Verbatim, the global leader in data storage technology, has just announced its new Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard is now shipping to retailers nationwide. Designed to work with iPads, iPhones and other Bluetooth-enabled tablets with HID keyboard support, this thin, portable keyboard delivers a more familiar typing method to touchscreen users. By offering a quick and easy way to compose e-mails and other important documents on-the-go, the Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard enhances productivity and efficiency anywhere.

“The Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard is all about giving our customers the freedom to be mobile,” said Ron Hanafin, Verbatim Product Manager, Accessories & Peripherals. “For on-the-go business professionals, for students working on a late-night term paper at the local coffee shop or for the everyday lifestyle blogger, this portable accessory is the perfect travel companion.”



Plus, users can play, pause and control iTunes music directly from the keyboard’s media console, and the Enhanced Smart Keys offer a simpler way to cut, copy, paste and undo. The low profile, soft-touch keys provide a crisp, responsive feel when typing, while remaining virtually silent.

Additionally, the Ultra-Slim Keyboard’s built-in rechargeable power source eliminates the need for constant battery charging and replacement, and is easily replenished via a USB-to-computer or wall-charger connection.

The Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard comes with a sleek case for greater freedom and mobility, making it the ideal carrying and travel companion.

Features:
  • Compatible with iPad, iPad 2, iPhone, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Motorola Xoom and any tablet with HID keyboard support and Bluetooth connectivity

I've just bought my shiny and expensive Apple Wireless Keyboard for my iPad 2. The quality of the keyboard is superb but of course you pay too much for it :twitch: Those Verbatim don't look quite appealing and the $50 price tag is not a great deal but aceptable.

My Android-based phone has nearly replaced my laptop for when I'm traveling. I've been looking for something like this, but I'm worried it would break easily. It's pretty much plastic, isn't it?

(Come to think of it, my old Moto Razr was pretty sturdy. Thin can be strong.)

Everything is. :p

I see your point though, but that's why you sometimes want to try the keyboards before you buy them. I don't see why it should break so easily though, keyboards are fairly simple constructions that often can stand a bit of mistreatment.
