This Collapsable Wireless Keyboard Is as Pocketable As Your Phone

Between yesterday's expanding iPad keyboard case and this smaller collapsing alternative for smartphones, Elecom seems to have its sights on conquering the portable Bluetooth keyboard market. But victory will depend on whether or not the Japanese company can price its products a little more affordably.

The sliding mechanism splits the keyboard in the middle so both halves can stack atop each other, while a folding cover doubles as a stand for smartphones in portrait or landscape orientations. But it works with any device that can connect to a Bluetooth keyboard, and with a fresh AAA battery you can expect to get about eight months use before needing a replacement. The TK-FBP049E is also available in your choice of white or black, but that option doesn't even come close to justifying its $182 price tag.

Not as good as the old Palm ones; they're super lightweight and feel great to type on.
