ZAGGkeys FLEX Bluetooth Keyboad Hands-on

Zagg is showing off a nifty Bluetooth keyboard for your tablet needs. You can use it with iOS and Android tablets, but I was also told that it’s been tested with Windows Phone too. All the functionality that the keyboard offers doesn’t currently work with Windows Phone, but the core functions should. It’s designed for iOS and Android and has a toggle switch to set the keyboard up for either of them. There is no software required to take advantage of the functions either.

The Keys Flex case doubles as a universal stand for your tablet as well.

Below is a quick video walk through of the ZAGGkeys  FLEX Bluetooth keyboard.

Like I said, the keyboard can be used with many devices.

The ZAGGkeys FLEX is versatile and can be used interchangeably with the Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod touch devices, Galaxy Tabs, Android devices, and some smartphones.

In addition to the regular keys, there is a top row of function keys that perform different functions depending on your mobile OS:

Battery life is expected to go a couple of months under  normal use with its built-in 510 mAH rechargeable battery. You

The price point for the ZAGGkeys  FLEX is $79.99.

    I never suggest this product because of it’s price. I do not tend to give no more than 50 bucks for this product. Besides, it might be a problem that going from a screen to another when you are typing on Pages. It is absolutely espensive product in Europe.
