Many iOS users, especially iPad owners, use an external keyboard to get their work done much faster. External keyboard however are large, and in case of keyboard covers, add bulk to your device.
TextBlade is a brilliant new Bluetooth keyboard for iOS that lets you type at speeds of above 100 words per minute, without adding any bulk. The accessory is one third the size and weight of the iPhone, and folds out to reveal an entire QWERTY keyboard, as well as a stand. All the pieces are magnetic, so they snap back together when you’re done typing.
The QWERTY keyboard isn’t like other physical keyboards. It has 8, large buttons, on which there are multiple multitouch keys. The onboard software intelligently detects what key you actually want to type. The space bar is a separate section that also doubles up the battery. A full charge lasts one month, according to the makers of TextBlade.
TextBlade costs $99, and is available for pre order now, with deliveries by March. Let us know what you think about it in the comments below.
