Sometimes an important email comes in at an odd time of day, and you’re not at your desk to respond to it. Of course, this means you’ll have to answer it on your phone, and should you accidentally hit send before it’s done or grammatically corrected, you could be facing some pretty serious regrets rather quickly. Using a dedicated keyboard for your phone would make things easier, but waiting for it to pair up, charge, or hook in could take too long.
This is the exact issue Elecom is trying to combat with the One2Touch portable keyboard. It works with the Android Near Field Communication IP-1 protocol, so you don’t need to do anything but put your phone on top of it for it to function. It has an internal battery that lasts up to 18 months, so you won’t need to worry about watching a battery bar. It is projected to retail for around $240, which includes a carrying case, but that’s still way too much if you ask me. This is only available in Japan at the moment, but there are talks to get it to the US and Europe as well.
