After listening to this week’s show I thought I would get in first with a comment on bluetooth keyboards.
@sil much like you I also like to have a “proper” keyboard with me when I need to type anything lengthy on my phone. So many many years ago I bought one of these:
It’s a “Think Outside Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard”. It runs on AAA batteries and works happily with Windows, Mac, Linux, Android/iOS and various tablets. It spends most of it’s time tucked away in a drawer but every now and then when I go away for the weekend I use it to type out documents and emails, and SSH’ing to a server (which is SOOOOOO much easier with a keyboard). I love the built in stand for my phone, although it’s not much use for a tablet, for a phone it’s perfect.
Sadly it’s not available anymore and I’ve been looking for alternatives. One of the better reviewed ones out there is made by Microsoft, although personally I’m not keep on the split design:
The other one that seems to have some alright reviews is the iClever Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard (which includes backlighting):
In the interest of full disclosure I have to say that both these keyboards are ones that I’ve researched but haven’t used, but they have consistently been highly rated and seem to be fairly durable. Until my foldable one dies I’m not going to be getting another, but I’d be interested to know if anyone else has any experience with / thoughts on foldable bluetooth keyboards.
