A big name for a small device, the FAVI Swivel Screen Portfolio Case with Bluetooth Keyboard

on Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

Ok, I realize not everyone is as enamored with the iPad as I am, but since it is my tablet device of choice, I do like to present interesting options and accessories for it when I find them.

Minisuit Bluetooth QWERTY Keyboard Stand Case for iPad mini 1 & 2 review

on Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

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 & Read More…


One keyboard to pair with them all…

on Thursday, January 30th, 2014
Posted in: Bluetooth Gear, News

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 Read More…

ZAGGkeys Cover for iPad mini (original) review

on Friday, December 6th, 2013

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 Read More…


MiniSuit BluBoard Bluetooth keyboard for iOS, Kindle, Android, Blackberry review

on Thursday, December 5th, 2013

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 Read More…


iwerkz Universal Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard review

on Saturday, October 12th, 2013

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.

ZAGG offers new ZAGGkeys Folio keyboard case for the Samsung GALAXY Note 8.0

on Friday, September 13th, 2013
Posted in: Android related, News

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, Read More…

By: Ryan Chapman
on Sunday, July 28th, 2013
Posted in: Bluetooth Gear, Reviews

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 Read More…

ZAGG introduces a Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad mini

on Thursday, July 11th, 2013

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 Read More…

on Friday, June 21st, 2013

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.

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini review

on Sunday, June 9th, 2013

I’ve reviewed several iPad keyboard cases in my time at The Gadgeteer.  All of them until now have been for the full-sized iPad, and most of those have been leather or faux leather folio cases.  I don’t like folio cases for my iPad, because I just don’t use a keyboard very often, and the big Read More…

ZAGGkeys Solo Bluetooth Keyboard and ZAGGfolio iPad case review

on Sunday, October 14th, 2012

I’ve looked at a lot of Bluetooth keyboards and keyboard cases for the three versions of the iPad I’ve owned.  Usually I find the on-screen keyboard is okay for a quick email, but I can’t type well enough with it to enter anything longer than that.  I don’t often need to enter large amounts of Read More…
