Reviewing the Anker Ultra Slim Bluetooth Keyboard

Reviewing the Anker Ultra Slim Bluetooth Keyboard
I never thought I'd enjoy using an Ipad. I'm old-fashioned and do not do a good job of keeping up with technology. I was very satisfied with relying on my laptop. When a friend upgraded his Ipad and gave me his hand-me-down, I was skeptical. But it has slowly grown on me. Especially after he gave me an Anker Ultra Slim Bluetooth Keyboard for Christmas. This Bluetooth Keyboard is far easier and more comfortable to use than I had imagined. If you have an Ipad that you think you'd get more use from if you had a "real" keyboard, this option may be perfect for you.

Anker Ultra Slim Bluetooth Keyboard

This Ultra Slim Bluetooth Keyboard is small enough to be easily taken where I need it and sturdy enough to feel as though I'm typing on my laptop. It does not feel like those rubber mat keyboards I've tried in the stores - and I like that.

Miscellaneous Information:

  • measures only 11.2" x 4.8" x 0.7"
  • requires easy-to-find AAA batteries
  • the battery housing doubles as a raised edge - tilting the keyboard slightly and making it easier to use.
  • the on/off switch and the bluetooth connection was easy enough that even I could figure it all out

I'm still having trouble becoming accustomed to all of the Ipad's bells and whistles, but not having to "tap" everything out one letter at a time on the screen is no longer a barrier. Whether I use the keyboard on a table top or on my lap, it is comfortable. And this Ipad and Keyboard combination is easier to pack and take along to The Shack than my laptop.

  1. Oh Dawn, I think you may just have hit on the one thing I really need. I have an Ipad and find it very difficult to use when doing any kind of word processing. This keyboard sounds like a winner and it is so inexpensive too! Thank you for solving a problem for me.

  2. If I ever get an Ipad, having a keyboard would be an absolute must as I am a touch-typist and find it very difficult to do the one or two-finger, one letter at a time kind of typing many use with Ipads and similar devices. Thanks for this keyboard review, Dawn Rae.

  3. There is a period of adjustment :) , but sure does increase the typing speed from a tablet !

  4. I think I got my ipad about a year ago now. My daughter said that I would need a wireless keyboard and she sent me the information on the one she uses. I couldn't easily use my Ipad without it! I just looked and don't see a brand name on the keyboard, but mine doesn't feel like plastic keys either. It may well be an Anker and they do make using the Ipad a whole lot easier for sure.

  5. That's handy to have on hand. Absolutely have to agree about not using and ipad because of the keyboard. Without a normal sized board it's certainly not for working. This is a good solution. We've had an ultra thin board before, they're pretty cool.

  6. I'm using a Zagg keyboard I got to go with a tablet. The tablet never worked but the keyboard is great when it actually decides to connect. It makes a real difference in how much I can get done on my phone. But it disconnects more often than I'd like and it's a pain to reconnect. Maybe I should try this one -- if it will work with my Android phone.
