I don’t like using the virtual keyboard on my iPad, but I dislike having a heavy, bulky keyboard case on my iPad even more. Of course, another problem with expensive keyboard cases is that they aren’t likely to fit your next device when you upgrade. With the Logitech Keys-to-go Portable Keyboard, you’ll have a Bluetooth keyboard that’s compatible with smartphones and tablets. It’s a little stand-alone accessory, so you won’t have to worry about bulky cases that won’t fit anything else. Of course, like most devices these days, the Keys-to-go keyboard is optimized to work with Apple iPhones, iPads, and even the Apple TV. It has special iOS function keys, but the standard keyboard functions should work with any Bluetooth-enabled phone or tablet.
The keyboard is compact at only 9.5″ X 5.4″ X 0.24″, and it weighs about 6.4 ounces. You’ll be able to throw it in your bag without even noticing the extra weight. It’s a mechanical keyboard covered with FabricSkin. It’s waterproof and shakes off dirt and crumbs, so it’s built for the rigors of the on-the-go life. You won’t even have to worry about charging it frequently, because it’s good for about 3 months on a charge. The Keys-to-go Portable Keyboard is available in black, red, or teal for $69.99 at Logitech. (Santa! I want the red one!)
