If you’re the type of person who likes to work while you’re on the go but don’t like cumbersome keyboards and troublesome touch screens, the new Verbatim Mobile Bluetooth Keyboard may be the answer. If you’ve been looking for a portable keyboard that’s easy to pack around to do your daily tasks, you don’t have to look any further.


The portable keyboard work several mobile devices such as iPad,  iPad 2, iPhone (News - Alert), Android tablet and more.

The Verbatim Mobile Bluetooth Keyboard offers the following additional features:

  • The keyboard has a compact design that folds in the center, giving users the maximum portability and storage.
  • Verbatim’s keyboard can be paired with up to six devices at one time, providing a great way to multi-task.
  • The keyboard has a built-in media console that lets you control your iTunes with dedicated pause/play buttons.
  • The keyboard’s soft-touch and smart keys allow you to control iOS commands such as cut, paste, undo, copy, power off, and device lock.
  • The keyboard features an ultra-compact design that folds for maximum portability and easy storage in the included carrying case.

The keyboard also provides a quick and easy way to create e-mails and other types of documents with a Bluetooth-enabled tablet.

The portable keyboard retails for $79.99, and is packed with plenty of features, making it the perfect gift for the holiday season.

The Verbatim Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard is designed to work with your iPhone and iPad (iOS 4 or higher), but can also work with Bluetooth-enabled Android (News - Alert) 3.0 tablets and the BlackBerry PlayBook.

It comes equipped with a nice leather carrying case, and measures approximately 6.25” x 4” x 0.75″ when folded closed. The plastic body is relatively solid, and has some weight to it.

The keyboard opens easily by pressing a latch, and sits in place with four small rubbery feet. The keyboard has the usual play/pause, fast-forward, rewind, and volume up/down buttons on the left side—along with Control, Function, Alt, Alt Gr, @, and Menu keys.

There are also some additional media controls and keyboard shortcuts that work well with the iPhone and iPad. Two dedicated Home keys are also available with square symbols, as well as a key for toggling the on-screen soft keyboard on and off.
