NEWARK, Calif. — June 12, 2014 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) introduced the Logitech® Type-S, a thin and light protective keyboard case for the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5-inch. Featuring a built-in Bluetooth®-enabled keyboard with an optimized layout, well-spaced keys and versatile viewing positions, this keyboard case gives you added functionality and protection for your Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5-inch.
“The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S is impressively thin and light, and we designed the Logitech Type-S with that in mind,” said Mike Culver, vice president and general manager of mobility at Logitech. “The keyboard case’s design complements the thin aesthetics of the new tablet, and features Android shortcuts and well-spaced keys, so typing is comfortable. It makes emailing and browsing effortless, bringing productivity on-the-go to a new level.”
Precision engineered from state-of-the-art, water-repellant materials the Logitech Type-S is durable enough to help keep your tablet safe, without compromising the thinness of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5-inch. Its Essential Protection System (E.P.S.) helps protect both sides of your tablet from accidental bumps, scratches and spills. Plus, the Logitech SecureLock system’s corner clips are designed to keep your tablet firmly secured in its protective case, yet easy to insert and remove.
The Logitech Type-S features a dual-view stand for multiple activities, so you can get more done – position your tablet upright to type e-mails and chat with your friends, or lay it flat to read your e-book and browse in comfort. And with the auto-wake and auto-sleep feature, your tablet is ready anytime you need it.
