"Schools are increasingly purchasing iPads for use in the classroom"

NEWARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) introduced the Logitech® Wired Keyboard for iPad®, the first iPad keyboard made specially for the classroom environment. Designed for hassle-free plug-and-play connectivity, the Logitech Wired Keyboard for iPad has an integrated Lightning Connector or 30-pin Connector – depending on which model iPad you use.

“Schools are increasingly purchasing iPads for use in the classroom,” said Mike Culver, vice president and general manager of mobility at Logitech. “While tablets are enabling new ways of teaching and testing, there’s a challenge when a teacher needs to simultaneously pair multiple iPads with multiple wireless Bluetooth keyboards. We developed the Logitech Wired Keyboard for iPad to specifically solve this problem, so students can now simply plug it in and start typing.”

With its durable, spill-resistant design and a key lifespan of more than five million strokes, the Logitech Wired Keyboard for iPad brings Logitech’s expertise and experience in keyboards to the classroom. Its low-profile, full-size keys provide the familiar fluid feedback you’re used to when typing, while saving screen space to make reading and note taking easier. Familiar shortcut keys help you easily access iPad functions, such as copy and paste, Siri and App switching, and an integrated Home button ensures you can get back to the Home screen instantly and easily.

The Logitech Wired Keyboard for iPad is planned to be on display at the 2013 International Society for Technology in Education conference in San Antonio, Texas from June 23-26 in Logitech’s booth, number 5295.

The Logitech Wired Keyboard for iPad with the Lightning Connector is expected to be available in the U.S. in August 2013, for a suggested retail price of $59.99. The Logitech Wired Keyboard for iPad with the 30-pin Connector is expected to be available in the U.S. in October 2013, for a suggested retail price of $59.99.
