FN to type a number and FN+shift to type a symbol too bothersome indeed. Laser keyboard is the one projected on a flat surface right? I find the effect cool but overall not user friendly.

Yea you got it. I was taken by how cool the laser keyboard was and I bought one from think geek for like $200 when they were new in like 2005. Big waste of money.

That reminds me of one of the things I love about the Microsoft BT keyboard... the separate dedicated number that is about the size of a calculator.


yes thats true. I sometimes forget to press the fn key off ater entering numbers or symbols, and end up typing out a garbage mixture of numbers in my sentances.

Only reason I use Su-8w is beause I already had it from years back for my nokia s60 phone, plus it is one of the most compact foldaway bluetooth keyboards with descent sied keys for touch typing. Other folding portable bluetooth keyboard s with separate numerical keys have smaller keys.

I really like the very compact Apple Bluetooth Keyboard which does work with windows and other OS . The key are to soft and you can use it the max distance from the room .

Nice find ... It's just on pre-order now, but it looks ideal .. a little more robust than the old iGo keyboard too.

I found my iGo keyboard works with the iPhone too ... so I have to keep re-configuring the iGo to each device (iPhone and UX) ... keep us posted when this item ships if you hear anything new

You can get a nice cheap one at best buys or circuit city. Or go to logitech.com for their awesome keyboards and mouse.
