Product Review: AVS GEAR Zippy BT-637

Thinking about using your iPad to take notes in school, but mourning the small keypad? You might want to enter our July contest to win the Zippy BT-637 keyboard by AVS GEAR.

AVS GEAR premiered the wireless bluetooth keyboard with touchpad in April for students and others looking to utilize a keyboard with multiple devices. The keyboard allows you to sync up to six devices and can be used with Web TV, tablets, gaming consoles and desktop computers. The built-in touchpad really helps you save space in the crowded dorms.

I tested the model we’ll be giving away at the end of July (in this Facebook contest),. with my iMac and it worked as well as my Mac keyboard. It is the same size as a standard keyboard and also has several Web shortcut buttons (like home and volume controls) on the side. It takes two double-A batteries and also has a button to show when the battery needs to be changed. It is small enough to fit in a laptop bag for your traveling convenience.

What’s your favorite wireless keyboard? Have you ever used bluetooth desktop accessories? Share your comments below.
