Mechanical keyboards are back from the dead, in style and better than ever. Today's keyboards are all about being as stealthy as a hovering black ninja in complete darkness. Like many of you out there, I love me my silent and squishy keyboard keys with an extra layer of silence that is a silicone keyboard cover. But that all changed when I went mechanical. Having had no real experience using the full frontal mechanical keyboards of today, I went in head first not knowing what sort of madness will come out from Das Keyboard. The company is known to have one of the best mechanical keyboards known to man. And they've just released a Mac version, the Model S Professional for Mac. The full review awaits you after the cut!Read More
There is a growing amount of keyboard case hybrids surfacing to enable iPhone 4 users the full enjoyment of how it really feels to type on an actual real keyboard rather than on that tactile-less virtual on-screen keyboard.

Although it isn't quite The One, the Kiano 4 really wants to find a place in your pants and it will literally do anything to get in there. We mean it. Is it worthy enough? Find out after the jump!

Padacs' pocket-sized QWERTY bluetooth keyboard is a great alternative for people who love the iPad, but hate typing on the onscreen keyboard. The keyboard measures 115mm x 60mm x 7mm which makes it very pocketable and easy to carry around. The keyboard is also very light as it is made out of plastic, and because it is made out of plastic and is very light, it could feel cheap to some people. Personally, I like how light it is because it makes it very easy to carry around either in your pocket, or in a bag. The keyboard takes around 20-30 mins to charge from a flat battery and lasts for several hours of typing continuously.
It is a very nice typing experience on the mini bluetooth keyboard, given the size. There are 5 rows altogether, the first row is numbers, the next 3 are for letters and punctuation and the last row is for the spacebar, function, shift, CTRL, ALT and delete keys. The keys are evenly spaced and raised just high enough to provide a pleasant clicking sound when the keys are pressed.
Padacs bluetooth mini keyboard supports many devices and OS's including OS X, iOS 4, Android, PS3, Windows, WinMo 5.0 or higher and Symbian S60. And when using it with OS X, the number row can control things like brightness, volume, expose, play, pause and skip track when Function key is pressed.
In conclusion, Padacs bluetooth mini keyboard is one of the best bluetooth keyboards I have tried. mainly because just how portable it is and how it is very easy to type on. The Bluetooth Mini Keyboard is shipping to the US & Canada for $59.95. And one more thing, this review was typed on the Bluetooth Mini Keyboard, and it was great!
