Verbatim Wireless Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard Review

Today I am going to check out the Verbatim Wireless Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard. This little keyboard is designed to work with any Bluetooth device that supports a keyboard including the iPhone and tablets. If you need a big keyboard with lots of space that folds into a small package this might be just the thing for you.

Specifications

The Verbatim Wireless Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard uses a folding design and has a pop out stand to hold a smartphone. It comes with the pair of AAA batteries you need for power and a faux leather carry case to keep the keyboard safe. It is shipping now for $104.

In Use

The Verbatim Wireless Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard is surprisingly small for the amount of space you get when you crack the thing open. It's about twice the size of an iPhone and about half the size of the iPad when folded. When you press the button and open the thing up you are greeted with keys that are about the size of the keys on a normal laptop keyboard. It also has keys specifically for controlling volume and media playback on the keyboards left side.

The keys are well sized and space for the most part and offer good tactile feel and feedback. You can actually type quickly using the Verbatim Wireless Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard and be accurate. The keyboard has arrow keys on the bottom right corner of the keyboard. This is the area where the keyboard really irks me.

I am a spammer of the right shift key and don’t ever use the left one. The left shift key on the keyboard is placed exactly where it is supposed to be and is almost full size. The right shift key on the other hand is put to the right of the up arrow rather than right to the left of the period button.

That means after years of typing in my malformed way I end up hitting the up arrow all the time instead of the shift key. I could get used to the new layout with time and if you don’t use the right shift key much this might not be no issue for you at all. Some of the ancillary keys are in odd spots too like the deleted key, so there is a learning curve here.

The little pop out stand on the top right side of the case if sized for smartphones. It is too small to use with my iPad, the iPad simply flops over the top of the stand. It works perfectly with my iPhone though. If you want to use the keyboard with your iPad you will need an iPad stand or holder for it. Alternatively, you can just look down at the tablet.

Verdict

Pros

  • Small size
  • Portable

Cons

  • Weird right shift key
  • Included stand only works for smartphones
 

Conclusion

The Verbatim Wireless Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard is a nice little keyboard for your tablet, assuming you can get used to the weird right shift key.
