Logitech Crayon for iPad Becomes Available for Everyone on September 12th

By Radu Iorga

Apple Pencil isn’t the only way to do input on iPads, as there’s also something called “Crayon” from Logitech. It’ll finally go live for the masses on September 12th, the date when Apple has an event scheduled.

This product was only available for schools and students till now. Logitech Crayon will hit Apple’s retail stores from September 12th and it’s going to cost $70, compared to the $50 that schools paid for it. The accessory uses the same palm and tilt aware technology as the Apple Pencil, but has less pressure sensitivity. It’s designed with hand written notes in minds and also sketches, but not complex artwork.

It offers a 7 hour battery life, which may sound OK, unless you’re really working away from home or the office a lout. The design is clearly more premium than the Apple Pencil one, with an aluminum and rubber design. It’s rugged, so it can survive 4 foot drops. It also has a female Lightning port for charging, instead of the annoying connector from the Apple Pencil.

 

Back to the Crayon, it works with the sixth gen iPad, uses Apple Pencil style technology, has tilt and auto connect, so no need for Bluetooth pairing. It has auto shutoff after 30 minutes and a removable cap. With 2 minutes of charge you’ll get about 30 minutes of battery life. It comes with 1 year of warranty and weighs 0.7 oz.

Logitech Debuts Rugged Tablet For Corporate Use, With LTE On Board

By Radu Iorga

Logitech launched a tablet this week, which is something they don’t do very often. It’s a model that debuted via carrier DoCoMo and comes with LTE, as well as a rugged body. It’s the LT-WMT 10 series, with the Zeroshock branding.

The device is clearly rugged, as shown by its very well protected corners, against shock and impacts. The Zeroshock slate packs a 10.1 inch touchscreen, as well as a wireless LTE module that works on the NTT DoCoMo network. You can choose between Celeron and Core i5 CPUs and the OS is Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2016, or you can go with Windows 7 Professional for Embedded Systems.

The tablet is protected against vibration and shock, being tested by the US Department of Defense, so it’s military certified. It’s dust proof and drip proof, also being IP65 compliant. It’s got a micro SIM card slot and LTE support, plus it weighs up to 1.25 kilograms. It’s expected to hit the market in May, with the price being unknown.

We expect it to be big, perhaps even past $1000, since it’s a business device after all. I expect the usual extras to be available: barcode readers, QR code scanners, hot swap batteries and more.

Logitech Announces Rugged Combo 2 Case, Logitech Crayon Stylus for iPad

By Radu Iorga

Logitech took advantage of the new iPad unveiling to showcase a few products of its own, obviously focused on the iPad. They debuted a new stylus, dubbed Crayon and a Rugged Combo 2 Case, also designed for the Apple slate.

These accessories are designed with the iPad 2018 in mind and they’re meant for students who use the new tablet. The Logitech Crayon is similar to the Apple Pencil, but it’s cheaper, at $49, which is about half the price of the Apple Pencil, that sells to schools for $89. Logitech promises a similar experience though, thanks to the sub pixel precision, low latency and also there’s tilt support.

Compatibility with apps is expanded and the the accessory has improved grip, preventing accidental drops and rolling. Battery life is rated at 8 hours and we also have a pry resilient tip, plus a rubbed cap, that seems to hide the charging port. The Crayon connect via a special frequency and doesn’t rely on Bluetooth.

 

Then we’ve got the Rugged Combo 2 Case, a $99.99 accessory, which was made using input from educators. It’s supposed to survive the daily class activities, the “wear and tear” typical for schools. It’s got a protective screen cover, which also works as a keyboard and up top there’s a special slot for the Logitech Crayon. The good news is that the keyboard is detachable and the key caps aren’t easy to pry by mistake.

It’s also a silent keyboard and the case provides spill and drop resilience (up to 4 feet).

Last year I told You All About The Logitech K480 That I Bought…Yep, You Could Get One for Less Than I Paid

So for anyone who has read any of my posts about the K480, or why I choose it over the K380 then you are probably aware that I bought one last year from the very same place that has them dirt cheap again.

Now almost a year later, Newegg still has these keyboards in there refurbished items section. Don’t panic, mine was a “refurbished” model, meaning it was repackaged and brand new.

So if you really want a great keyboard for the incredibly low price of $16.99 then click this link!

If you are looking at a Bluetooth keyboard for a 10 inch or smaller tablet, or perhaps just to use with your PC or smartphone, then you might just be an idiot if you don’t go visit the site I linked above, (okay, this one works also).

The Best Bluetooth Keyboard

By Kimber Streams

bluetooth keyboard logitech k380

After testing 21 keyboards over the past year, we found that the Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard is the best for most people. It’s the first to meet all the requirements of a great multi-use Bluetooth keyboard—comfortable, compact, and versatile—for less than $50. The K380 is almost as great as our longstanding previous pick (which we still love—it’s our new upgrade pick), but it costs less than half as much.

I am happy with my K480, but if Logitech would like to send me one of these to test I certainly would be happy to try it out!
