ZaggKeys Flex full review
If you want the flexibility of a tablet with the more traditional professional functionality of a laptop the Zaggkeys Flex offers the best of both worlds in a neat little package.
The Zaggkeys Flex is a wonderful Bluetooth 3.0 keyboard that is a breeze to connect to your Apple iPad or Android tablet – even with the iPhone or other smartphones. Its cover easily snaps into a handy tablet or smartphone stand.
The keyboard is smaller than the Apple-built Wireless Keyboard or iPad Keyboard Dock or larger non-Apple alternatives for Android devices. But it doesn’t feel cramped, and is akin to a 10-inch netbook’s keyboard.
Better still it includes special function keys for tablets – some iOS (iPad or iPhone) or Android specific.
