    • I hope so! I just requested an email when it is back in stock.

      I travel with a Surface tablet with attached keyboard. That's pretty much perfect for me, but there are times when I'd love to be able to use my phone. Typing on a keyboard is much preferred over typing on the phone when I have a need to send more than a quick text.

    • I get the appeal of minimalism, but I don't think I'd enjoy writing on a small display like a phone. Just like how I prefer not to watch videos on my phone either. I love how we have these mini always-connected computers in our pockets, but if I wanted to write or watch video, I'd still rather use a laptop.

    • I hate to assume, so I will ask- this foldable keyboard will work with an iPad also? Like JazliAziz, I prefere a bit larger screen than a phone, but for travel I tend to prefer an iPad to a laptop.

      A real foldable keyboard for my iPad would be very nice!

    • It works in iOS and Android operating systems. In the description it says that it works on iPad. I also have an iPad at home and can double check, but I’m pretty sure it will just work. 😉

    • It’s ironic that we stepped into a store that specializes in cool new things and this retro Bluetooth keyboard was front and center. Not as portable, but cool. New I guess?

    • Reminds me of the palm portable keyboard I had back in the day! Such a cool bit of kit, push the little button on the side and it would pop open ready to be unfolded and click back together. It was like having my very own transformer.

      You mention using this on a park bench somewhere, wouldn't the foldy bit in the middle cause issues with doing that?

    • That Palm keyboard you’ve linked to brings back so many memories! I also had one and it was definitely transformer like and very much mechanical and bulky 😂.

      I don’t type on the foldable keyboard directly on my lap because of the middle fold as you’ve pointed out. It is also awkward to have a phone on my lap because of the viewing angle.

      I try to do a quick ergonomic set up: place the phone on an arm rest of the bench and away from the keyboard. Then prop the phone up with a ring case. Finally, I would lay the keyboard flat on the bench itself.

      Unfortunately not all park benches have arm rests so that might not work everywhere.

    • Welcome to Cake, eteprm. 🎂 I knew the Palm founders, Jeff Hawkins and Donna Dubinsky, back in the day and used that keyboard! They were two weeks from bankruptcy when a modem maker, US Robotics, bought them to make the Palm Pilot. Amazing.

      How did you come to choose Grug as avatar? 🙂

    • I grew up with Grug! He was popular here in Australia and mum used to read the books to us as kids.

      Guess he stuck in my memory as well from visiting mums kindergarten classrooms over the years and reading to her students.

    • A few years ago I got this Logitech Bluetooth keyboard for my home because my Mac laptop keyboard is hard to type on and glitchy. I can type so much faster and more accurately with this. The bonus is I sit up straighter.

      Problem is I don’t take it to the coffee shops I often work in, so I’m buying a foldable to try.
