Hatch & Co. SKINNY: The iPad 2 Keyboard Case Slims Down

Let’s be honest, transforming your iPad into a netbook with a somewhat bulky Bluetooth keyboard seems a bit like a paradox; the whole reason why the iPad 2 is so easy to carry around is that it’s extremely light and you can still use it for a variety of purposes. This new keyboard case from Hatch & Co. is called SKINNY and it’s not bulky at all.

The SKINNY case is made from faux leather, and integrates the world’s slimmest and lightest iPad 2 keyboard. At least, that’s what the company claims. The keyboard is 0.07 inches thick. It only weighs 10.4 ounces, so your iPad will stay light and thin. It even integrates a trigger to automatically sleep and wake your iPad, just like Apple’s Smart Cover.

Instead of chiclet-style keys, you’ll find ultra-thin touch keys with a slight tactile edge, so I don’t know how good these are for touch-typing, and if they’re really going to be an improvement over the on-screen keyboard. Though it will save you screen real-estate while typing, and it is spill-proof. The keyboard’s battery is good enough for 68 hours of continuous use and it can be charged up via USB in two hours.

You can get the SKINNY case over at Amazon for $89.99 (USD), and is available in either black with grey keys or white with brown keys (reminiscent of the old Atari 400).
