My all time favorite keyboard for a PDA (remember those?) was the original Stowaway Keyboard from Think Outside. They later came out with a Bluetooth model, but it was smaller and didn't match the cool factor of the first one. It's been 15 years since I reviewed the Stowaway and I've been hoping someone would [...]

I love the Samsung Galaxy S Tab 10.5 tablet that I bought earlier this year. I even took it with me on our last vacation to use instead of my Macbook Air. It worked pretty well except when I needed to type in a lot of text. For those times, I prefer an actual keyboard. [...]

Bluetooth keyboard cases for iPads may be a convenient way to always have a keyboard with your tablet, but they do have problems.  They are all undersized keyboards, usually with non-standard arrangements of the non-alphabetic keys, and they aren't always easy to type on, especially for touch typists.  The cases are often heavy and clunky [...]

Who besides me remembers the Stowaway folding keyboard from ThinkOutside? Although it's been over 15 years ago since I reviewed it, I continue to think about how cool it was and still is after all these years. If there was a Bluetooth version of this Stowaway keyboard available today, I'd buy one. But there isn't, so [...]

The onscreen keyboards we use on our smartphones and tablets work just fine most of the time, but when you need to enter a lot of text, they become more annoying than useful. To remedy that situation, most people opt for a cover that has a built in keyboard. That works ok, but drastically increases the bulk and [...]

Microsoft is offering some pretty cool looking Universal Mobile Keyboards that work with Apple, Android, and Windows smartphones and tablets.  The  cover protects the keyboard when not in use, and opening the cover wakes the keyboard - and closing it sleeps the keyboard, of course.  The cover detaches and has a built-in stand to support [...]
