This turned out to be smaller than I expected, but I suppose I should have realized that. It's closer to the size of a cell-phone than a tablet, so although you can't type on it like a netbook's keyboard you can at least hold it comfortably in your hand and comfortably 'thumb type'.

The keys are a nice rubber and the case feels solid enough in spite of being ultra-slim. I was surprised, however, that there was no page up or page down anywhere on the keyboard. I also found that the question mark didn't work on a second non-playbook linux device I tried.

The charging light didn't come on unless I jiggled the cable that came with it, and the button to start polling is a pain to press. If you bite your nails you'll be trying to press it with the end of a spoon.

Whenever my Playbook went to sleep the connection would be lost but I haven't tried to reproduce this on another device.

It's not a huge improvement over the touchscreen keyboard, but it's a faster, easier to correct mistakes, and while this is connected the Plabook doesn't pop-up the on-screen keyboard.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mini Keyboard Jan. 6 2012
I ordered this product and although it took a couple weeks to come in, the customer service was good in returning emails inquiring about the product status as the tracking info was not available. When i received it i was a little surprised to see how "mini" this keyboard was. It is no bigger than my iPhone and for some may work well, but I was a little unsatisfied. It also has a slow response when trying to type while on the web or through messages, it can get a little frustrating! It may be good for those looking for something small, and is cheaper compared to the more expensive bluetooth keyboard out there!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great product! Dec 16 2011
I just received my HS Mini Keyboard and was amazed by this little gadget. perfect size to drop in your pocket and very versitle with many more key functions then I thought. The item itself was quick to charge and easy to use. Great for texting or typing. I would recommend to anyone looking for a bluetooth keyboard to use with their playbook or tablet to look at and compare this item. Highly recommended for someone who is on the go like myself.
