It’s a basic matter of fact that, no matter how precise and delicate your fingers, no matter how large the virtual keyboard on your display, no matter how smart, adaptive and predictive your keyboard app, typing mistakes will be made; sometimes amusingly, more often infuriatingly.
Even those who lavish far too much care and attention over SMS messages, emails and news articles on award-breaking open source OS-based websites are prone to typos thanks to overzealous key stabbing… and possibly a lack of attention to proofing before sending/posting. But these are the risks we run when working on touchscreen touch-keys.
So why run the risk? Why not, instead, invest in some hardware that’ll reduce those risks considerably, such as a swish Bluetooth keyboard from Logitech? Lovingly named the Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810, despite the unwieldy moniker, the K810 uses the aforementioned wireless technology to instantly pair with your tablet or smartphone to let you tap your tips in comfort, safe in the knowledge that any spelling slips, poor punctuation or gratuitously bad grammar will now be the sole fault of your own dodgy education.
Retailing in the UK for £90, the K810 may not be the only option out there but we’ve singled it out for another reason beyond its sleek good looks, lightweight portability and, as the name gives away, the auto-adjusting back-light that helps keep your copy clear: not only will it instantly play nice with Android, thanks to Logitech’s easy-switch it also works equally well with Apple products and even the new Windows 8 OS, flitting from one to the other at the press of a key, making it ideal for promiscuous multi-platform users.
Available from November, whilst we may disapprove of your filthy philandering, Android it seems is both giving and forgiving, so head here to pick up your aid to playing the platform field.
Shame on you…
