Brydge today officially unveiled its latest keyboard, debuting the BrydgeMini designed for Apple’s iPad mini 4. Brydge’s first BrydgeMini keyboard came out earlier this year for older iPad mini models, but at the time, a version for Apple’s latest iPad mini wasn’t available.

Like all Brydge keyboards, the BrydgeMini is constructed from aluminum and attaches to the iPad mini using a set of tabs. It’s not a full case, so while it’s heavy at 0.66 pounds, it doesn’t add an excessive amount of bulk. The BrydgeMini is 0.29 inches thick and it comes in Silver, Gold, and Space Gray to match all of Apple’s iPad colors.

It also includes the same features that are found in all Brydge keyboards, including backlit keys, a rechargeable battery, and 180 degree viewing angles. As it’s designed for the iPad mini, the BrydgeMini does not have a full-sized keyboard, but it uses the same keys as other Brydge keyboards.

The BrydgeMini retails for $99 and is available for pre-order from the Brydge website starting today. The $99 price point is a special pre-order price, and prices will go up after the pre-order period.

Brydge has also shared new pricing details on the BrydgePro keyboard for the iPad Pro, which it announced in December. Designed for Apple’s largest iPad, the BrydgePro weighs in at a hefty 1.6 pounds and offers the same features as the rest of the Brydge lineup – a full-sized keyboard, Bluetooth 4 connectivity, a multi-angle hinge, and backlit keys.

Macrumors doesn't mention that this keyboard also comes with little stereo speakers.

Edit: Well it seems that only the current iPad Air keyboard has speakers so they might be removing features.
