Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000 Review
8 July 2012
Summary: Priced at Rs. 3,350 in the Indian market, the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000 is a cheap alternative to turn your tablet into a notebook of sorts. The keyboard is highly functional and is very usable. We would have liked Microsoft to bundle a Bluetooth dongle which would’ve expanded the scope of the product by letting users use it with desktops. Still, the fix is easy – simply buy a Rs. 100 Bluetooth dongle for the PC.
Summary: At Rs. 3,500, the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000 isnï¿½t the cheapest wireless keyboard for your desktop or laptop but it is a good product if you decide to use it with multiple devices such as your tablet or smartphone as well. Just remember, it can only be connected to one device at a time.
Pros: Light weight, Compact design, Easy sync, Compatible with any Bluetooth device
Cons: Can only be connected to one device at a time, Form factor takes getting used to, No backlit
Conclusion: The Mobile Keyboard 5000 is a good piece of hardware. It plays nice with most Bluetooth devices, and is easy to carry. Having said that, the keyboard's arc-shaped design adds an unnecessary learning curve for users. However, if you can live with that, it makes for a good companion for your tablet.
Pros: Compact design; Great build quality; Good operational range; Easy to set up.
Cons: Takes time to get used to; Incompatible with Android 2.3 devices.
