Mobile Keys 25 and Mobile Keys 49 are a pair of new, lightweight, ultraportable keyboards designed to control iOS music apps and do double duty as USB MIDI controllers for Mac and Windows computers. Manufacturer, Line 6 tells us that both models have full-size keys and solid keyboard action. They say that the keys are velocity sensitive, allowing them to accurately interpret the nuances and subtleties of a keyboardist's playing. Both Mobile Keys models are compatible with any iOS app that supports the CoreMIDI standard for input, including GarageBand and numerous drum machines, synthesizers and virtual instruments.
Line 6 co-founder and digital audio innovator Marcus Ryle, told Sonic State "With Mobile Keys 25 and 49, not only do you have two extremely portable options for playing and recording on the go with your iPhone and iPad music apps, but you can move seamlessly between your iOS music apps and your Mac or PC, as well."
The keyboards require no additional hardware to function--they plug right into an iOS device's dock connector. They're bus powered, so they need no external power supply or batteries. The two keyboards are equipped with pitch bend and modulation wheels for additional sonic control, and they also have a pair of 1/4-inch TRS jacks for plugging in sustain and expression pedals. Both keyboards also have USB jacks and are USB class-compliant, allowing seamless connection with Mac and Windows desktop and laptop computers.

Pricing and Availability:
Suggested retail price for Mobile Keys 25 is £99.99, and Mobile Keys 49 is £129.99, and both are shipping early 2012. More information:
