The World Is Your Workspace
The whole point of your portable device is to be able to get up and go, right? The Rugged Messenger's wireless, Bluetooth® design means you’re free to work anywhere without being tied down.
The Rugged Messenger’s multi-layered polycarbonate structure is designed to withstand drops up to 6 feet! That means, from the table top to the parking lot, you can have peace of mind whether you’re catching up on your favorite show or running to catch a ride.
Your Rugged Messenger comes with a two-year warranty that covers defective materials and workmanship. ZAGG will replace or exchange your Rugged Messenger at no charge.

Two Modes Make You Mobile
The Rugged Messenger gives you total versatility when it comes to being productive on the go. Because it has two modes—keyboard and case—you don’t need to invest in extra accessories. The stainless steel frame under the keyboard provides a solid surface for typing as well as extra protection for your device.
Case Mode protects your iPad from scratches and dings while you're on the go.
Keyboard Mode makes typing fast and comfortable by offering a large typing area and backlit, laptop-style keys.
Multi-Device for a “Multi-Life”
You connect to your world in multiple ways. Multi-device pairing capability lets you connect to two devices simultaneously, such as your phone and your tablet, and switch back and forth between them effortlessly.
Looking at it From a Different Angle
Magnets in the built-in stand secure your device at multiple viewing angles to accommodate your activities.
Type With the Ease of Laptop-Style Keys
Nothing puts your productivity on pause like an awkward, cramped typing experience. The Messenger’s improved, responsive keys let you type with the speed and ease of a laptop.
Light Up the Night
Life doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. The keys on the Rugged Messenger are backlit—in seven colors—which allows you to keep going, even in low-light conditions.
The rechargeable battery keeps you typing for up to two years between charges*, and the sleep/wake function helps preserve battery life when your keyboard is not in use.
