The Wedge mobile keyboard is an ideal balance between form and function. It has a minimalist design, yet incorporates a large-sized keyset, Windows 8 hotkeys and cover that converts into a tablet stand so you can get more done in more places.

The bendable cover/stand works great as well although the rubber material its made of is very good at attracting dust and dirt if its in a bag.
I wish it could remember multiple device pairings as well but overall a great product.
I use it with a Samsung Windows 8 tablet to turn it into from a very portable hand held device into a very usable desktop station for work.
The mobile keyboard is part of Microsoft's 'Wedge' range, which also includes a similar-looking mouse. It comes in a nice, tough cardboard box with a flip-opening lid that also houses the keyboard's hard rubber cover and some manuals. Once out of its box, you can see that some thought has gone into it, with a very thin profile and a chrome band extending right around the edge to help break up the black of the keys and the back-plate. It's also very solid, with not even the keys rattling as I might have expected them to. In fact, the only unwanted protrusion is the battery pack / stand on the back, which sticks out awkwardly but does at least serve to prop up the keyboard at a better angle. It doesn't bend in the middle, as you might think from some of the photos, so it isn't quite as portable as some mobile keyboards, but you'd have no problem stashing it in a rucksack or handbag with little problem.
The keyboard isn't rechargeable, instead relying on two AAA batteries for its power; it also doesn't have any USB ports, so if you run out of batteries while you're on the move then you're pretty much sunk. Nicely, though, the included cover switches the keyboard off when the two are in contact.Read more ›
This means that as a typing platform, it is very good and doesn't flex at all. The keys are tightly fitted into the allocated space and are about the same size as the keys on many full-size keyboards and I find it relatively easy to type fast despite the diminutive size of the keyboard itself. There is a good tactile response that I would be happy to see on a lot of laptops, and it is a far superior keyboard to the onscreen keyboard of any tablet.
I use it as a companion to the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and it works very well, providing a keyboard that can be physically separated by some distance unlike the Surface keyboard/cover which has to be attached to the screen. The Bluetooth connection appears stable and I have not experienced any drop-outs.
if I wanted to say anything negative then I would say that the rubber cover is a bit excessive for my needs, however you might find it useful if you need to use it as a stand for your tablet. (The Surface has a built-in stand.) Having said that, I have used the cover as a stand for my ipad and it is secure and unobtrusive.
This product is quite unique in that it is small enough to go with my laptop, this does not mean it is too small for typing. I think it is the perfect size to ensure good typing speeds for most people. The keys have a lovely feel when depressed, which makes typing a breeze. I have noticed my typing errors have been reduced when using this keyboard, when compared to using my Ultrabook's keyboard. It runs off 2 AAA batteries which adds virtually nothing to the weight. The required batteries are included in the box. It is fully featured as you can control so many things from it, such as the opening of Outlook Express, computer sound levels, Windows Start button and the list goes on and on.
The set up is easy but I do not like the Bluetooth connectivity system. If the keyboard is inactive for about 3 minutes the Bluetooth gets disconnected and you have to reset the connection. I prefer the full size Anker Solar keyboard as the connection problems are a pain.
This is a super quality product but I really do not like the connectivity issues. If this is not an issue for you I can happily recommend this product.
