Ease of Use
Built-in Rechargeable Battery
Retains Signal Strength
The NUU MiniKeyconserves battery life by breaking the BT connection to the keyboard when it is left idle for ten minutes. When idle simply slide out the keyboard to wake the NUU MiniKeyand reconnect the devices.
The MiniKeyhas its own separate power source, so it won’t drain your iPhonebattery! The built-in rechargeable battery connects with an included micro-USB cable. A status LED shows you when the keyboard is charging or low on power.
The MiniKey’scase features a series of carefully-positioned metal springs that connect your iPhoneantenna to the case’s metal backing, allowing it to become one with the antenna. This connection compensates for the reduction in signal strength so common tootherproducts on the market. The springs are flexible and will not scratch your iPhonecasing.
Top Customer Reviews
1. the keys sound like a clicker used by airbourne troops in WW2 often mistaken for a bolt action rifle.
2. The key action is very stiff even after several hrs usage.
3. The flip action whilst smooth appears to be very flimsy - I would not want to drop it whilst open ...which can happen!
4. It operates absolutely nothing else on the iPhone - if it does do anything else it's well hidden - all it does it type ( and very loudly to boot ) and for the price I would have expected more ... oh dear !
one plus - it does have back lighting on the keys - but I think I would rather have had a smoother quieter key action
so, keep your money and either get a cheaper one or plumb for the other keyboard which is slightly cheaper but appears to have more flexibility ...
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
This one, I LOVE!
+ Key layout is as it should be. Space bar is centered, the letter G is above V and not B like the other iPhone keyboards I've seen.
+ The iPhone fits flush inside of it.
+ It's easy to remove the phone from the case if you ever need to, but not too easy so that the phone just falls out of the case on it's own.
+ Syncing is easy. You just press and hold the button right on the front, and only have to sync it once.
+ The keyboard backlight is optional. Turn it on and off with the switch on the front.
+ Doesn't seem to have any significant drain on the phones battery.
+ Charged the keyboard when I got it a week ago and still not in need of recharging.
+ Rubber texturized so it doesn't slip and slide all over the place.
+ Solid build. No fragile feel to the keys or the case.
+ Keyboard activates within a second of sliding open.
- Backlight takes about 3 seconds to activate upon sliding open.
+/- It does add significant weight and thickness, but I'm used to a heavier phone so I like it.
- Auto-complete and auto capitalization can't be activated while the keyboard is active.
Any questions feel free to ask.
very easy to setup
thickness does not bother me
I like some of the Nuu keyboard user features better that the IP4's keyboard.
It works seamlessly with the IP so i can use the touch screen as well, at any point.
Much easier for me to type with my thumbs/two hands.
I like the feel of the backside of the keyboard panel.
Sentences and "I" don't seem to autocap.
I don't !ove the spacebar location, it needs to be either bigger or more to the right for my liking.
Overall: I like it, I'm glad I got it and I would recommend it.
Yes this case makes the iPhone thick (it is almost a full 20mm with the iPhone in it), and I will have to look around for a suitable leather pouch / case for it (it would have been better if it had a clip for me to use on my belt, but that's just my preference), but the slider mechanism is smooth enough (not as silky 'solid' as the Torch but nice nonetheless). Being able to crank out emails on a real keyboard is a joy - much more productive when I can give a comprehensive answer to a simple email request without resorting to one more thing I've got to take care of when I'm back at the office. (I'm a field employee so having the ability to type on the go is very important.) There is some adjustment needed to the keyboard layout, I miss the right shift-key as well as the spacebar could be a tad longer as I feel it doesn't extend far enough to the right, but it is nice to have a full complement of symbols accessed through cmd-key combinations, and the symbols are clearly marked, unlike the BB where a 'sym' key took you to another full screen to tap. For someone who uses symbols like %, & and = with some regularity (who doesn't?) this is very helpful to have.
I was tempted by purchasing from another vendor (not on Amazon) who had their own twist-style keyboard, but I like the slider function better, even though it is landscape orientation compared to my prior experiences with Blackberries (I've lost count how many BB's I've had, must have been at least five starting out with a black-and-white email-only unit back in the dark ages of 2002 or so.) Playing around with the iOS apps now I see (belatedly) what all the fuss is about, from the consumer perspective, and now I can rightly say that this keyboard makes the iPhone useful for getting work done on the smartphone itself. (That is, until speech-to-text applications get a huge advance in capability and accuracy making the keyboard obsolete, which may take several more years...)
It's a keeper, and one I'd recommend.
I found this leather case: Black Horizontal Leather Pouch for Sidekick 2 3 LX. [...] on Amazon, and while it is about 1/4-inch longer than the iPhone/Nuu Minikeyboard unit, it is the perfect depth. Strong magnetic flap and nice strong 'clip' that doesn't fall off my belt. (Okay I'm used to having something hang off my belt as an old-timer BlackBerry user.)
Honestly, I'm having a hard time believing some of these 5 star reviews that mention the thickness of the case being the biggest issue. The biggest issue is that the keyboard is unresponsive and lacks the texture of a blackberry keyboard. The keys themselves are very flat and they all feel the same. Maybe it was just the one they sent me but my "t" button required twice as much pressure as most of the other keys while my "h" key was twice as sensitive. This led to many spelling errors which weren't corrected by auto correct since this device isn't compatible with auto correct. Also, it's worth noting that prior to trying this keyboard I've had auto correct off since its typically ridiculous with its corrections, but I tried to turn it on since I was making so many mistakes with the Nuu K1.
Auto correct is not compatible with this case.
Another annoyance was the first letter of my texts was not auto capitalized. So I'd have to press the shift button before typing any text.
Auto caps is not compatible with this case.
Thats pretty much when I realized that this keyboard isn't saving me any time like I thought it would. I'm spending more time capitalizing, punctuating, and spell checking than if I was using the iPhone's touchscreen. And I'm no grammar nazi. I use the occasional "lol" and "idk" but I also like to have the ability to send professional texts efficiently.
I'm sure this review will conveniently buried as unhelpful, but come on, no one should be buying these cases right now. This case is about $60 right now. Even if it were $20 I would say don't buy it. You're supporting mediocrity. Vote with your money.
