If you find yourself typing often, editing documents, making presentations, writing articles and what not with your iPad, a physical keyboard that can connect to your iPad proves to be very useful. More time is saved, and more things are done faster when using a physical keyboard as opposed to doing all of those things on the on-screen keyboard of your iPad. Furthermore, a physical keyboard that connects to your iPad via Bluetooth is even more practical and convenient.
Say goodbye to tangled wires, messy workplaces, and even shortage of the product’s life due to the wire being constantly pulled, bent and squished. We are here to share with you some of the best iPad [...]
The tablet, which debuted to positive reception at IFA 2013 in September, is the successor to last year’s 101 XS and offers a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 resolution IPS display, a 1.6GHz quad-core Cortex A9 ARM processor and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
It also comes with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, dual-band Wi-Fi, and the neat Coverboard magnetic keyboard cover which was also on the first-generation model.
Somewhat unsurprisingly considering these middling specs, the tablet is now available at U.S. retailers for a respectable $279.
We all have different tastes. We all have different personalities. We all have different levels of technical proficiency. I like sci-fi; you like romance novels. I like Italian food; you like Indian. It should be no surprise that with billions of people in the world we each approach every day with all of our life long experiences guiding our every action.
Why then, do form designers assume that everyone who will use their meticulously designed electronic form will have a four-year degree from MIT?
Designers tend to assume that while their users may not be as skilled as they are, that there’s an inherent like if not love of technology in that user base. But as [...]
Peripherals promise to be a key part of the offering. Sources say Microsoft will show a new Surface docking station that will work with Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 models only and include one USB 3 and three USB 2 ports.
Also said to be on tap is a Surface Power Cover, a thicker version of the current Surface Type cover/keyboard. This cover will include a built-in battery that will extend the battery life of Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 devices by some (still unknown) amount.
In the past, concerns have been raised on how health can be effected by too much screen time (particularly in education), the ‘tablet hunch’ and desktop keyboards, with the latter two in particular often cited for causing posture problems and bringing about repetitive strain injury.
However, while those issues may not cause any serious health issues, the latest report from a consumer watchdog suggests that mobile devices are a real risk when it comes to cleanliness.
In a new report, UK product-testing charity Which details that smartphones, tablets and desktop keyboards often carry “hazardous” levels of germs, with these sometimes bringing about [...]
Consumer electronics design has been on a trajectory of smaller, thinner, lighter, more responsive, and more intuitive for decades. From tablets to smartphones and the entire category of wearable computing, we’re beginning to see devices move into paper-thin territory – resulting from the capabilities, size and scalability of device components.
So what’s next? Advanced haptic components create multimodal sensations from inside keyboards and wearables to transform the way tablets and devices are designed and used.
As an inventor, futurist and entrepreneur, I could not be more excited about what’s next. The idea of a neo-sensory age of computing is [...]
Announced at TechCrunch’s Disrupt conference in San Francisco, Marsden detailed how Dryft overlays a virtual QWERTY keyboard on the screen as soon as you’ve rested all eight-fingers on the display, and went onto to explain how it uses the tablet’s touch sensor and accelerometer to judge when you are typing or simply resting your palms.
The keyboard neatly fits around your fingers and keys can be adjusted in size, while Dryft says that this — and the improved autocorrect accuracy — enables users to type up to 80 words per minute.
When showcasing Dryft on an Android tablet app at the conference, Marsden said that the service will [...]
The paper-thin keyboard is less than half of a millimeter thick, and it uses Bluetooth Smart wireless technology to connect to devices such as tablets or desktops. The keyboard is also flexible and can be integrated directly into a protective smartphone or tablet cover.
It will be shown publicly at this week's IFA conference in Berlin. The keyboard uses CSR’s 1010 chip for Bluetooth Smart connectivity to iOS 7, Android v4.0, and Windows 8 devices.
CSR said it worked with Atmel and Conductive Inkjet Technology to make the wireless touch surface
The new products comprise a keyboard case for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and three standalone cases for the Galaxy Tab 7.0, 8.0 and 10.1.
The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio is the leader of the pack, entwining a folio case and a Bluetooth keyboard.
Logitech says that the keyboard has keys in the same location as full-size keyboards, making for a fast and fluid typing experience, and adds that the SecureLock system keeps the corners of the Galaxy Tab fastened to the case’s frame. Powerful magnets keep the case securely closed when the tablet is not in use.
The Ultrathin Keyboard Folio also has a dual-view stand to hold the Galaxy Tab either upright for typing or [...]
Now on version 1.1, the Google Keyboard app (free, Google Play) has been updated to allow tablet users to long-press on the top row of keys for quick access to numbers.
In the past, this functionality has only been available on Android smartphones, with tablet users instead forced into the fiddly process of toggling alternate keys to bring up numbers.
As part of the update, Google has also improved the keyboard layout for certain languages and made bug fixes and stability improvements.
