Good Concept, Poor Execution


It was difficult to pair with the device because some of the numbers don't work. When it eventually gave me a set of numbers that actually worked, it paired nicely. Then when I tried to type, I noticed some letters (like "I") just didn't work. Maybe I...

Great idea: a folding keyboard for Android phones. Takes up very little room in your luggage, yet folds out to a full size keyboard

Several of the numbers, a few letters (T, I, K, & R) don't work. By jiggling the keyboard, I was able to get SOME of the keys working, but then others stopped working. I think Caps Lock was also intermittent as I was unable to get lower case letters...

decent keyboard


Not about product, but about JR: keep up being a "class" act - great business to order from, prompt, honest, and easy to deal with!

Good but could be better.


To pair with an android device, these are the steps: (I found them in a review on another retailer's website.) In Android: Turn on blue tooth. Make Android device discoverable. Scan for devices. Keyboard: Turn on the keyboard. Push the "Pair" button...

Nice keyboard, good size, well packaged, includes a stand that stores in the keyboard and a nice case, locks open so it won't fold during use even if on an uneven surface, physical on/off switch so battery doesn't run down when not using

Hard to find instructions for pairing with Android, can't store more than one pairing (so have to repair every time you switch what device you're using it with, not an issue if only using with one device), stand isn't sturdy enough for even a 7 inch...

Fatal Flaw


I bought this keyboard to help make email a little easier on my Xoom since I have large hands. I use the tablet a lot at trade shows, and its handy for storing and sharing catalog pages as well as keeping up with my clients. The keyboard works well...

Small form factor, keyboard layout, lots of keystroke options

NOT compatible with native gmail interface in Honeycomb 3.2 ; i-pad-centric, like the rest of the world (*-sigh-*)

Nice Unit to have for Tablet


I recently received a tablet for the Holidays, and wanted a device to type from rather than using the onboard touch screen. Looked at another device online but was backordered. Found this Unit and it was even on Sale! Have been successful with...

Verbatim Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Keyboard


Outstanding keyboard. Works great with my Motorola Xoom. Easy to set-up, and use. Great size, and an awesome case. Well thought out unit. Nice short-cut keys. I would recommend.

I dont have an iPad but I have a microsoft slate tablet from exon. I use windows 8 os and this keyboard is something one can ever desire for when it comes to handling the tablets. So good and durable. Easy to carry and store. Slimmest design I could...

Consumer review by: Toolie (



I have had my keyboard for about a week, and compared to the first iPhone keyboard I bought, this one is a dream. The keys are almost full-size, but the keyboard is very compact. I noted some of the other reviews complaining about the inconsistent size...
