QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard for iPad Air

My first cellphone was a Samsung Alias, this dinky little thing with a dual-hinge and a full QWERTY keyboard. I typed up a storm with that thing. I eventually and reluctantly made the switch to a touchscreen keyboard and it’s suited me fine, but it can never quite replace the feel of actual keys. I’ve typed on a tablet, and again, I can manage just fine, but there’s a certain rythym that I just can’t get into when typing on a virtual keyboard. Fortunately companies like Belkin understand this and develop products like the QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard for iPad Air.

“Ultimate Pro” is a pretty heavy name, but it’s a step up from the QODE Ultimate Keyboard, with its backlit keyboard, adjustable viewing angles, removable case, and more responsive keys. Belkin has taken all of the feedback they’ve received from users of the original ultimate keyboard and used that as a guide when designing this successor. It serves the dual purpose of being both a case and a keyboard, but this time around users can remove the back case for a lighter product. Belkin has completely redesigned the layout of the keyboard and it’s the first iPad keyboard case on the market to feature the same number of keys as a traditional laptop.

The QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard for iPad Air is available now through Belkin.com as well as select global retailers for $149.99. Check out the full press release below.

Belkin Unveils New QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard for iPad Air

New QODE Keyboard Provides Improved Keyboard Layout, Detachable Case, Backlit Keys and Simultaneous Pairing with Two Devices

 Playa Vista, CA – October 14, 2014Belkin International, the market leader for tablet accessories, today launched its most advanced tablet keyboard to date, the QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard for iPad Air. The completely redesigned QODE Ultimate Pro combines durable tablet protection, unparalleled versatility and an upgraded typing experience in one convenient, lightweight package.

“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 turns the iPad Air into a lightweight productivity workhorse, giving users a viable way to get real work done without having to carry around a clunky laptop.”

Designed for users who want both a protective case and a keyboard, but not always at the same time, the QODE Ultimate Pro features 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 when the keyboard isn’t in use. Thanks to its detachable case, the QODE Ultimate Pro also features both portrait or landscape modes for more viewing options than traditional clamshell keyboard cases.

Belkin completely redesigned the keyboard layout of the QODE Ultimate Pro, making it the first iPad keyboard case on the market with the same number of keys as a laptop keyboard for increased functionality. Belkin also increased the width of the keycap shape and improved key pitch for a faster, more accurate and more comfortable typing experience. A first for the QODE keyboard line, the Ultimate Pro features a backlit keyboard with three brightness levels for easier typing in darkness or low light.

The QODE Ultimate Pro’s Bluetooth® Smart Keyboard seamlessly pairs up to two devices at once and also features a smart-sensing technology that automatically turns the keyboard on when the iPad Air is docked and off when closed, even when used as a standalone keyboard. The auto on/off feature helps prevent battery drainage and contributes to the Ultimate Pro’s impressive battery life of up to one year on a single charge.
