Inateck Bluetooth Keyboard
The Inateck Bluetooth keyboard is a great looking accessory that borrows heavily from from the Apple school of design, white on the front (a black version is also available) with a metallic back for a premium feelling finish.
It also features a rounded spine that means the keyboard sits up, rather than flat, and this removes the need for extendable (and potentially breakable) feet that you often find on keyboards.
This is a compact little Bluetooth 3 keyboard that can be used with Apple, Android or Windows products. Pairing is really easy, just press Fn + C and then search for the keyboard on your device.
It’s a nice addition if you’ve a tablet as it means you have the entire screen to look at, like a monitor, rather than half the screen being taken up by an on screen keyboard.
The main keyboard is a good size and if you’re a fairly speedy typer you won’t have any problems adjusting to the compact design. There isn’t a number pad, but the numbers do run along the top along with various function keys such as play/pause, and this makes this a nice portable keyboard.
Inateck have chosen to use a built in lithium battery that they claim will last 4 months in standby without charging and which you can expect to be tapping away at for 8 hours of continuous use. There is an on/off switch on the keyboard, but it also features an automatic sleep mode/wake up function.
When you do need to charge this you just plug the supplied USB cable into the right hand side, a cable is included and it’s the standard type you’ve probably already got with your mobile.
When you consider an Apple bluetooth keyboard can cost upwards of £50 this is a fantastic alternative, selling for just £23.99 (US$26.99) at the time of review.
