Logitech has announced a couple of new accessories for your iPad that addresses both work and play department of your life with your iPad. the first is the Logitech Fold-up Keyboard for iPad 2 that, unlike the conventional folio-style keyboards, features a full-sized keyboard for ease of typing. though it is not purportedly dubbed as a case but the keyboard attaches to the back of the iPad 2 much like one. when not in use, the folded keyboard turns off automatically and hide neatly underneath your iPad 2 – acting as a form of protection for your tablet. once unfolded, the keyboard wakes up instantly and is ready for you to use. the best part is, the Fold-up keyboard works seamlessly with your Apple Smart Cover too.

next in line is the Logitech Joystick for iPad. now, if you think you might have seen this somewhere before, you are totally right. this Logitech item looks like a splitting image of the Ten One Design’s Fling which we have featured here earlier this year. the basic functionality is the same: it allows for a more tactile feel gaming experience on your iPad. i can’t help but to think they are the same item but in anyway, apart from the suction cups and the clear plastic design, the Logitech’s Joystick also boast a coiled spring design that provides the joystick with auto-centering capability. then again, that’s probably the only clear difference but as far as a layman is concerned, they look pretty much the same. it even comes with a similar drawstring carrying pouch just like the Fling. i wonder will there be any legal implication on this?

anyway, i am not huge fan of gaming on iPad but the Fold-up keyboard does have a more practical appeal to me. expect this duo to hit the stores soon but both item are available for pre-order from Logitech website now. the Logitech Fold-up Keyboard for iPad 2 is priced at $129.99, while the Logitech Joystick for iPad cost $19.90 a pop.
