Sony Cleopatra BKB10 Ultra Slim Bluetooth and NFC Wireless Keyboard – QWERTY Keyboard Layout, Built-in Rechargeable Battery, Bluetooth 3.0 interface, 5 mm thin, 17.5mm Key pitch, Weighs in at 200 grams, Micro USB Charging-Black, Brown Box, 1-year Limited warranty
The Sony Cleopatra branded BKB10 Ultra Slim Bluetooth and NFC Wireless Keyboard for Your Smartphone Or Tablet are clearly geared towards portability. It's comfortably smaller in width and depth than a sheet of A4 paper, it's just 5 mm thin (the actual dimensions are 260 x 135 x 5 mm), and it weighs in at 200 grams. This can easily be accommodated in a flight bag or briefcase, and it would probably slip into many handbag designs with ease.
Sony has managed to find a good compromise between designing a keyboard that allows you to type 1000 word blog posts without feeling too tired, and to provide a keyboard that is small and light enough that you will be happy carrying it with you so you have it when you need it.
Charging through a micro USB cable means your phone charger can pull double duty when traveling. Sony rates the keyboard life as 'up to three months', although that will be dependent on how long you use it for each day.
There is a very small power switch, and a blue LED to show the connectivity and power status of the keyboard. Rubber pads are provided on the base of the keyboard to prevent it slipping on a flat surface, and small rubber pads are also on the top of the keyboard so if it is turned upside down, none of the main keys would be accidentally pressed.
Sony has not restricted the keyboard to pairing with just Sony devices, so the keyboard will happily work with a wide range of smartphones, tablets, and even desk-bound computers (Bluetooth dongle is required not included).
This isn't the keyboard to replace the keyboard in your office, but if you are looking for a solution that works well while you are on the move, then the BKB10 should be on your list for consideration. It's large enough you can use all your fingers, but small enough to be easily transported and not left at home.
