    Keyboard Unknown Keys

    First off, connectivity and useability are great! I really like it also when I use it with my PS3! Only hickups are: I do not know how to use these keys? "Control, Symbol and the first key on the upper-left corner"edx0edx0 Finally, I don't seem to be able to enter french characters as I am able to from the soft-keyboard by holding down the letter and choosing the right accent...

    Just a keyboard

    This is a really basic keyboard. It has a couple of buttons that are specific for Touchpad (the cards one is really interesting), and multimedia options. It is really easy to set up and you can have it up and running in seconds. Now, the keyboard is just a keyboard. No mouse option at all, you will need to keep using your hand to click on the screen (the Web pages won't even scroll down if you click the down button; when typing an URL, the list of visited URLs will be displayed, but pressing the up/down button won't let you move among them). Sometimes there is lag, and it goes a bit slow (but not often, to be honest). Apart from QuickOffice there aren't much apps that needs the use of keyboard (this and the first con is something that could be fix by "software", either by updates or new apps). As I said at the beginning, it is a really basic keyboard. Personally, for me the cons are bigger than the pros, I thought it would work better integrated to the Touchpad, but in the end it is just that: a bluetooth keyboard..

    Solid keyboard, but poor on/off design

    This is a solid, well made keyboard. Unlike many other tablet keyboards, it is full-sized and includes a "shift" key on the right side. It has a solid feel and I can type comfortably with it. There are also some handy extra keys to do things like show/dismiss notifications, switch to card view, and adjust brightness and volume. My only complaint with features is that it is not transportable for mobile use. A case or folding design would have been a great plus. HP did many things well with this keyboard, but it baffles me that they placed the on/off switch in a hard-to-reach location underneath and didn't provide any LED indication of whether the keyboard is powered on or not. Plus, there is not even a marking on the underside as to which switch position is "on" and "off." They claim a 12-month battery life so maybe the intent is to never turn it off? The owner's manual does not say. It uses standard AA batteries so maybe I'll give it a try. Fix the power on/off design and this keyboard is a winner. In the meantime, bring lots of spare AA batteries.

    Great Design. More function coming

    Extremely well designed keyboard. Solid feel. Perfect size. HP is planning on adding more functionality with an OTA update to the TouchPad that should further minimize the number of times you need to go to the screen, vs. making selections from the keyboard. Once they do that, this is a perfect companion along with a MUST HAVE TouchStone Charging Dock. If you aren't sure, buy the TouchStone first. This is a "nice to have" secondary option. Regarding the power button issue noted by the other reviewer, you turn the keyboard on and off with the power button direction above the Delete Key. Very simple. The button that reviewer was referring to is the switch used to PAIR the keyboard with the TouchPad. You only need to do that once, so the switch design is just fine. Keyboard has a great feel, with no flex. Let me move around between cards and Launcher tabs with the arrow and tab keys and it is almost perfect.

    Bluetooth keyboard rocks!

    I've looked at and used a variety of compact Bluetooth keyboards and they all have their pros and cons. This HP keyboard was designed to be used with the now defunct touchpad but it works with most others (including the zoom on which I'm crafting this). Obviously some of the specialized function keys won't have corresponding applications, but that's not a deal breaker. PRO'S: Rugged construction, nice keyboard, nice feel, appropriately angled, pairs easily with BT devices and maintains a solid connection, CON'S: Batteries are a bit difficult to access, less compact than other keyboards, remote and flimsy on/off switch, documentation is poor (would like to re-map special function keys) Considering that HP is liquidating much of their business this keyboard can be had for less than half the price of competing products. Overall, it's a good value.

    Very nice addition to the TouchPad

    This Bluetooth keyboard is a great addition to the TouchPad. It can also be used with other devices like phones and computers. You have to allow for a few keys to do functions other than what they are labeled, but it does work. One of the big advantages of using the physical keyboard over the on-screen one is the ability to move the text insertion point around with the arrow keys. It is much easier than the on-screen positioning techniques. The tactical feedback is similar to that of most notebook PC keyboards, which is quite nice. The size of the keys is about identical to that of a notebook PC as well. It has a special key for turning the TouchPad on and off as well as one for putting the active app into card view. It has several keys for adjusting brightness, sound level, music controls, etc. I am very happy I purchased this keyboard.

    HP Touchpad Keyboard

    This keyboard seems to attract negative reviews so I will begin with the positive: The layout on this keyboard is awesome. You have a full-sized keyboard and for folks like my dad, who types by pecking, it is a better option than the on-screen one. The additional keys such as sleep, cards, etc...reflect great thought and execution by HP. It connects easily and readily to the TP with no problems. I use mine at work to type my endless emails that I have to send. The on-screen keyboard tends to be a bit cumbersome and more of a workout if I really get into an email intensive day. Now for the bad...and this is pretty much the only bad you will find: You cannot scroll with the keyboard or have any cursor control such as movement among cards or selections...this is a deficiency but I find it hardly a fact that destroys this hardware...many have posted here and in forums that they have returned it and complained loudly at how incapable it is...This is a keyboard for a TABLET not a laptop or desktop computer and it will have it´s limitations just as a tablet would. I think it does an excellent job for what it was intended and hopefully HP can fine tune some issues with a firmware upgrade..3.03 or maybe 3.04???

    Does what it needs to do

    I was pretty excited while unpacking this and using it for the first few times, however I have become less excited for a few reasons over the last few days. One, It's a keyboard... big whoop. Works perfectly with my Touchpad and does what it needs to do. Two, it fell from my lap when I moved a bit and fell to the floor, popping off two keys in the process. No big deal I thought. One of the keys popped back on in no time, the second key refuses to stay on. I no longer have a left arrow. You'd think that a fall from 2-3 feet, or however tall our couch is, would not cause it to break a key, but it may have just been bad luck on my part. Overall it does what it needs to do and works very nicely not just with my Touchpad but for other things like my PS3 as well.

    Good Keyboard for iPad

    I am using this Keyboard with my iPad 2 and it works very well. It has a nice touch and feel. The keyboard itself has a sturdy feel to it, not cheap at all, which I find is problem with keyboards. Set up went very well, but not perfect. When it first tried to attach the iPad showed that it was an HP but it failed, but as soon as I clicked the device name in the system window it tried again and responded by asking me to enter data from the keyboard. From that point on it worked great. 2 - minor issues - One, there is no on/off indicator, there is a switch but no light or indicator saying on/off (at least none that I can see) so I have to guess. Second - no documentation on the special keys at the top of keyboard. But I really like it and would recommend it.

    great, but....

    This is a very nice compact, lightweight, Bluetooth keyboard made specifically for the TouchPad. As such, it has dedicated keys for TP functions like Card View, plus volume and play/pause/>/< buttons. Keys feel fine to me and fit my fingers well. My complaint, as others have mentioned, is the on/off switch has no label or indicator light to tell whether it is on or off. I solved this with my label maker, but at the price I shouldn't have to. The other need for improvement I see is with the webOS software rather than the keyboard (I think) - having better functionality from the arrow keys. In card view I should be able to use them to move between cards without touching the screen but it doesn't work that way.
