IOGEAR Bluetooth keyboard toggles between 6 connected devices
Bluetooth keyboards are nothing new, but the ability to use the same one for all your devices can go along way to reducing clutter. The Multi-Link Bluetooth Mini Keyboard from IOGEAR allows you to connect to up to 6 devices at once, including your smartphone, tablet, PC, Mac, connected television, or Bluetooth-enabled game console.

Once you've connected to literally everything you could type on, you can then easily toggle between connections, allowing you to quickly switch from your computer in order to quickly write a lengthy text message. The keyboard includes the standard media shortcuts, but they unfortunately only work with Microsoft Windows Media Center.

The keyboard is highly portable, so it would make a great travel companion for your iPad when you're away from home. And the included pouch should keep it relatively protected. IOGEAR's Quiet Key Touch design will reportedly reduce typing noise to a "barely audible tap," so you won't disturb your travel companions.

The IOGEAR Multi-Link Bluetooth Mini Keyboard is available now. The press release lists the MSRP as US$99.95, but IOGEAR's website says $79.95.

I purchased an IO Gear keyboard with an attached mouse pad and it is awesome. I have my Xoom hooked up to my tv and use the keyboard to run the show. Its great that with the new 3.1 update it ahas improved Bluetooth capabilities. I can even see the mouse cursor. The keyboard was built for window's media, but some of the hotkeys work fine (ie search, back, home, etc). The keyboard was 70$ on Amazon, I recommend it to anyone looking t buy a quality Bluetooth keyboard.
