    Keyboard next to tablet on table

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I am looking for. I think a wireless keyboard just brings out so much more functionality from my iPad. I can easily type a 10 page essay with this device. After you fold it, it is smaller than the size of my palm. It is slim and tiny enough you can snug it in any pocket. Very light and easy to take around. The bluetooth connection works really well. I also really like the design, the simple coloring makes it match any electronic devices that you own whether it is a tablet or laptop. There are rubber feet on the corner, so although it is light and thin it can still stand securely on table tops. I also really like the mint accent for the function keys. There is just something very aesthetic about this product especially considering the amazing price. I strongly recommend it. " —pikapika
