  • An even-lower priced iPad could help Apple teach Google a lesson

To ensure the highest levels of protection and durability, the Rugged Combo 2 protects iPad from bumps, scratches and drops of up to four feet.

The Logitech Crayon and Rugged Combo 2 will be available for purchase to schools and school districts in the USA beginning this summer from apple.com/education/purchasing/.

With the announcement of a new 9.7-inch iPad with Apple Pencil support which primarily targets the education market with its $429 CAD price, Logitech has unveiled a new $49 USD Digital Crayon for the new iPad, that promises to put art and handwriting within the reach of more schools (via Engadget). The keyboard is spill-resistant too, so it won't be ruined if a Capri Sun is spilled on it.

The Rugged Combo 2 has a detachable keyboard layout with pry-resistant keys that don't require replacement. It offers both tilt support and palm rejection and works with the same apps as the Apple device.

The so-called "digital pencil" sports an 8-hour battery life and instantly connects to an iPad without the need to pair. At half the price, the Crayon is a great alternative to the Apple Pencil, if you're okay with the chunkier design.

In Logitech's words, it's "an affordable solution" for students so that they can take handwritten notes, draw and illustrate, and create diagrams. It also features a kickstand with four use modes and angles, as well as a built-in pencil holder specifically made for the Logitech Crayon or Apple Pencil. The smart tip of the digital pencil is pry-resistant and only removable with a special tool, while the rubber cap is tethered, so it can not be easily misplaced.

The Logitech Rugged Combo 2 and Crayon are priced at $99.99 and $49.99, respectively, and will be available for purchase to schools and school districts in the U.S. starting this summer. Brands of Logitech include Ultimate Ears, Jaybird, Logitech G and ASTRO Gaming.
