Logitech Expands Tablet Accessories Lineup with First Protective Folios for Samsung Tablets
Work on Your Terms with the New, Thin and Light Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio and Logitech Folio Protective Case for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3
NEWARK, Calif. — Sept. 3, 2013 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced the expansion of its market-leading tablet accessories lineup with its first products for Samsung Galaxy Tab® 3. The new collection includes the Logitech® Ultrathin Keyboard Folio for Samsung Galaxy Tab® 3 10.1 and three cases: Logitech® Folio Protective Case for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, 8.0 and 7.0. Made from water-repellant materials, these new cases provide front and back protection, yet both are ultra-thin and light. Additionally, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio features a built-in keyboard for fast, fluid and comfortable typing, no matter where you are.
“With these new cases, we’ve taken Logitech’s deep expertise in creating protective, aesthetically pleasing tablet accessories and for the first time brought it to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3,” said Mike Culver, vice president and general manager of mobility at Logitech. “Our goal with any tablet accessory is to perfect even the smallest details to enhance the consumers’ experience. From water-repellant materials to comfortable keyboard layouts, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio and Logitech Folio do just that.”
The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 features a Bluetooth® keyboard with keys placed in the same location as on full-size keyboards, helping to ensure a fast, fluid and comfortable typing experience. Its SecureLock system keeps the corners of your Galaxy Tab firmly fastened to the frame with lightweight, low-profile clips, while powerful magnets keep the case securely closed when you’re not using your tablet. This system works in tandem with the dual-view stand, which holds your Galaxy Tab in two ideal positions: upright with the keyboard exposed for a perfect typing angle, and laying flat with the keyboard hidden for easy browsing.
If you’re looking for everyday tablet protection without a keyboard, the Logitech Folio for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, 8.0 or 7.0 is your answer. Covering the front and back of your Galaxy Tab with water repellant materials, these cases are designed to help protect your tablet from accidental bumps, scratches and spills without adding bulk to your tablet. They also use the SecureLock system to keep your Galaxy Tab in place, whether the adjustable stand is placed flat, fully upright or at any angle in between.
