Showing 1-10 of 10

Conclusion: But where the Lenovo device feels a bit flimsy, the Wedge Mobile Keyboard is very solid. Just know that that sturdy feel will come at the cost of a slightly heavier bag. The Wedge Mobile Keyboard and the cover/stand together weigh an even pound. We wouldn't exactly call that heavy, but it's pretty substantial for a mobile keyboard, especially when entire Windows 8 tablets, such as Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet 2, weigh less than half a pound more.
Pros: Striking industrial design, Looks and feels sturdy, Includes Windows 8 shortcut keys
Cons: A bit heavy, Shortcut keys make it Windows-centric, although keyboard does work with Android and Apple devices, Keys feel slightly cramped
Excerpt: The Wedge Mobile Keyboard is petite, but built to last. In use the plastic scrabble-tile keys give a satisfying clunk, but feel sturdy enough to take a hammering. It's a thin, lightweight sliver of silver and black, metal and plastic. Lay it next to a 10in tablet and the Wedge Mobile Keyboard is less than half the width, whilst taking up just a proportion of the thickness.
Conclusion: While the typing experience on the Wedge may not rival the comfort of a premium desktop keyboard, the Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard is a sound and highly portable option for tablet users. Add in the Windows 8 controls, simple Bluetooth connectivity, and the cover that doubles as a tablet stand, and you've got a mobile keyboard which is nicely suited to your new Windows 8 slate.
Pros: Highly portable, Bluetooth connectivity, Windows 8-specific function keys, Cover doubles as a tablet stand
Cons: Rather cramped key layout, Not ideal for longer typing sessions
Excerpt: Along with the Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse , the Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard has been released in preparation for Windows 8 . It doesn't have a design as divisive as the Wedge Touch Mouse, but it complements it with the same black and silver colour scheme.
Excerpt: Microsoft hardware goes one of two ways: it's either mind-blowingly good, or something that isn't fit to keep a door open on a windy day. Keyboards are no exception, and when you find a good Microsoft keyboard, it will be with you for a long time. Our last one, for example, only got retired because there are no longer PS2 ports on computers and we fancied going wireless.
Pros: Great design, ideal for media centre PCs, cover makes a great tablet stand
Cons: Fairly hard to type on, almost unbelievably expensive,
TEST: Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard - Tastatur til Windows-nettbrett
7 January 2013
Excerpt: Med Windows 8 viser Microsoft at de endelig mener alvor med nettbrett og tavle-pc-er. Det nye operativsystemet er vel så godt, om ikke bedre, tilrettelagt for nettbrett og berøringsskjerm, som for vanlige pc-er. Så har da selskapet selv, for første gang, lansert egne maskiner som kjører Windows.
Pros: Stilig design. Behagelig i bruk. Enkelt å sette opp. Bred støtte for operativsystemer. Smart deksel.
Handig en mooi mobiel toetsenbord met een te stevig prijskaartje

Summary: Het Wedge Mobile Keyboard is handig onderweg, mooi en stevig en de cover die ook als standaard voor een tablet kan dienen is een briljante uitvinding. Maar aan dit moois hangt wel een duur prijskaartje vast. Dit mobiele Bluetooth-toetsenbord kost immers net geen 80 euro en dat vinden wij te veel. Vooral ook omdat de Amerikanen er 80 voor betalen, ofwel bijna 28% minder dan wij Europeanen. Daarom trekken we een halve ster af.
