But forget the name and check out the keyboard. First of all, it's Bluetooth, it has full size keys and a standard layout with [...]

I managed to get my hands on the Thinkpad Tablet Keyboard Folio Case from Lenovo recently, fairly cheaply.  I hadn't worried about one before as I found that the Tablet was fine without it for my current needs, but the offer was too attractive to knock back. I've mentioned in several of my Thinkpad Tablet [...]

Over the years I have reviewed quite a few keyboards for mobile devices. My all time favorite is still ThinkOutside's Stowaway keyboard which I reviewed over 12 years ago. I would pay good money for an iPad compatible Bluetooth version of their original model right now. But since I don't have that luxury, I keep looking [...]

They both feature [...]

I've started a quest to find a way to touch-type on an iPad without having to use a heavy case with a non-standard keyboard in it.  I already wrote about my attempt to hack my own case/lapdesk for the iPad and Apple Bluetooth keyboard.  Today, I'll be looking at something completely different.  The iKeyboard started [...]

Sometimes when I'm being nostalgic and remembering how much I loved the Palm Treo smartphone, I start wishing my iPhone had a physical keyboard. Real keys beat touchscreen keyboard keys any day right? I decided to find out by trying the iPhone 4/4S Sliding Bluetooth Keyboard Case and Stand Combo from CELLMACS, which adds a slide out keyboard [...]

Back in the day when Palms and PDAs ruled the portable electronics market, you could get several designs of folding or mini keyboards to connect to your PDA to turn it from a 'consumptive' device (that mostly displays content) to a 'creative' one (one that allows you to easily create new content). Sure, you could [...]

Keyboards have been around for years.  They come in different shape, sizes and colors.  But what if I want a keyboard that can change functionality depending on which program I have open?  Art Lebedev’s Optimus Popularis is a beautifully engineered keyboard where each key is actually a mini screen.  Each key on the Optimus Popularis [...]

I don't like using the on-screen keyboard on my iPad.  There's no tactile feedback, so I can't tell if my hands are in the correct position nor if I actually struck a key.  The TouchFire Screen-Top Keyboard for iPad looks like a very promising way to add a tactile keyboard to your iPad without having [...]

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 [...]

Last December, Andy reviewed the K750 and loved it. The only problems with it were the lack of a Mac specific version that could take advantage of the special apps required to view charging info and the special function keys didn't work. Those problems are now history because Logitech has just announced a Mac version [...]
