Gaming accessory maker Razer has set its sights on the mobile accessory market, and thinks there’s a future for its products among the mobile gaming crowd. The new Mechanical Keyboard Case, for example, is aimed at iPad Pro users to give them a notebook-like experience while using the gigantic tablet.
Just like its name implies, the new case uses Razer’s ultra-low-profile Mechanical switches, which makes typing on the keyboard a breeze, requiring an actuation force of 70 grams, delivering the same feel as a traditional mechanical keyboard. The keys are backlit as well, and the package comes with an integrated kickstand to make things easier when you’re typing out long reports.
The accessory does not connect via the lightning port on the iPad Pro, and instead uses a Bluetooth connection to work. Razer estimates that the keyboard has a battery life of 10 hours with the backlight on, and 600 hours with it off.
If you want it, it won’t be cheap – Razer’s priced the product at 7.9K, or around $169 in the US.
