It is about the same size as the Apple bluetooth keyboard, which is great for portability or for a media server. It pairs easily with both the iPad and the Mini by simply typing in the key code displayed on the screen.
The HP special function acts as the Apple special key, and the audio buttons also work with the Mini. I picked this up for about $40, and am very pleased with the purchase.
+ Nice to type on, just feels good.
+ Battery life is reported to be very good lasting about 6 months.
+ When it comes down to writing something extensive, using a onscreen keyboard just won't cut it. The wireless keyboard extends the usefulness of the TouchPad, so you can use it for emailing, blogging, chatting, and reviewing products on Amazon.
+ webOS specific keys to control volume, playback, searching, check notifications, and brightness.
- Software is buggy. Not the keyboard's fault, but sometimes the caps lock key is stuck. To fix it, I just press a combination of shift, caps lock, uncaps lock
- Battery case is kinda hard to figure out
- Arrow keys don't work. Again, a webOS issue, not the keyboard.
The keyboard is pretty good for a thin "chiclet" style. The keys have more throw than I expected (a good thing).
Two issues that are just bad product design. Neither detract too much for the keyboard, but should be addressed in further revs.
1 - It would be simple to put an arrow on the battery door. Currently there is no hint as to how to put in the batteries without reading the instructions. That is fine. What happens in 6 months when the batteries die and you don't have the instructions? This is a simple thing that would have made the instant experience better and eliminate annoyances in the future.
2 - The power button has a very subtle difference as to on and off. Only visible in good lighting. Again, a 1/0 addition to the battery cover could help this, but it is another usability fail. A product should be usable without reading anything, when it is this simple.
The keyboard connects rapidly when turning on and works well. Other than the few design misses, it is a solid keyboard.

Feels very nice to type on does not click obnoxiously loud
Nice black aluminum keyboard
Feels very sturdy
Easy to pair with both my Android and computer (when trying to pair you have to type the numbers and press return on the keyboard)
The batteries came with the keyboard
There is very minimal delay if at all
I can afford it
No number pad
I have to re-pair the devices (like remove them and then re add) if I'm switching between devices but it's not that big of a problem at all
The arrow keys are kind of funny but it's just so that all the keys can fit on the keyboard
There's no light to tell whether or not Caps Lock is on
If I hadn't read some of the reviews I would not have known how to remove the battery cover without some time
If it's been idle for a while you need to type a couple of letters to turn the keyboard back on
The light indicating whether the keyboard is on or not is very subtle
ALT key is the Symbol key
The top left little messenger button is the ESC key
Android (Samsung Infuse):
The top left little messenger button is the back key
I don't have to touch the screen at all if it's already unlocked to send a text which is the biggest reason why I got this keyboard cause some of the texts I send are received in 7 texts
If you have the screen lock completely removed (as in when you press the power button and it goes straight to your home screen) then you can turn the screen on by either pressing the arrow keys or the top left messenger button
The return key is like the Tab key on computers as it goes to the next text field or button the Tab key will actually insert a tab in whatever text field you're in not skip to the next text field
I'm using it for my pc, and I miss a lot of the buttons that a full keyboard had. But think of this as a minimalist keyboard. you sacrifice some functionality for comfort. Now my typing hands are actually centered instead of off to the left, and I can fit my mouse and mouse pad to the right. I plan on getting a wireless numberpad to go along with this, in case I need to do intense number crunching.
Now I want to address the functionality issues. There's no F1-F12, no delete, insert, home, end, page up, page down, numberpad, and the brightness and forward/backward song keys don't work on a pc. In fact, the only keys that work on the top row are sound off, volume up and down, stop music. But there's an easy way to deal with this. (Btw, escape is the msg key, alt is the symbol key, windows key is the card key) Use the programs Sharpkeys and Autohotkey to remap certain keys and hotkeys. Sharpkey edits the registry so it doesn't need to be started every time. I remapped capslock to control, backspace to delete (now you can ctrl-alt-delete!), right shift to backspace, and right control to right shift. This is just my personal settings that are comfortable for me. For autohotkey, it takes a bit of coding but forums can help you out there.Read more ›
