Scosche freeKEY Flexible Wireless Keyboard Launches

Flexible keyboard is perfect for iPad users

Scosche freeKEY Flexible Wireless Keyboard Launches
 
 

The iPad is an excellent replacement for a notebook or a netbook for many users. The one clear downside compared to using a netbook or a notebook for the iPad or iPad 2 is the lack of a keyboard. The onscreen keyboard will work for light work, but when it comes to typing documents or working on the iPad for a long time you need an external keyboard.

Scosche has long been making a lot of cool accessories for Apple gear and the company has unveiled a new accessory. The new device is the freeKEY flexible keyboard. The keyboards is designed to work with just about anything. It has Bluetooth technology inside and will work with the iPad, iPhone, Droid, or anything else that supports a Bluetooth keyboard.

"With tablets becoming more and more common in the workplace we wanted to create a mobile typing solution for the tablet user,” said Kas Alves, Executive Vice President of Scosche Industries. “The freeKEY gives our customers the ability to type more in-depth documents that would be otherwise difficult to create.”

The coolest thing about the freeKEY is that it is made from flexible material and can be rolled up for traveling. The sealed nature of the keyboard design also makes it waterproof. That means if you spill a drink on the keyboard while working at lunch you won't be looking for a new keyboard before you can get back to work.

The downside for me with any roll up keyboard is that the roll tends to be bulky. Folding keyboards are at times smaller and less bulky to carry. However, most foldable keyboards aren't water-resistant either. The Bluetooth freeKEY has a 30-foot wireless range so you can control the tablet from across the room if your eyes are good enough.

It has a traditional QWERTY layout and has no number pad. It ships with a retractable USB cable for charging and I would bet that cable will allow you to use the keyboard with your computer to if you want. You can order the freeKEY right now for $59.99.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
