Zippy BT-500


The Zippy BT-500 Bluetooth keyboard will provide you with a physical keyboard solution for those times when you'd rather not the virtual one on your Galaxy Tab or Apple iPad.

Bluetooth 2.0. Will pair with iPad, iPhone, Playstation 3, and some Android phones. Can pair and automatically switch between 7 different devices. Low battery light. Mobile

No wireless USB support. No media keys. No light indicators for Caps or Num Lock. Small keys take some getting used to

Can be a pain


Censorship is BAD

Works with my Archos Table and My Avio bluetooth adapter ; Works well when paired and connected

Battery life stinks and at random time requires a repairing of devices which is an even bigger pain

Not for BlackBerry


This failed to work with a BlackBerry Curve 9330 even though the pairing was successful. Turns out that the Curve doesn't support HID devices, or at least not this one. Not really the fault of the keyboard though, so I gave it a "middle of the road"...

Solid construction, responsive keys, extremely cute. (The girls say "Awww, lookit!")

Instructions not very well written

Easy Paired, Easy Fast Switching


I got this keyboard for my ipad and Galaxy, the fast switching feature are really helpful for me to jump between the device, the key size after few hour using I can get it on hand and type faster then before. Over all Zippy BT-500 is a great buy for...

Fast Switching, Easy to paired, works with PC, iPhone, iPad, PS/3, Samsung Galaxy (Android 2.2)

Keyboard size is a bit small but understandable is for the mobility design, is just like any other new keyboards, need sometime to get used to it

Gets thejob done, but has room for improvement.


I got this keyboard to use with an HTPC so I can leave it on the coffee table without taking up too much space. It works OK for the most part, with the exception of the space issues mentioned in the "Cons" section. The space bar issues are REALLY...

Compact, simple to setup, no connectivity issues so far

No indicator lights for caps-lock or num-lock. Space bar doesn't respond if pressed off center. Occasionally the space bar generates two space when only pressed once (didn't correct those errors in the review to show frequency of occurrence)

I use this keyboard to connect to a laptop and my iPhone. The built in BlueTooth allows me to switch between the devices with the press of two keys. Setup was quick and easy. The keyboard feels solid, but a bit heavy. The keys are smooth and responsive.

Easy to connect, feels solid, long battery life, responsive keys

a little heavy
