of the same company which is focused on spreading the Archos and design ethic into other territories.
The keyboard fits in with the design of the iPad, if that floats your boat
The Bluetooth powered keyboard looks pretty slick, all polished aluminium and clever little kick stands. It’s reasonably cheap too, priced at around $79. You can fold your iPad closed when its attached and use it as a case, and it attaches using the magnets built into your iPad. That means iPad 1 owners won’t be able to use it unfortunately.
If that sounds like the sort of thing you’d like to click into your expensive tablet, you can find out more about it by clicking here.
