ZAGG Introduces ZAGGkeys FLEX Universal Keyboard Accessory for Smartphones and Tablets

There seems to be a gazillion Bluetooth keyboards available for the iPad and other tablets, but most of them are designed specifically for one device and are often built into a case that can only accommodate that device.  The ZAGGkeys FLEX keyboard from ZAGG looks like an interesting alternative because it’s device agnostic. It can be used with Apple and Android devices, as well as smartphones and tablets. The protective cover that wraps around the keyboard when it’s not in use, doubles as a stand for your device.  The ZAGGkeys FLEX has a built-in rechargeable battery that provides months of use between charges. It also features Island-style keys (whatever that is) which have been engineered to provide maximum typing room. The ZAGGkeys FLEX is available now for $79.99. What is your favorite mobile keyboard? I’m still a big fan of the original style ThinkOutside Stowaway from days gone by…

    Still have my ThinkOutside Stowaway. I have to root my Epic to get it to work with it (we just getting Gingerbread yesterday) or buy a new phone with HID support. THE best BT keyboard design EVER, not even a close second exists.

    Jason, is it the 4 row or 5 row StowAway?

    Island keys poke out individually from a perforated surface, as opposed to a keyboard where all the keys are contiguous there’s no metal or plastic web between the keys. Frankly I don’t think island key or not matters as much as the size of the keys and the tactile response.

    I’m a fan of the Incase Origami stand you guys reviewed a while ago. http://the-gadgeteer.com/2011/08/13/incase-origami-workstation-review/ I use it with my iPad, iPhone, or whatever device I want to.

    @Mikey: It is the 4-row (Ultra-Slim Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard)

    Unfortunately, it does not work with my Epic4G–even rooted (but it does work with my iPodTouch).

    @Jason Yeah I have the same one. I think I had it working my my Flyer but the function keys were messed up so I got the Logitech one instead.
