FAVI Mini Bluetooth Keyboard hands-on
With its pocket friendly size, we find that the FAVI Mini Bluetooth Keyboard is best used on the couch. Yes folks, you heard that right – the couch. Actually, we paired it up to a Motorola DROID RAZR HD, which we connected to a high-def television via its HDMI-out connection. Seeing that there’s a very useful built-in trackpad on the FAVI Mini Bluetooth Keyboard, we’re able to navigate through the UI of the phone with no issues at all. Also, it helps that there are left/right mouse buttons to ease the navigation too – especially paired to any Windows/Mac PC.
As for the typing experience, we really can’t complain about it, since the buttons are adequately sized for the pocket-size of the keyboard. Bubbled in the center of each button, there’s enough distinction between them – and that’s despite the fact they’re crunched up next to one another. At the same time, there’s a nice responsive click feel with every press. Showing off its usability, we also appreciate that there is a dedicated row for numbers, and another set for various media functions.
Finally, the FAVI Mini Bluetooth Keyboard is great for presentations as well because it’s also packing along a red laser pointer – so there’s plenty of fun with it. Rather than relying on usual replaceable batteries, it’s comforting to know it’s using a rechargeable one instead. And if you plan on using this with a PC, it’s great that the USB Bluetooth adapter is neatly tucked away into the body of the keyboard (where the battery is located) when it’s not in use. Honestly, for $50 you’ll need to fork over to pick this up, there’s plenty of value in the FAVI Mini Bluetooth Keyboard – plus, it’s a versatile tool!
