Tablets are a must-have item right now, but making the leap to a virtual touchscreen keyboard will not suit everyone. If you’re struggling to get used to it, or you want to be able to do some serious work on your tablet, then you should really invest in a Bluetooth keyboard. It offers you a solid physical QWERTY keyboard for a great typing experience and it can pair with your tablet wirelessly.

There are loads of Bluetooth keyboards to choose from, but this model from Anker hits that sweet spot in terms of value for money, usability, and portability. It is a slim, compact keyboard, but the full QWERTY layout is there, along with dedicated function keys. It is very easy to pair and it will work with the iPad or an Android tablet, as well as Bluetooth enabled laptops and computers, not to mention the iPhone or Android smartphones.
It has a nice stylish, understated look and you’ll be able to slide into your bag and go off on your travels without a problem. It takes two AA batteries so recharging is never a concern and you don’t need a power outlet. It also has a clever automatic sleep function to conserve that battery life. The design is ergonomic and tilts forward to reduce wrist strain when you type. The keys have a nice action and they are well-spaced so typing is comfortable and accurate. This is one tablet accessory you will not regret buying and with an R.R.P of $50, currently reduced to $24, it’s not expensive either.
