Logitech was kind enough to send me a Logitech Ultrathin Keyboad Cover for the iPad mini for review. I thoroughly enjoyed using Logitech’s full size keyboard for the bigger iPad, so naturally I was excited to see how Logitech would shrink down my favorite Bluetooth keyboard and still make it enjoyable to use.
