Bluetooth keyboard

Apple allows you to add new software keyboards to your device with iOS 8, but Brando allows you to add a physical keyboard to your iPhone 6.  The iPhone 6 Ultra-thin Slide-out Bluetooth Backlight Keyboard case snaps onto the back of your iPhone 6; it leaves all connectors and controls uncovered.  In addition to the [...]

I enjoy my iPad mini, but I worry about dropping it or otherwise damaging the unit when I travel.  Also, it serves most of my needs, but there are still occasions where I need to set up a laptop to write a review or extended emails.  Now, with the rugged folio from Zagg, I have converted [...]

I've reviewed a lot of keyboard cases for iPads and iPad minis in my day, but I'm always game to try another.  I find that some are pretty uncomfortable to type on and some do very well for an undersized keyboard.  Then there's the Belkin Qode Thin Type Keyboard Case for iPad Air, which is [...]

We review a lot of external battery packs here on The Gadgeteer. They come in all manner of shapes, sizes and colors, but they all suffer from one problem - they are just one more thing you have to carry around with you. One solution to this problem is to use gadgets that have a [...]

Small tablets like the Google Nexus 7 are light weight companions suited perfectly for all sorts of mobile tasks which make them great alternatives to a regular laptop. Onscreen touch keyboards get the job done, but sometimes you just want a physical keyboard to make it easier and faster to edit documents and write emails. For those times, you need [...]

When Apple released the iPad mini with Retina display, some people were disappointed because it was slightly thicker than the original.  That meant it was probable that many accessories for the original wouldn't work with the newest model.  That's not the case with the Minisuit Bluetooth QWERTY Keyboard Stand Case for iPad mini 1 & [...]

Or at least pair with three devices simultaneously.  At first blush, it seems the Multi-Sync Keyboard from Kanex is designed to work only with Apple products, but reading closer reveals that this Bluetooth keyboard also works with Windows and Android devices, too.  You can even use it with your Apple TV.  This isn't unexpected from [...]

Because he was tired of the inefficient on-screen keyboard on his iPhone, Ryan Seacrest (yep, the guy on TV) joined with Laurence Hallier to develop the Typo iPhone Keyboard Case.  The Bluetooth keyboard sits at the bottom of your iPhone and, according to early users, can increase your typing speed and reduce the number of mistakes.

Because virtual keyboards on tablets always present a problem for some users, there are a multitude of keyboard cases on the market.  The keyboards for the full-sized tablets are undersized and can be difficult for touch-typists to type on because of their non-standard layout.  I was surprised when I heard that manufacturers were introducing keyboard [...]

Several months ago, a friend of mine gave me a challenge.  It was to write a page a day, any format I wanted, as long as I was writing roughly 700 words daily.  While by no means did I ever consistently meet that goal, it did kickstart the writing bug in me again. I primarily [...]

I have never been considered a workaholic, at least not when it comes to my day job. But when it comes to The Gadgeteer, I can't unplug and to be honest, I don't want to. I enjoy working on reviews and answering emails, even while I'm on vacation. This year we went to Sanibel Island Florida [...]

As someone who can touch type much faster that I can write with a pen, I prefer to use a physical keyboard with my tablet vs. an onscreen keyboard any day. Especially if I'm working on a review or writing a really long email. Most keyboards designed for tablets can't be used on your lap, [...]

Bluetooth keyboards tend to come in two varieties: a case for a tablet you are using with a keyboard built in, or a universal Bluetooth keyboard that is not device-specific. The Neptor ET-KB300BF-WH Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard for Tablets & Smartphones by Eagle Tech, USA falls into the second category.   It's a portable keyboard that can [...]

I suppose it's because of the iPad mini's small size, but the market hasn't seemed to flood with a gazillion keyboard cases for it.  Some of the cases that I've seen have been more like Apple's Smart Cover in design, which I much prefer to those typical folio cases.  ZAGG has a Smart Cover-style Bluetooth [...]

The FAVI Bluetooth PC / Tablet Keyboard and Presenter with Laser Pointer (yes, that is the actual product name) is a handy little Bluetooth keyboard with integrated touchpad and laser pointer. I guess FAVI couldn't work Touchpad into the name. It includes some dedicated Android keys, some dedicated presentation keys, a laser pointer, and just about [...]
