Little wireless keyboards are nice, I have a few of them myself, I only have more than one because I get them for review but having at least one is good. I like the little ones as they’re small and portable and can be used with most anything for example with an HTPC which is what I use mine for. If you have it hooked up to your TV then not everybody wants or needs a full sized keyboard hanging around their entertainment center so something small is nice. Rapoo has just announced the E2700 which is priced at about $50 and it’s small and portable and has a built-in touchpad for navigation without a mouse.
Rapoo, a leading manufacturer of wireless peripheral products, unveils the E2700 multimedia wireless keyboard with touchpad, part of the company’s highly esteemed Blade Series. The ultra-slim keyboard is an essential tool designed to enhance productivity and performance right from the comfort of your couch. There’s no need to use a separate keyboard and mouse when browsing the web or enjoying multimedia with this expertly designed, all-inclusive peripheral.
The E2700 boasts a scissor key structure for heightened accuracy, reliability, and the perfect key stroke results every time. This eliminates typos because the micro-scissors distribute pressure evenly across the key surfaces so each quiet keystroke you make is correct every time. The E2700 keyboard consists of 80 keys including 13 hotkeys (i.e. volume, mute, forward/back and more). Additionally, the touchpad on the right side of the keys takes the place of a mouse, and ensures full media control with the swipe of a finger.
The included nano USB receiver is so small and unobtrusive that you can simply plug it into your device’s USB port and forget about it. The E2700 operates on a 2.4GHz wireless frequency with a 360 degree range and up to 33-feet of working range for a reliable connection. If you want to take your keyboard with you, simply store the USB receiver in the small compartment on the back side of the keyboard.
The E2700 is lightweight (186 grams) and thin (5.6mm) so you can easily store it when not in use. With an elegant brushed stainless steel plate, the keyboard and touchpad is just as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional, and it can fit into the décor of any living room or home office.
The E2700 is available in black or white and has an MSRP of $49.99
