Zagg Flex universal keyboard and stand pairs with tablets, smartphones, and even smart TVs
The self-described “global leader in accessories that empower mobile lifestyles” currently sells both tablet keyboards made exclusively for Apple’s latest iPads and universally compatible products like the newly unveiled Flex.
Priced at a very reasonable $69.99 (although currently listed for $79.99 on the company’s official website), the Zagg Flex universal keyboard and stand is slated for an expansion to “select” Verizon stores nationwide in “early September.”
A nifty protective cover can be easily folded into a stand allowing you to prop up your handset or slate at a convenient viewing angle. The stand is detachable for an extra touch of versatility, protecting the keyboard from scrapes and scratches when not in use.
The Zagg Flex is described as “lightweight” and “portable”, although no numbers are shared to support that statement. If you do want to hear an impressive number, how about two... years? Yup, this bad boy’s rechargeable battery can purportedly keep the lights on for up to 24 months without hugging a wall, as long as you limit your use to an average of an hour per day.
“Laptop-style” keys preventing typing errors by “minimizing the chances of accidentally hitting an adjacent key” and multi-pairing technology supporting two devices at once are also among the chief selling points of the flexible and inexpensive Zagg Flex. Who’s getting one?
