This black leather case with laptop-style keyboard is the perfect accessory for 8" Android tablets. This protective cover is multi-functional and lets you type just as you would with your laptop/netbook. This case is equipped with a full working keyboard, a stylus, pockets to hold up to 2 styluses, USB cable, and an extendable stand. Just plug the USB2.0 cable attached to the keyboard, right into your tablet and you're all set!

The fold-out 'prop' on the lid also works perfectly well and also has a magnetic clasp.
The keyboard really is very pleasing to use - feels nice and positive and doesn't seem
too small for my sausage-fingers.
I've taken off a star because the USB connector has to be 'stuffed along the back of the keyboard'
as best you can when closing the case. This is a bit awkward and feels like you're cramming it in
(which you are). The case does however stay closed when you do shut it all inside.
It came with a cheapo but perfectly functional stylus too!
A great product that does it's job more than well enough to justify what I think is a reasonable price. (about £).
The two adapters (well, the mini USB one is probably useless to you) are capable of functioning as OTG adapters on any other device - I don't know why most of the OTG adapters on the market are cables. This small block version is much more convenient IMHO.
I did find that enabling NumLock and CapsLock simultaneously sometimes makes the corresponding LED lights go haywire, but I can confirm that this is a flaw in Jelly Bean 4.1.1 (haven't tested other versions of Android, but I do know it's a problem which has plagued UNIX-like systems for a while) Rebooting the tablet sorted it out. Also, Android doesn't use the F1-F12 keys so you can always remap them to other keys (like back, home, volume, power, etc) by rooting your device and copying /system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl to /system/usr/keylayout/Vendor_0e8f_Product_0040.kl and then editing the file. It would be interesting if anyone else gets a different vendor/product iD...
The material is not leather but it looks fine and feels nice.
The USB connector is a full size one which is a nuisance when the Tablet is in place as it has no where to sit when the case is closed, so it has to flop around outside the case, which makes it a little on the easy side to get snagged on something, (* this is the reason for the loss of a star).
my tablet needs a micro USB connector so i needed an adapter to connect this up and the ones that came with this were not recognised by my tablet, although another tablet i tried did recognise the adapters so it is not the adapter that is broken. luckily, i can use the adapter that came with the tablet which works perfectly well.
The stand is useful for when this is sat on a table but not useful when it is on your lap as it falls right through the gap between the knees.
Also, it could do with a strap or something to stop it opening fully, holding it at a 90 degree angle or thereabouts.
but for the price, if you want to make your tablet seem more like a laptop, then you can't really go wrong.
As mentioned in previous reviews the delete button does not work. I contacted the seller who replied within 10 minutes, informing that the support team was in China and that they would deal with my request.
The team did reply however, their answer was comical. They suggested that if I like DIY I should carefully take apart the case and see if any dirt or debris was blocking the key or check on the internet for a fix. I do like DIY but I would never take apart a brand new item just to check if debris was stopping a key from depressing. As you can see from the pictures the case is stitched together and I am not about to undo all that stitching just to see if a bit of debris is inside.
The delete key not working is not a big hassle so I will live with it. The case has two metal clasps at the bottom to hold the tablet and a third spring mounted clasp to hold the top. The top clasp can be adjusted with a little bending to fit the tapered sides of the Momo8 so that the metal does not dig into the screen.
As you would expect using the keyboard does reduce the battery life some what but, I just remove it when I am not using it. Besides the delete key I can not fault it really and that is why I dropped off one star.
