Typing on your smartphone on the go can be tough. This is especially true if you’re a blogger covering a Press Event and you’re story has to be up before the competition.
The US$99 TextBlade Bluetooth Keyboard from WayTools (Deer, 2015, January 16) isn’t a bad choice. But sometimes you wish you had a real keyboard.
No more guessing if you hit the right key while touch-typing on your smartphone; the US$100 Universal Foldable keyboard from Microsoft is the keyboard you’ve been looking for.
US$100 Universal Foldable keyboard from Microsoft – Bluetooth to the rescue
Compatible with Apple iOS, Google Android and Windows Phone, the Universal Foldable keyboard from Microsoft can connect to up to two (2) devices simultaneously, in case you want to type with your Tablet and do video with commentary using your smartphone’s Camera!!
High school and college students who have a Smartphone but can’t afford a laptop will love this US$100 Universal Foldable keyboard from Microsoft, as it’s made for young adults in mind.
Albeit spill proof, it’s not exactly waterproof.
The Universal Foldable keyboard from Microsoft is 29.49 cm (11.61 inches) wide by 12.45 cm (4.9 inches) high when unfolded and 5 mm (0.45 inches) thin, when folded (Hachman, 2015) and stowed away. With such a thin profile you can stow it away in your knapsack, ready to pull out on a desk to do some quick, accurate typing.
Suddenly, not having a Laptop or Chromebook (Deer, 2014, December 2) while surviving the K-12 High School system isn’t a problem anymore; your smartphone was always capable of being that device.
Jamaican children will benefit as well, as those DL800 (Deer, 2014, December 10) and DL900 (Deer, 2014, December 6) Smartphone that they purchased from Digicel (Deer, 2014, December 13) can now become computers, making it unnecessary to have a laptop.
It would also make those tablets given to students under the TIS (Tablet in Schools) program for Jamaican High Schools (Deer, 2015, January 27) more useful, as they’d have a keyboard.
All you needed was the right portable keyboard; the US$100 Universal Foldable keyboard from Microsoft.
