The ZAGG Slim Book wireless Bluetooth keyboard – ZAGG's slimmest keyboard yet – is an ideal solution for mobile typing needs. Its unique hinge secures a tablet at virtually any viewing angle and allows for multiple convenient modes. The Slim Book is powered by one of the industry's most powerful batteries that keeps it going for up to two years between charges.
The ZAGG Slim Book keyboard converts into four multi-function modes:
- Case mode: allows users to quickly separate the tablet from the keyboard for a convenient carrying case
- Book mode: keeps the keyboard and case together for a hand-held reading mode, and protects the keyboard when not in use
- Keyboard mode: offers full protection for the keyboard and tablet when closed, and provides backlit keys and a large typing area
- Video mode: holds the tablet securely at virtually any viewing angle
The ZAGG 10 Key is a Bluetooth numerical keypad that works with the tablet to further enhance business applications. The ZAGG 10 Key is sold as a separate accessory, and works alone or with one of ZAGG's tablet keyboards.
ZAGG and Intuit have teamed up to offer a promotional coupon included with each ZAGG Slim Book for a 30-day free trial of QuickBooks Online, a cloud-based version of their leading accounting software for small businesses.
"We are very excited to offer our great new mobile business tools along with a leading consumer and business software brand like Intuit's QuickBooks Online," said Randall Hales, CEO and president of ZAGG. "The ZAGG Slim Book is our best mobile keyboard yet. QuickBooks has the number one market share position in small business accounting software, and when combined with ZAGG's mobile productivity tools, creates a truly enhanced productivity experience with outstanding protection."
