It connects easily to my iPad and iPhone .

There are a couple of oddly sized keys on the keyboard but it just takes a little getting used to before you can fly through.

I don't recommend this keyboard unless one of its features is something you absolutely have to have.

I'm trying this keyboard out with my iPad. I have the Apple wireless keyboard and I really like it. But I saw this keyboard at Fry's Electronics this afternoon and thought I'd give it a try. I hope you won't mind me comparing the two, as the Apple keyboard is the predominant bluetooth keyboard for iOS devices. One thing that inspired me to check it out is the fact that the Verbatim keyboard folds up into a small package (about the size of a really thin paperback book). I have a nice simple case for my iPad (it's actually a netbook case) with a slip pouch on one side. This keyboard, when folded up, fits very nicely into that pouch and only adds just under 1" of thickness to the whole thing,which is pretty good, considering the iPad itself isn't thick at all. As much as I love the Apple wireless keyboard, there's no way I'm going to be able to tote it around in this case, much less in a coat pocket or something like that. So this keyboard's ability to fold up for extra portability is a big plus. By the way, there is a sliding switch that locks the keyboard so that the two halves don't inadvertently flip inward while typing on a less-than-solid surface.

I do agree with prior review comments regarding the differently-sized keys that are on each side of the keyboard split (particularly the "G" key being 1/3rd smaller than the "H" key next to it and the "B" key being a 1/3rd smaller than the "V" key next to it). I'm sure there's a reason for this but...looking at the keyboard carefully I can't figure it out. But it does feel a little weird. For the most part, the keys are basically the same size as those on the Apple wireless keyboard, although they're all right next to each other as opposed to the spacing between the Apple keyboard's keys.

I won't go into the pros and cons of this keyboard.

There are no directions for pairing with an Android device, so here are the steps:

In Android:
Turn on blue tooth.
Scan for devices.

Keyboard:
Turn on the keyboard.
Push the "Pair" button with a pen.

Android:
Select the keyboard.
It will ask for a 4 number password. Enter any 4 numbers.
Press OK

Keyboard:
Enter the same 4 number password you entered in Android.
Press Enter.

Also, this keyboard is nearly exactly the same as the "Freedom Pro Bluetooth Portable Folding Keyboard". It looks the same and has the same internal packaging. The only difference is that the Freedom keyboard has a switch to change from HID to SPP. From the directions, I gathered that SPP is for Blackberries. Also, the printing on the keys was different. Otherwise, they're twins. Oh, and the Freedom is thirty dollars more expensive. I bought both.

It is what it is, and works so far. I mean, its a bluetooth keyboard and pairs with my iPad, and the keys I press make it to the device. Its small, though not as small as I'd like. Don't get me wrong, its small, and folded it fits in more places, bit its thicker than my ipad and you really need a bag for it.

The fatal flaw I mentioned in the title is the keyboard layout. Its sort of laid out like a standard keyboard, and they tried to make up for its size by making the letter keys larger and the number and function keys smaller. Even so, the relative positions are off slightly from a standard keyboard, and not all the letter keys are the same size. The V key for instance is twice as wide and the adjacent B key. The 1 key is centered of the W, not slightly to the left of the Q, that's where the escape key is on this one. Also the tiny backspace and tab buttons throw me off and I find I often am hitting keys I don't intend. I have only used it for a few hours, but I still haven't gotten used to it. I can't seem to keep my fingers over the keys I expect them to be over and I find that even if I watch my hands while I type, its still a bit cumbersome. I am very familiar with typing on a keyboard, so this isn't a user-related problem.

Bottom line is that I got this for the tactile feedback of a real keyboard while using my iPad and trying to avoid sacrificing the portability. The reality is, that it is easier to type on the iPad than on this keyboard.

If I find I get used to it, or if I find it so unusable that I decide to return it, I'll come back and post an update.

**UPDATE** 8/12/2011
I couldn't get used to it. I returned it.

I've read several reviews and looked for other alternatives before purchasing this item. I usually check more often the negative reviews, cause they tend to be true when there's some consistency on the reviews.

There was nothing very bad for this item, so I decided to give it a shot, given it's not a high investment.

From the moment I opened the package, I was happy with the product. The packaging has a good presentation. The product just made it even better. Great material, sturdy and the good attention to detail.

The item also comes with a little travel bag to protect it, which is a nice touch.

Now for the keyboard functionality, usability, etc....

The keyboard is a full keyboard with some changes to accommodate the portable design. Top and bottom keys are smaller than the middle ones, but adaptation is not that hard. I have small hands, so it's hard for me to tell how good/bad it is if you have big hands.

I've been using this with my iPad and the bluetooth connection is almost instant. It pairs very fast, especially after the first pairing.

One very cool thing about the keyboard is the integration with iPad media keys, like volume, preview/next, play/pause and also a button that corresponds to the home button on the iPad.

The keyboard is like a laptop keyboard as far as touch and feel goes. And once you start getting used to it, adaptability is definitely not hard, especially if you know how to type fast. You might have to slow down a bit at the beginning, but nothing that would compromise performance.

Also, I don't really consider it a downside in the product, because there's not really much more you can do with limited, compact space. That's why I chose a small keyboard in the first place!
