It’s not always possible to have a laptop on the go, but the likelihood is you’ll have your mobile or tablet with you. EC Technology have come up with a nifty little accessory to give you laptop style typing on the go without having to carry around a bag of tech: a foldable bluetooth keyboard!
Looking a little bit like an original Nintendo DS, flip the two sides of the EC Technology foldable keyboard open and you get a good sized bluetooth keyboard to tap away on. The folding mechanism feels very sturdy and in its smallest state it easily fits into a jacket pocket for carrying around on the go.
It can be used with iOS, Windows or Android, although has only been tested this with a 7″ Android tablet. Pairing this little keyboard with the tablet was very easy, the keyboard powers up when you open it out, and will reconnect to your device.
Typing was a lot easier compared to typing on screen, especially with a 7″ tablet being an odd size for typing, a bit too big to type as you would on a mobile, but not big enough to type landscape as you would on something larger, such as an iPad.
Pop you phone or tablet on a table and you can easily type using both hands while looking at the screen, I can see this being really handy if travelling by train and needing to get some work done.
The keyboard feels well built and has a range of additional functions available, such as controlling media playback.
With this being a compact keyboard it takes a little bit of time to get use to the layout of some keys, but overall it’s a great little travel gadget.
