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, but the new ZAGGkeys Folio keyboard case for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 can. It has a clamshell design with a hinge that offers over 135° of viewing angles. It also features backlit keys in seven interchangeable colors and three lighting levels. The built in rechargeable battery offers up to three months of use between charges. At only 8.47 in (215.1 mm) wide, I’m not convinced it would make a perfect portable workstation, but for people with small hands, it just might. The ZAGGkeys Folio is available now through ZAGG for $99.99.
