To write with ten fingers an email on your smartphone, one needs to have small fingers. For all other Logitech and Microsoft have chic Bluetooth’s keyboards.

Two beautiful scribblers

Never were so many keyboards as it is today; regardless of new input methods such as finger painting Swype on your smartphone or speech recognition on the PC. Who can write with ten fingers and on the road wants to capture longer texts, notes on a Bluetooth keyboard for your mobile or tablet PC?

Two of the most compact models for mobile applications we have tried a few weeks. Keys to go from Logitech cost around 80 Euros, weighs 180 grams and with dimensions of 24 × 13.7 cm and a height of six mm of the larger and flatters both candidates.

Write as on cotton

Who tried the unit with dry runs, as in business, will be remembered as practiced 10 touch-typists skeptical given the lack of precision? Only in the practical operation shows then: You write like on cotton, but quite quickly. About the basic keys, another set is located with function keys, which are primarily intended to cooperate with the Apple devices.

Keys to go are splash-proof and can be cleaned in a fall with a damp cloth. The installed battery may not be changed by the user and can be used with Micro-USB cable refuel on the PC or mobile phone charger with fresh power. A filling will keep for several months: a simple keyboard with many plus points, easily enough for heavy texts.

Microsoft does not build for Microsoft

The Universal Mobile Keyboard Microsoft plays in the same price class (80 Euros) and follows the usual conventions. It is made of plastic, has significantly stepped keys and looks with dimensions of 24.2 × 10.9 cm and a height of 1.2 inches as a particularly small keyboard. Even the labeling of the buttons and sliders at the top with positions for Windows, Android and iPhone indicate how the name: This is a universal keyboard for all conceivable operating systems.

In fact, the device has been smoothly connected with iPhone, iPad, Windows PC and BlackBerry. Only the in-house smartphone operating system from Microsoft is not playing with because it still lacks the necessary Bluetooth profile.

Each device must be re-dock

The highlight of the Microsoft keyboard is its flexibility. The protective top, which is not visible in the photo, can be docked magnetic. With the opening and closing not only the keyboard on and off, but the cover is also a very flexible stand. With the help of two rails, there are three different ways a smartphone or tablet PC to lock the desired angle. Only too thick partner should not be, although the holder seems durable and with a weight of 380 grams also guarantees the necessary traction.

The disadvantage of this candidate is the somewhat narrow key arrangement, which is not every 10-finger-like speed recorder. And unfortunately, you can connect only one device for each of the three operating systems. So if you want to alternately use an Android tablet and an Android smartphone, you must always reconnect. As with the counterpart of the Logitech battery is built, is loaded via a Micro-USB port - and the term should be several months.
