Your Tablet Needs a Keyboard

Posted by Hooch Tan in "Laptop Thoughts News" @ 09:00 AM

"Logitech’s Tablet Keyboard comes in two versions; one for the iPad and one for Android 3.0+ slates. Same price — $69.99 — slightly different hotkeys for the different operating systems. I used the Android model for a week and a half for writing everything from short emails to long blog posts. Is this accessory worth your time and money?"

Tablets are great portable computing devices, but some find that software keyboards lacking. The solution is, of course, a keyboard! Why limit a tablet to a simple slate like device when you can add on things like a keyboard, or even a hardware pointing device! Still, there are times when a hardware keyboard is faster or easier for a lot of people though it does add one more thing to put in your bag. Thankfully, you do not have to take it out all the time, and use the lean, trim slate as it was meant to be. The only real compromise I can see is that using this keyboard can only be used in a situation where you have access to a flat surface.

Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N550: Bigger Than A Breadbox, er, Netbook

"Look at this thing, now scope out Logitech's Speaker Lapdesk N700 and come back to tell us the difference between the two. Not that we'd ever dare question the sanity of having two Speaker Lapdesk SKUs, but you've got to admit Logitech hasn't really differentiated its new N550 -- a two-speaker, heat-shielded pad for treating your thighs with more kindness and less calefaction -- from its admittedly pricier predecessor."

Another in a long list of interesting laptop accessories, this lapdesk somewhat defeats the purpose of having a small, portable netbook. It's big. As a desk accessory, fine, it raises the typing angle of the netbook or laptop, provides reasonable speakers, and keeps the computer from sliding around. On the lap, it helps avoid a direct scalding, and provides a stable platform. But, really, does anyone buy a netbook with the expectation of it producing great sound? Portability, basic computing, and long battery life, please!
