This FAVI Bluetooth Keyboard for Tablets is Palm-Sized

FAVI Entertainment introduced on Thursday a pocket-sized Bluetooth keyboard with a built-in trackpad costing $49.99, now available at your local Staples store.

Called the FAVI Mini Bluetooth Keyboard, this gadget is ideal for smartphone and tablet owners who absolutely detest tapping on a virtual keyboard. It has familiar Android-specific buttons for easy access, and special hotkeys for video and audio navigation. The built-in trackpad provides full mouse control as well as "tap to click" and page scroll.

"The lightweight and portable keyboard is ideal for the boardroom as well as the classroom," said Jeremy Yakel, co-founder of FAVI Entertainment. The gadget even has backlit keys for dim-light typing, its own built-in laser pointer, and PowerPoint slide buttons, great for office presentations.

FAVI claims that the device will connect (up to 50 feet) with nearly all Bluetooth-enabled devices like the Kindle Fire HD, Google Nexus 7, iPad, Samsung Galaxy and more as well as PCs, laptops and Mac. Don't have native Bluetooth connectivity? This pocket-sized gadget comes with its own Bluetooth USB receiver that stores neatly inside the device when not in use.

"The intuitive key layout allows for fast and accurate typing all while reducing hand / finger strain. Whether you are the hunt &peck type or a professional secretary, the FAVI Mini Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad Mouse is sure to impress," the company said.

    Not sure that I'd ever actually use it for a phone/tablet, but it might prove useful for when I want to lay down and still be able to chat, change a movie, etc on my desktop PC. Not a bad price if it's decent quality, especially noting that it includes the receiver.

    If I have a tablet, it's in my hand. How can I hold a tablet and this device at the same time? If my smartphone/tablet is in a dock, I'm usually around something else with a larger screen on which to watch videos. I don't take my dock with me when I'm at my friends' houses.

    Yargnit was right, this would be better for a HTPC or something, not a smartphone or tablet.

    Uhh.. I've owned one for almost a year, branded Kogan.
    It's exactly the same thing but I found it and purchased it a year before Tom's Hardware knew about it. lol.
