Very nice Bluetooth keyboard for the Kindle Fire HD,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AmazonBasics Bluetooth Keyboard for Android Devices - Black (Accessory)
I waited to get this keyboard until I did a little bit of research, and I think that made all the difference. In the time it took me to do the research, Amazon had pushed out an update that fixed the Bluetooth problem the keyboard had been having. A lot of the one-star reviews are from people who bought the keyboard when this problem hadn't been solved yet.
The keyboard itself has all the keys you'd expect: alphanumeric keys, up, down, left and right keys, and a few extra, like keys for the volume and a Home key that actually takes you to the carousel screen. However, there are a few curious omissions:
1) No Page Up or Page Down
2) No Delete key. (There's a Backspace key, but that's not the same thing.)
The keys are well-spaced and it's not a problem touch typing on the keyboard. It's certainly not as spacious as a full-sized keyboard, but it's about the size of a keyboard on a smallish laptop.
The one thing they could add that might make this keyboard close to perfect is a way to carry it. It's a perfect portable size, but it's not something I would want to store in a backpack. I will probably keep the box it came in for travel purposes.

This key combination does not work in Windows based computers that have Bluetooth.
