Logitech's Universal Folio turns any tablet into a laptop

Getting a keyboard case to go with your tablet is a lot harder than it really needs to be sometimes. Logitech's latest creation is here to put a stop to that. The Universal Folio is exactly as it sounds, available to use with any tablet on any platform.

That's good for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it means Windows folks aren't left out in the cold or resigned to buying either a very expensive or a cheap low-quality keyboard. Cases like this for the iPad are pretty common, so it's awesome to see Logitech hasn't forgotten the Windows crowd.

The other good thing about it being universal is that you can take it with you should you ever decide to buy an iPad or an Android tablet. Just like Microsoft's mobile keyboards, there should be no need to keep swapping out your favorite accessories all the time just to get a new device.

The Universal Folio is designed to hold 9 and 10-inch tablets and the battery life is rated at an insane two years, based on two hours of use every day. That's a lot of typing. The corners adjust to hold different sized tablets safe and sound, and there's even a pen loop attached for your digital scribbler.

Best of all it's very affordable. This combined case, tablet stand and keyboard will only set you back $59.99, which represents excellent value. And it's available now.

  • But it doesn't have a track pad.  How could it turn a tablet to a laptop? And I really don't see the point of using such a thick keyboard case, making the whole package even thicker than a laptop.  It defeats the purpose of using a tablet. I still prefer Surface Pro like type covers - they were designed for the PCs.
  • And cost twice as much. So there you go. Not everyone is willing to spend all that money.
  • True but if your not bothered about a trackpad there are cheaper options in fact there are cheaper options with a trackpad.
  • Thats why we have companies like Chuwi, with cheaper tablets, type covers with trackpad, pens...
  • I was about to post the same, no track pad
  • Android and iOS don't need a trackpad. Therefore a trackpad would be added cost to very little benefit to Logitech.
  • That's what a good Bluetooth mouse is for
  • Universal cases are always too bulky because they are too generalized. I prefer cases specifically designed for the device.
  • Pretty cool... The only thing I don't like is the pen loop being on the outside.. What🤔... It should've been secured tightly on the inside. I don't want to risk losing my $60 Surface pen.
  • Even worse for people with an Apple Pencil.
  • Whys that? The pencil has no hook?
  • Don't think so. And it costs like twice as much!
  • Redic....... And, worst of all, it's called a pencil. 🙄
  • And just like a real pencil, you have to regularly plug it into the "pencil sharpener" aka charging port. Pens are much better.
  • Looks good for a universal folio, I've got a Bluetooth keyboard I use occasionally, prefer folio cases made specifically for the device.
  • Poor write-up, talk about the keyboard instead of concentrating on whether windows is left out or not. Just trying to make an issue out of it.
    Meh! this site is gradually becoming boring.
  • Interesting - wonder if it will fit my 2520...
