Black Friday is this week, meaning that the holidays are once again almost upon us. And for those still trying to figure out what to get that special someone, the new iPad mini seems to be a popular choice.

But what do you do if that person already has the tablet? Fortunately, accessories for the device are finally starting to surface. In fact, the folks over at iPad mini mod just unveiled a new keyboard case…

MacRumors points to the new iPad mini Keyboard Case from iPad mini mod. It’s very thin, and made from aluminum with a high-grade finish, matching the design, look and feel of Apple’s new tablet.

The case’s built-in physical keyboard connects to the iPad via Bluetooth, and allows for fast, responsive typing. And don’t worry, even with the case on you’ll still have access to all iPad controls and ports.

The case runs on a 160 mAh rechargeable lithium polymer battery, and iPad mini mod says it will last several weeks on a single charge. It also has built-in magnets for a Smart Cover-like on/off function.

But perhaps the most impressive thing about the Keyboard Case is its price tag. At $40, it’s half the price of a similar mini case from Belkin . If you’re interested, you can find it on iPad mini mod’s website.

    It looks exactly the same as the logitech one for the ipad 2/3/4 gen. Although this one is for the mini, logitech could do an apple and hunt ipad mini mod down…

  • Is that suppose to be 1600mAh?

  • With only gravity holding the iPad in the keyboard when open, I see lots of lots of potential for accidents when working from the lap. Could get expensive as well as awkward away from tables and perfect environments. Place for a stylus would also be nice. Otherwise, it looks like elegant simplicity that’s an Apple hallmark.

    One important thing it doesn’t show….will the Mini fit face up on top of the keyboard so you don’t have to use or store the Mini separated from the keyboard? It shows every feature but this….so I assume if you just want to use the touch screen you remove it from the keyboard?
