iPad/Tablet Stand/Keyboard

Just A Head's Up!

Wednesday, December 18, 2013 by RedneckDude | Discussion: Mobile Tech

Guys, I hope this isn't considered spam.  

 

I got a great half price deal on this and I love it, so I wanted to tell you guys, in case someone else wanted the discount.

 

It's a nice Bluetooth keyboard/stand for any tablet. I use it with my iPad and my Android. It's at less than half price from the MFG. and sells at Staples for double what I paid!

 

Listed at $129.99, I paid $39.99.  Staples dot com has it at $79.99.

Brookstone makes a very high quality product.

If you want a more mobile option, look at Logitech's keyboard cases.  I've been using the FabricSkin Keyboard Folio with my iPad Air for about a month now & it's a great product.  Bit pricey, but really fits the bill for mobile use.  They have similar configurations using plastic keyboards for $90-100.

I like that, Redneck.  Kind of tempts me to get that and a tablet and forget about the whole Windows desktop thing.

that looks like a great deal RnD.... nifty little design...

 

I have a little bluetooth one that is a stand as well... and the ipad clips into it to become a great cover for extra safety and portability.... but for more time spent typing.. your design looks perfect...

 

I just bought a black icrib... fabulous for lying in bed net surfing or watching a movie... or sitting outside... works very well, very stable... just a simple bean bag... there are more fussy designs out there... but this one suited best...

 

good little Xmas present for kids/friends with tablets too...

  Well, since you went there.....lol. I also got this little case/speaker for any tablet. Requires two aa batteries.  Sounds pretty good. Actually have a smaller one for my android phone as well.

 

Video sounds like ka ka.

For one, it's ugly.

 

Yours looked good compared to mine

Dunno how to screenshot it.  If I figure it out, I'll post a screeny.

to screenshot on the ipad....  hold down the 'off' button while pressing the 'start' button... and release... there will be a while flash light and camera click...

 

yeah... don't like the differences here...         link...

 

not going to update any time soon methinks....  already very pissed off with what Yahoo has done to their Email... absolutely shocking... went for pretty over functionality... livid..

I was not a fan of the iOS7 redesign.  Until using it.  What it looks like is much less important than what it does & how it does it.

iOS7 is getting very close to what a mobile device OS ought to be, the 'skin' aside.  Not unreasonable to say that iOS7 is to iOS6 what Windows7 is to XP.

Wish i came across this sooner! That keyboard looks great for that price. I ended up with an aluminum keyboard case which does seem a bit more portable than the brookstone version, but hell that thing is nice. Anyone have any experience with the Logictech versions?
