Keyboards have been around a long, long time. And come to think of it, so have Bluetooth keyboards and flexible keyboards. But that said, we haven't seen a good option combining both of those in quite some time, and that's where Scosche comes in. The accessory maker has just revealed their new freeKEY, a flexible / wireless keyboard that's designed specifically to travel well and use with the iPad 2 or any other BT-enabled tablet.



It's a flexible membrane of a keyboard, complete with a waterproof exterior and support for Windows, Mac OS X, Android and iOS. There's an expected range of 30 feet, and once paired with a device the freeKEY will automatically re-pair with that device the next time the keyboard is powered on. For $59.99, the company's also throwing in a etractable USB to micro-USB charge cable for easy charging. Worth it for the utility? If you end up banging out quite a few emails on your slate, we'd say "yes."

Oxnard, CA, – April 28, 2011 – Scosche Industries, award-winning innovator of consumer technology, is excited to announce the availability of the Scosche freeKEY – flexible, wireless keyboard for the Apple iPad 2 and other Bluetooth enabled tablets.  The water resistant freeKEY is perfect for working on the go, has a range of up to 30 feet, and rolls up for easy storage in a backpack or purse.

“With tablets becoming more and more common in the workplace we wanted to create a mobile typing solution for the tablet user,” said Kas Alves, Executive Vice President of Scosche Industries.  “The freeKEY gives our customers the ability to type more in-depth documents that would be otherwise difficult to create.”

The silicone freeKEY supports Bluetooth 2.0 and is compatible with Windows, Android and Mac OS X operating systems.  Once paired with a device the freeKEY will automatically re-pair with that device the next time the keyboard is powered on.  Scosche also includes a retractable USB to micro-USB charge cable for easy charging.
