Samsung Gets Patent for Multi Folding Tablet With Physical Keyboard

By Radu Iorga

Samsung received a fresh patent this week, one that involves the usual folding tablet, but this time with a twist: a physical keyboard. We’ve seen multiple foldable devices patented by Samsung, some linked to the Samsung Galaxy X project, others not. But the keyboard is a new approach….

Sammy already has a multi fold patent under its belt ever since September 2016. This time it gets a patent for a next gen device, that folds its keyboard below the screen part, at the back side of one of the folding panels. Samsung has yet to launch a proper foldable device, even though they’ve been exploring the segment ever since the Youm prototype at CES, more than 4 years ago.

To me this looks more like a MID, a small Vaio, or something like that, not exactly a futuristic machine. You could get more use out of a tablet keyboard dock or a case with a keyboard integrated. Having a physical keyboard on a tablet, even if foldable doesn’t make much sense anymore, for ergonomical reasons, battery reasons and also for the sake of a pretty looking design.

It’s true that convertibles and detachables do have keyboards, but they aren’t the pinnacle or ergonomics or aesthetics. A touch keyboard makes more sense for foldables. Also, word through the grapevine says that Samsung is going to adopt a Snapdragon CPU on a future Windows on ARM device.

The Best Bluetooth Keyboard

By Kimber Streams

bluetooth keyboard logitech k380

After testing 21 keyboards over the past year, we found that the Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard is the best for most people. It’s the first to meet all the requirements of a great multi-use Bluetooth keyboard—comfortable, compact, and versatile—for less than $50. The K380 is almost as great as our longstanding previous pick (which we still love—it’s our new upgrade pick), but it costs less than half as much.

I am happy with my K480, but if Logitech would like to send me one of these to test I certainly would be happy to try it out!

I decided to go with the older Logitech K480, because you just can’t get the K380 yet.

logitech_k480_two_devices-1Now I realize that I was very excited about the new Logitech K380 Bluetooth Keyboard the other day. It looks like a wonderful product and I am certain it will be a great product.

Alas, it is not yet available for order anywhere, even on Logitech’s site it is only a pre-order. Well, since I have always wanted a fullsize keyboard to use with my tablet and smartphone I decided why not try out the ancient tech, (less than a year old), Logitech K480, which has a slot to hold your devices in? Sure it costs a tiny bit more, but, as always, I managed to shop around and find one on Newegg.com for under $28 with free shipping!

I shall be reviewing said keyboard next week and I promise to write said review using the new keyboard and my tablet.

A short follow up here. Months later I am totally happy that I chose this product. The battery is still  going after months of use and I can use it with my phone and both tablets I own with a turn of a knob. You can also still purchase this keyboard on Amazon.com for roughly $30.
