Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard

 

The Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard is an excellent addition for any Windows 8 tablet, and a decent Bluetooth keyboard for any tablet user.

Portable. Bluetooth connectivity. Windows 8-specific function keys. Cover doubles as a tablet stand.

Cramped for typing.

Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse and Mobile Keyboard review

 

When Microsoft first announced the Wedge Touch mouse for Windows 8, plenty of people wondered whether the blunt, flipper-shaped device was actually practical. Its accompanying keyboard, meanwhile, looked unusually small, with a magnetized rubber cover...

Convenient Charm keys ; Protective cover / stand works well as both ; Portable but not cramped

Keyboard cover fits a little less closely over time ; Price is on the high side

Has Microsoft built the mouse of the future?

Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard review

 

Tablet owners, Microsoft has a new keyboard you should know about. Yes, it's meant for Windows 8 , but the Bluetooth-based Wedge Mobile Keyboard will connect with any current operating system -- tablet, computer, or otherwise. The keyboard itself is...

Sturdy construction and thoughtful design make the Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard stand out.

It's a tad pricey at $79, and (no surprise) it lacks universal hot keys that work in non-Microsoft operating systems.

The Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard offers one of the best-designed wireless Bluetooth keyboard and tablet-stand combinations on the market, especially when you pair it with a Windows 8 device.

Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard Review and Ratings

 

This Bluetooth keyboard is an excellent compact companion for a Windows 8 tablet, and the well-designed cover doubles as a handy stand to prop up your slate.

Striking industrial design ; Looks and feels sturdy ; Includes Windows 8 shortcut keys

A bit heavy ; Shortcut keys make it Windows-centric, although keyboard does work with Android and Apple devices ; Keys feel slightly cramped

If you're looking for a well-designed tablet keyboard for a Windows 8 slate, the Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard is an excellent choice, especially if you're looking for a stand for your tablet that lets you easily adjust your screen angle and...

Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard review

 

A keyboard designed for Windows 8 tablets

Portable ; Easy to connect ; Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts ; Nice design ; Cover doubles as stand

Only suitable for tablets ; Expensive

Overall the Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard isn't a keyboard that you'd want to use with a desktop PC, but if you're going to be doing a lot of writing on your tablet, then it is essential, and the Windows 8-specific shortcut keys are incredibly handy.

Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard review

 

Microsoft's Wedge Mobile Keyboard is a smart but frustrating device. It connects to your PC or tablet via Bluetooth, but it doesn't come with a dongle, so you'll have to make sure that whatever you connect it to is Bluetooth-enabled before use. Its...

Often disconnects and it’s too small for comfortable desktop PC use, but it’s a handy and portable keyboard for tablet users

Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard review

 

The Bluetooth-enabled Wedge Mobile Keyboard has special Windows 8 keys, and is portable and solid. We tested the Wedge Mobile Keyboard using the Samsung Series 7 Slate running Windows 8, alongside the Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse.

It's far from cheap, but if you are a regular business traveler and you use a Windows 8 device we can heartily recommend the Wedge Mobile Keyboard.

I love most Microsoft products these days - the Sculpt Keyboard is a favorite of mine (have 4 of them at work and home). This keyboard though is too small to be practical. I cant type accurately on it after 4 months of trying. I went to apple's...
