I have an iPad and an iPhone, and I really have no issues using the onscreen keyboard for most tasks. However, if I am doing something like an email or surfing the web where I will be typing a lot, a keyboard would be appreciated. Now, a company called Cervantes Mobile has announced a new portable keyboard that will work with both Apple and Android devices called the Jorno.
The Jorno is a small portable keyboard that folds and connects to devices using Bluetooth. It ships with a small dock that will hold your device in portrait or landscape mode while you work. This might be the perfect thing for iPad users who work on documents frequently. Keep in mind that the keys on the keyboard are 15% smaller than normal keys.
That means they are almost full size and should be on par with netbook keyboards, so you still won’t be able to type as fast as you do on a full-size keyboard. When folded the thing is about the size of a deck of cards.
The keyboard isn’t set to launch until early 2011, but you can pre-order one now for $79 (USD) – and you should, since once it launches the price will go up to $99.
