Logitech makes the Samsung Galaxy Tab fit for work with Ultrathin keyboard folio


While some people will tell you that tablets are “consumption” devices that aren’t fit for real work, I’d say that’s absolute rubbish. Add a physical keyboard and the right apps, and your tablet is perfectly capable of replacing your notebook computer for a variety of everyday tasks.

I often use my iPad Air for work — and in many ways it makes me more productive. And now Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 owners can do the same thanks to the new Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio, a protective case with a built-in physical keyboard.

I’ve used a number of Logitech tablet keyboards — including the Ultrathin Keyboard for iPad Air — and they’re the best money can buy. Not only are they reliable and built to last, but they are incredibly thin and light, which is super important if you’re carrying them around all day attached to your tablet.

The Ultrathin range is also well designed. The keys are an excellent size and they are well-spaced, so you can type just as quickly and as accurately as you would on a regular, full-size keyboard. You also get shortcut keys that provide easy access to a variety functions, such as copy and paste and media playback controls.

When I want to take a break from my desk, I often pick up my iPad and my Ultrathin Keyboard and head out into the garden. There’s little I can’t do on it when it comes to blogging, and because I can only use one app at a time (that’s not the case for Galaxy Tab users), there are fewer distractions and I’m more productive.


The Ultrathin Keyboard Folio for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 boasts a “SecureLock” system that holds your tablet securely in place, and water-repellant materials that ensure it stays safe when you get caught in the rain. Logitech also claims its rechargeable battery will last up to three months on a single charge.

If you’re on the hunt for a good physical keyboard for your Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, then this is the one to beat. It’s priced at $99.99 if you buy from Logitech’s online store, but if it’s anything like the iPad versions, it’s worth every penny.
