The leaders in design-focused peripherals, Brydge announced that they are expanding their product range, starting with one of the highest requested product features for tablets.
At CES 2020, Brydge has announced its anticipated Brydge Pro+ for the iPad Pro that comes complete with an integrated trackpad. Breaking the internet with that announcement makes the iPad Pro one step closer to being a full replacement for your MacBook, making this an ideal product for anyone with an iPad. With viewing angles from 0-180 degrees and adjustable backlit keys, this is the closest your iPad be to a full laptop replacement. Complete with Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity and a three-month battery life per charge, even if you forget to charge the keyboard, chances are you still will have more than enough to get you through the weekend.
What’s more, there’s a standalone iPadOS trackpad that will come out in the 2nd quarter of 2020 that offers smooth and responsive swiping, making continuity between iPadOS enabled apps easier. The Brydge Pro+ will be available for preorder on January 7th, with the first 500 orders being delivered by February 1st, while other pre-orders by March 1st.
Available in Space Gray, the 11-inch model will cost $199.99 while the 12.9-inch will cost $229.99. If you aren’t a user of the Surface, there’s a Brydge for the Surface Go, Surface Pro scheduled for release this year as well.
