Summary: A beautiful keyboard which if you get it for a deal is well worth it. I take it with me on vacation to use with my bluetooth tablet or phone. One could put a bluetooth adapter in a netbook and get a much more comfortable keyboard. I have not ever liked the Microsoft keyboards which were contoured and had a break in the middle between the G and the H. I learned typing in high school and those keyboards slow me down. This one fits the way your fingers would naturally sit.
Summary: It's a shame Bluetooth isn't allowed on airplanes as this would be an ideal travel keyboard. Much more comfortable, fast and accurate than the standard iPad keyboard. Occasionally takes a bit of fiddling to get it to connect. And it is so light it's easy to drop it. I need to use this for extended typing more often. It also works with my iPhone which is really cool!
Summary: I originally bought this to use with my HTC G2. I needed to add an Android app "BlueInput" to get it to work with that phone. I recently upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy Note II. The MS BT Mobile 6000 works like a charm with the Note II. No app needed, just pair up and go! I typed this review on my Note II, using the MS BT keyboard :-) I can't seem to get the Delete key to work, but if I highlight a section and hit backspace, I get the desired result.
Summary: Microsoft's Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 is---for me---an older BUT better product. I heartily recommend it for any typist who is not satisfied with small keyboards. To set things up, I simply went to the Ipad's Settings >> General >> Devices clicked the keyboard and entered the number offered. (Of course, the Bluetooth button above Devices needs to be on.) In practice, the keys fit my (big) touch-typist's fingers fine.
Summary: Have been looking for a good keyboard without a numeric keypad, but with the navigation keys. Haven't found one, but this is close. I have used the Microsoft Natural keyboard for several years and prefer it's curved layout. This keyboard has the same comfortable curve. I like the curve and the fact that the mouse is closer to my "home" typing position...saving shoulder strain.
Summary: The keyboard was smaller than I expected. I didn't realize it was portable. It works well. The only thing I don't like is the number of keys I need to press to get to the top or bottom of an excel spreadsheet.
Excerpt: I got this keyboard to use with my iPad, PS3, and my HTPC and it works quite well. I like having the option of utilizing a numpad whenever I want, thus decreasing the size of the keyboard and making it easy to place on your lap. I don't want to discuss why I didn't get a netbook if I got a keyboard for the iPad, but I sometimes need to use a keyboard, and I think this is a better solution than buying Apple's expensive keyboard + dock.
