Belkin has launched two new QODE keyboards, the QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard and the QODE Slim Style Keyboard. These keyboards are designed for iPad Air.
Belkin claims QODE Ultimate Pro keyboard to be the most advanced iPad keyboard to date, while the QODE Slim Style features an upgraded keyboard layout in a slim, folio-style design.
“We’ve taken everything that was great about our original QODE Ultimate Keyboard and added a number of premium features that our customers have requested, including a backlit keyboard, more responsive keys, adjustable viewing angles and a removable case,” said Ana Hory, director of Belkin’s QODE keyboard business.
The QODE Ultimate Pro sports a detachable back case that makes it simple to remove from the keyboard. The case portion is compatible with the Apple Smart Cover for full dual-sided protection.
It also features both portrait or landscape modes for more viewing options than traditional clamshell keyboard cases.
The company has also increased the width of the keycap shape and improved key pitch for a faster, more accurate and more comfortable typing experience.
