    JAVOedge Bluetooth Keyboard

    Bottom Line: Those who are tired of tapping away on their screens or keypads should definitely give this keyboard a look. The Bluetooth keyboard is a fine compliment to your Bluetooth-enabled PDA or phone. But what about price and performance.......

    Design

    The JAVOedge Bluetooth keyboard comes folded inside a protective silver and black shell. The shiny silver finish is just a little bit glitzy, and though it is far from being a fashion statement, it is not dorky either.

    The case itself is surprisingly sturdy, suggesting a product designed with some level of durability in mind. A sliding switch releases the lock and unfolds the two halves of the keyboard and four rubber grips prevent unwanted sliding.

    The jet-black interior of the keyboard contains a rather flimsy battery hatch, a power switch, an LED, and (obviously) the keys, 63 to be exact. Upon opening the keyboard, half of the keys will be on the left and the other half will be on the right. To make the keys flush with each other, JAVOedge has included a slider on the left side of the keyboard; just move the slider and the left side will align itself with the right. Unfortunately, the sliding action is rough and the slider sometimes gets stuck, prompting me at times to simply say "screw it," and then to push the left side over manually with my hand.





    A tug on the upper right part of the keyboard brings out a metal stand for your handheld. You place your PDA or smart phone directly on the stand when you need it, and when you do not, simply slide it back into its compartment. My gripe is that the stand only works when my PDA is in portrait mode; support for landscape mode would have been even more convenient.
