Accessory maker ZAGG today announced a pair of Bluetooth-powered backlit keyboard products for Apple’s iPad mini. The ZAGGkeys Cover and Folio are both ultra-thin, pack in Bluetooth wireless connectivity and sport a patented hinge system that allows for up to 135-degree viewing angles and can reverse the device for a one-piece reading and playing mode.

As for the form factor, the Cover is just 6.3mm thick versus 6.9mm for the Folio. Both offer backlit keys in seven color options and three lighting levels and a battery that keeps them going for up to three months each of normal use…

Additionally, the Cover sports a magnetic closure which protects the screen during transport.

Here’s the Folio.

Each will retail for $99.99 and both are expected to land by summer.
