Mini Wireless Text Pad: Like a Blackberry for Your Pc

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  November 23, 2009

I for one like my computer keyboards to be big enough for my fat fingers to maneuver without typos. But if you’re adept with using your thumbs to type on your Blackberry, you might enjoy this new accessory for your Windows PC.


This compact wireless handheld keyboard feature a tiny QWERTY keypad like you’d find on your mobile phone, and lets you transmit keystrokes to your computer from up to 30 feet away. There’s also a little wireless trackpad so you can control the cursor from across the room. The keypad also has a bright backlight for use in darkened rooms.


Just plug in the included RF receiver USB dongle, charge up the controller, and you’ll be e-mailing from across the room in no time. Check out the video clip below to see the keyboard in action.

At first glance, I struggled to understand why you’d want a keyboard this small, but then I realized it might be good for doing presentations, as well as for controlling an HTPC setup if you want to surf the web on your big screen television. Or maybe for when your cat wants to use the computer. The wireless keyboard/touchpad is available over at USB Geek for $62 (USD).
