HP TouchPad Wireless Keyboard Review


So here we have the HP Wireless Keyboard for the HP TouchPad. Now I know your like “I have a tablet, why do I need a keyboard?”. It can be good in a sense if you happen to use your tablet a lot and want to type a long email, essay, document, or just maybe going on a twitter overload. Its always fun typing on a screen but can be frustrating sometimes.

The HP Wireless keyboard length wise is a inch longer then the TouchPad in landscape mode. Its very light as carrying it with you(if you have a bag), you wouldn’t notice the difference what so ever. You can tell its full support for the TouchPad as it has numerous buttons dedicated to it. There are buttons such as Notifications, Just Type, Keyboard, Card View, Media keys, Brightness keys, and the most important Power key. Each one does exactly how it does which is great I must say. I do wish the “Card View” key would actually allow you to shift through the different cards as when you press it, it basically just brings up the screen with no ability to move around or select one.

The best thing about the Keyboard is it works off Bluetooth. So in essence you can use it with a few Bluetooth enabled devices. I have tested it with my PlayStation 3, HTC Sensation, G2, and of course the HP TouchPad running Android and WebOS. Overall its a great keyboard, excellent if you have a TouchPad but good for other devices based its structure and lightweight design.

The HP TouchPad Wireless Keyboard is available at various retailers.
