Recently, a Solid Line iPad
a physical keyboard to Apple
hot-selling tablet. But it only functions with one particular tablet, so
if you aren't an iPad owner, you can't really take advantage. Now,
there's a more universal alternative. Cervantes Mobile, which is
responsible for quite a few other peripherals in the mobile realm, has
just released the Jorno Keyboard, which is a foldable Bluetooth keyboard
that can be used with any Bluetooth
-enabled phone, UMPC, MID or tablet.
It collapses up neatly for travel, and then unfolds to display a full
QWERTY keyboard that is said to convert your iPhone
, iPad or Android
device into a "fully functioning laptop." That may be somewhat of a
stretch, but it does let you type on your mobile with a QWERTY keyboard
rather than the on-screen virtual keyboard. That's a big step up.
It will go on sale in early 2011 for $79, but pre-orders are live now.
