Logitech's FabricSkin keyboard folio for iPad will shrug off spills for $149 (video)

When Logitech announced keyboard folios for the iPad and iPad Mini less than a month ago, it thought it had all bases covered: keyboard, stand, cover. One important group of people weren’t considered in the design brief, however, known as “spillers” — those with an uncanny ability to bring gadgets and beverages together. It’s no wonder, then, that Logitech has been quick to come up with the FabricSkin keyboard folio to cater for this demographic. In addition to the “liquid-repellent FabricSkin surface” that coats the folio, there are a couple of new color schemes to choose from, and the Bluetooth keyboard is now fully integrated, much like the Surface Touch Cover, so fluid can’t work its way in-between keys. You’ll be paying a premium for that peace of mind, though, as the FabricSkin folio for the iPad 2 and up (no iPad Mini version), set to launch in May, is now available to pre-order from Logitech for $149 (or £129) — $50 more than the standard cover. Although, if there’s a good chance you’d hydrate a normal folio eventually, the FabricSkin model is almost like getting a replacement at half price. We’ll drink to that.
