Verbatim’s Wireless Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard for iDevices
by Mark R
This Wireless Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard from Verbatim is a lot like the one from Kensington that I reviewed the other day.
This one is made specifically for iDevices running iOS 4.0 or higher, and it is a heck of a lot more compact. The whole thing folds up to a size that is a little bigger than the palm of your hand, and it has this iPhone Stand that can unfold from the device and snap right back in.
The enhanced Bluetooth ability allows users to join up six devices at once, and the keyboard itself has some great hotkeys available. For example, it has a media console with play, pause, and other ways to control iTunes. Other useful keys include cut, copy, and paste.
For those who don’t want to use the touchpad keyboard on their iPhone or iPad, this might be the best solution for you. Just to let you know, it is battery powered, requiring two AAs to function.
I can see why Verbatim didn’t make it USB powered, perhaps if this was for a laptop, that would be another story. However, this is for iDevices…portable iDevices.
You should be able to pick up the Wireless Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard at the Verbatim online store for a price of $104.
