Provides Shock and Drop Protection from up to 6.6 Feet/2 Meters SALT LAKE CITY, July 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ZAGG®, a global leader in accessories that empower mobile lifestyles, today introduced the Rugged Messenger wireless keyboard for the new 10.5-inch Apple© iPad Pro™. Thoughtfully designed at every turn, the Rugged Messenger also serves as a durable, detachable case and ensures that power users are well equipped to take their new 10.5-inch iPad Pro everywhere. The Rugged Messenger is engineered to safeguard your iPad Pro in the harshest conditions and features highly resilient layers of protection to keep the device free from impact and corner damage. Designed for shock and drop protection from up to 6.6 feet/2 meters, the Rugged Messenger is ready for anything that life throws at your iPad Pro. “Staying productive while on-the-go is no easy task, and in an era where working remotely is the new norm, solutions that meet the demands of daily life while promoting productivity are more important than ever,” said Charlie Quong, vice president, product development for ZAGG. “That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the Rugged Messenger for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. Our passion lies in providing solutions that not only protect, but also enhance the devices our consumers rely on most.” The Rugged Messenger offers a multi-device pairing feature, which allows you to conveniently connect the keyboard via Bluetooth® to two devices at once. This provides the freedom to toggle back and forth between an email in the boardroom and a text to a friend, all without taking your hands off the keys. The Rugged Messenger also features laptop-style, backlit keys, and a detachable case with a built-in kickstand that enables multiple viewing angles, while an integrated holder keeps your Apple Pencil© within reach when inspiration strikes. Armed with a rechargeable battery that lasts up to two years between charges*, and a sleep/wake function to preserve battery life when not in use, the Rugged Messenger will be ready to use when you need it most. Couple its on-the-go versatility and seamless transition from keyboard-to case-mode with an industrial-strength construction and the Rugged Messenger is easily tougher than your last deadline.
