Although smartphones and tablets have their touch keyboards, if you want to write longer texts, it can often be a stressful affair(especially if you have sausage fingers like I do). So now there is an increasing number of external devices available on the market, designed to make typing easier. A particularly practical model is Logitech’s Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480 ($45).
The special thing about this keyboard is that it can connect with your computer, but also with your tablet and smartphone. Featuring a simple wheel dial, it allows you to switch between 3 connected Bluetooth wireless devices, so you can quickly reply to a WhatsApp message and go right back to typing on your PC, for example. Conveniently, above the keypad there’s an integrated cradle for holding a phone or tablet (or both simultaneously) at a comfortable angle for reading. The Logitech K480 is available in black or white, works with 2 (included) AAA batteries, and has a full-size familiar layout with shortcut keys for Windows, Mac or Chrome computers, as well as Android and iOS mobile devices.
