Plugable® Bluetooth Full-Size Folding Keyboard and Case for Android, iOS, Windows

Description

For fast typists or those with large hands, most folding keyboards are just too small for comfort! This sturdy Bluetooth keyboard features five rows of standard-sized keys laid out in classic keyboard style and properly spaced for accurate typing. They are topped off by a sixth row of function keys for frequently used Android, iOS, and Windows operations. Yet, when you are ready to go, it folds smaller than a paperback book and fits right in a bag or briefcase with your tablet or phone.

This Plugable keyboard is elegantly engineered to strike a balance between these competing demands:

  • The full-size keyboard layout features crisp high-quality keys, yet folds into a package smaller than a paperback book.
  • The back and sides are strong but lightweight aluminum. The hinges are stainless steel. This makes it extremely durable.
  • It comes with a soft but strong case that both protects the keyboard and anything else you’d throw in a bag with it.
  • The case transforms into stand for your phone or tablet and adjusts to any angle.
  • The keyboard has special support for Android, Windows, and iOS key functions.
  • Its USB-charged battery lasts for weeks of normal use.

Details

This keyboard has two wings that fold out from the center on stainless-steel hinges, offering a large area for typing. Strategically-placed magnets at the joints and edges secure the wings when the keyboard is both opened and closed. Two stabilizing tabs fold down from the ends to steady the keyboard while you type.

During use, the keyboard is surrounded on three sides by solid aluminum. When folded, the backs of the wings cover the top, providing durable metal protection on all sides. The inner workings are further protected by plastic covers over the hinges.

The normal-size keys are properly spaced for accurate typing and have a crisp and familiar touch, with the precise scissors-type mechanism found on quality desktop keyboards.

Five rows of regular keys replicate a standard desktop keyboard. A sixth row at the top provides shortcuts to many functions in Android and iOS devices, while working as keys F1-F12 in Windows. The layout is similar to larger laptop keyboards.

The fitted case is lined with soft microfiber on the inside to protect the keyboard, while a soft leather-like surface on the outside prevents marring of your phone and other items during transport. A quick flip of the cover turns it into an adjustable stand for your phone or tablet (see folding instructions below).
