Keyboards with a Start button are obviously designed for Windows machines, while keyboards with Command and Options buttons are designed for Macs. There's lots to love here, the design, that brilliant cover that doubles as a stand for your tablet and the build quality. We give a lot of attention to the Surface Pro 3 here at Windows Central, but I realize that not everyone uses one or plans on getting one. The unboxing is below and the test is happening right now as I type this…As I got close to finalizing V13 of the Ultra Mobile Reporting kit this week in preparation for CeBIT I realized I needed a new keyboard. Microsoft is well known for crafting some very sleek and durable keyboard , and the new ultraslim Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard is no exception.
Wedge Mobile Keyboard er et smart og relativt lite, om enn en anelse tungt, tilbehør til nettbrettet ditt. As previously reported in several unboxing articles, Microsoft Hardware sent over three mice and a mobile keyboard for a little hands-on: the Wedge Mobile Keyboard, the Wedge Touch Mouse, the Sculpt Touch Mouse and the Microsoft Touch Mouse. The Wedge Touch Mouse is strangely small, but on purpose: again, it's meant to work alongside a tablet, thus it can be slipped right into your pocket without causing any snide remarks.
As another example, the mouse makes scrolling through images easy: just swipe a finger left and right to move forward and backward in Windows Photo Viewer. The Wedge Touch Mouse performs like any other mouse out of the box, but it can be customized in Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center.
Regardless, the included gaming commands consist of a Precision Booster for adjusting the pointer speed (like slowing it down for sniping off a few heads), a Gaming Toggle for recording and playing up to two favorite key sequences while in-game (which helps with repetitive tasks and sequences that are long or difficult to run), and Quick Turn for spinning your character to face in the opposite direction. In addition to the gaming features, customers can also assign browser commands, content commands (like Copy, Paste, Delete etc), key commands, open Flip 3D or Instant Viewer, use Digital Ink in PowerPoint, assign macros and more. In addition to the basic settings, Microsoft’s app also allows the user to set app-specific settings, meaning you can assign mouse buttons to perform different commands in different programs. Naturally you won't get this kind of customization on an Android tablet, but I'm willing to bet you'll see the same features on a Windows 8 tablet.
Wait, let me back up there – I have actually used this keyboard as a main source of input for a while just for kicks. Still, I won't lie: typing on the keyboard can be a challenge, especially if you're used to large, spacious keyboards.
In addition to the Windows 8 button, the keyboard also provides a line of media and Hot Keys along the top for adjusting the volume, bringing up the Desktop screen, the Settings screen, searching, sharing and more. The cover's rubbery surface makes it a magnet for catching dust, food particles and other undesirable cling-ons. In my case, I paired the keyboard – along with the Wedge Touch Mouse – with Google's Nexus 7 tablet. On the whole, I really love both Wedge gadgets although the keyboard is a bit more expensive than the mouse, costing $79.95. BOTTOM LINEThe Wedge Mobile Keyboard and Wedge Touch Mouse are awesome peripherals for on-the-go computing.
I had planned to cover the other two Microsoft mice in this hands-on, but this installment got rather lengthy, so we'll do the Touch Mouse and Sculpt Touch Mouse in another installment.
Microsoft has always sold their own products like this (the sidewinder).The pricing is steep, but hopefully that eventually comes down. That’s what the Wedge Mobile keyboard from Microsoft lets me do with my Google Nexus 10 now. For starters, the keys have a tactile feel that will put many larger PC keyboards to shame. I’d also like to point out the small green light that subtly blinks as you type on the keyboard, revealing to you that it is actually working.
All said, the Wedge Mobile is a great piece of gear to accompany your tablet – it works with Windows machines and iPads too, by the way. Started in June 2008 by technology journalists and ex-journalists from Singapore who share a common love for all things geeky and digital, the site now includes segments on personal computing, enterprise IT and Internet culture.

It is cute little devil with a lot to offer the tablet user who is often running around from place to place.
Much like its companion, the Wedge Mouse, the Wedge Keyboard is a compact and minimalistic device made up of matte black plastic keys accompanied by a shiny silver trim. On the bottom of the Wedge is a riser that gives the keyboard a slight tilt for better ergonomics. To top it off, the Wedge Keyboard comes with a rubberized cover that snaps on over the keys protecting them while in your briefcase or bag. Getting started with the Wedge Keyboard is as easy as popping in the batteries and choosing it in your Bluetooth device settings. Because of its diminutive size, typing on the Wedge Keyboard takes a little getting used to.


The person who will truly benefit from this device is someone with a small tablet, like a Dell Venue 8 Pro, who often works on the go. Unlike the Wedge Mouse, you probably wouldn't want to use this keyboard as your primary one at home, though it is great for keeping in your laptop bag or even some sleeves. I was using this with the Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse and a Lenovo ThinkPad 8 tablet for a while. The first three gadgets are designed to work with Windows 8 right out of the box – the latter Touch Mouse will supposedly get its own Windows 8-specific features next month when the blocky new OS ships.
That said, I suspect Microsoft wants customers to use these two gadgets when Windows 8-based tablets hit the scene next month. It merely comprises of two buttons bordered by brushed aluminum on each side, with the smallest rounded edge facing your fingertips and the taller end towards your palm. Scratch that – there really aren't two buttons, but rather the mouse features one continuous surface with a single line screened down the middle. But there's a catch: swipe too fast, and all the pictures roll by as if they're trying to make a motion picture. Actually the customization options are rather insane, and even includes commands for gamers.
These options are actually part of Microsoft's app, and not specifically a feature of this particular mouse.
These options can be applied to the left or right button, changing their default, run-of-the-mill mouse settings.
In a Windows 8 environment, the gadget's touch-based capabilities make it easier for users without a touch-based screen to navigate Microsoft’s Modern UI (formerly known as Metro).
There's a button on the bottom that opens one of the sides, allowing users to insert the battery. Each key is still 0.50-inches square, but there's no space in-between – Microsoft has them packed in, edge-to-edge. Their secondary nature is to perform as your typical function keys, but only when the user presses the Fn button. But this rubbery design also makes it extremely flexible so that users can clamp it onto the keyboard, and to bend it in the middle for making a makeshift tablet prop. It works as expected, and the keyboard cover accommodates the smaller size without a problem – the rubbery surface probably helps keep it in place with its non-slip "grip." The keyboard itself features a prop underneath which plays host to the batteries and Bluetooth button, as sen above – simply hold this for several seconds until the device goes into discovery mode.
That said, for this mobile couple, you're looking at shelling out $150 – that's not exactly cheap.
Their small, compact size makes them easy to stash away with a tablet or notebook, and the keyboard's rubber cover even serves as a tablet prop, turning any Bluetooth-capable tablet into a makeshift netbook.
Still, these are high-quality Microsoft peripherals, and will work great with the upcoming Windows 8 platform no matter the form factor. Then again, I'm not one to talk, I'm the guy who buys the nice mechanical keyboard, has two different mice (one for multi-purpose, one for gaming), etc. I haven’t been convinced of these small keyboards until now, because most of them involve typing on really small keys that are so shallow your fingers might as well have been hammering away at the metal underneath.
Keys feel responsive when you press down, and no, your fingers thankfully aren’t hammering at metal despite the very thin profile here.
It snaps into place not just to protect the keys but also to automatically power down the keyboard. During a short weekend break recently, I brought only my Nexus 10 and the keyboard on my trip and I was pleasantly surprised, whether I was firing away e-mails or editing a couple of reports.
This lets me type down what has been talked about at meetings, and sometimes fire away a quick e-mail reply if an urgent message comes in. Sure, it’s somewhat overpriced, as tablet accessories often are, but the alternatives are not cheap either and they are often not half as good. ???? ???? ?????? ??? ????? ?????, ? ????? ????? ??? ?????? ????? ?????? ???

There are many other great Windows 8 tablets out there that do not have their own keyboard option available, so today I am taking a look at the Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard. This bump also houses the tray for the two AAA batteries that provide power and is where the Bluetooth pairing button resides. Once discovered, the PC will prompt you to type a six-digit code on the Wedge and press enter. However, if you can type comfortably on a Type Cover, then this shouldn't be an issue for you.
It bends in the middle and grips the top and bottom of your device to hold it upright as you type. It packs a lot of functionality in a subtle form factor, providing a tiny workstation for your touch-based tablet.
It can't split wood, but it does a fine job performing on almost any surface thanks to Microsoft's BlueTrack technology. Personally I use both with my Nexus 7 tablet, turning the Asus-made gadget into a makeshift Android netbook. You'll never actually rest your hand on the gadget – it's just that small – unless you have extremely small hands or you're four years old. That said, the mouse offers two swiping modes: slow and fast, depending on your viewing and browsing needs.
But let's stop right there for a second: this is not a gaming mouse unless you're playing something like Diablo 3 or Guild Wars 2.


Users can also disable one of the buttons too, creating one large clickable mouse button surface instead. I didn't explore this option, but Microsoft offers a few examples like opening the Magnifier when launching a specific app.
Simply swipe your finger left and right to browse across the new horizontal interface, then click on your desired app. There's also the power button underneath for turning off the device when not in use – it's also used to pair the device with your Bluetooth-enabled tablet, desktop or laptop.
It's designed for portability, for sticking it in your pocket or laptop bag without taking up too much space. It measures about 4-inches deep and 10-inches wide, making it less-than-ideal for working in the office and playing first-person shooters, but great for typing documents and emails on a tablet while camped out at a coffee shop.
Like the Wedge Touch Mouse, it's comprised mostly of brushed aluminum, making it both light and highly sturdy. Instead of having my laptop in my actual lap, I used both Wedge gadgets and set the laptop off to the side.
That said, I've found myself misspelling more than usual, and caps lock officially became my #1 enemy. Naturally in a Windows 7 environment, the specific Windows 8 shortcuts don't work save for the volume controls. It will also turn off the keyboard when clamped on, saving battery power, and then turn the keyboard back on when the cover is removed. Then again, we've seen a gaming keyboard costing around the same price, so customers will have to determine if the mobile-focused gadgets are worth the cost.
The keyboard's Windows 8-specific keys should shorten the learning curve while the touch-based features on the mouse will make navigation a breeze.
Microsoft has done something others have failed here -provide a comfortable typing experience with a really portable keyboard. And the compartment at the bottom that stores the two AAA-sized batteries provide an angled tilt that is comfortable to type on. This was the first time in years, almost since I started work, that I hadn’t brought along a laptop on a trip. Bei einem spA¤teren Zahlungseingang a€“ wird in einem neuen Fenster oder Reiter geA¶ffnet verschiebt sich das Lieferdatum entsprechend. Esc doubles as the keyboard's power button, and there is an additional key that works like a right-click in applications.
I still use it occasionally but it's mostly been supplanted by the Venue 11 Pro (although I still use the Sculpt Comfort Mouse with that). Honestly, I spent most of my hands-on with this mouse using it on the couch, the floor and even my leg when playing Diablo 3 in my beach chair without having to pull out a solid surface or mouse pad. This was the first time I've ever tried to pair a Bluetooth mouse with my Android gadget, and I was surprised to see the typical mouse functionality in Ice Cream Sandwich.
In a browser, this means the user can swipe a finger up and down this line to scroll up and down – swiping left and right scrolls left and right. PC gamers with a taste for first-person shooters will need to look elsewhere given its overall physical size and limited buttons.
Ultimately this means you can assign essentially the same things as you can in Basic Settings, but instead of a general assignment across the board, they're focused on a specific app. I find myself holding it with my thumb, middle and ring fingers while placing my palm on the desktop or some other surface. Merely hold the power switch down for a few seconds until the mouse emits a red line along the rounded backside (you can't see it until it's lit, under the Microsoft logo), indicating it's ready for pairing. The edges are rounded and smooth, eliminating any possible flesh wounds due to sharp edges.
It was laziness to the extreme, I know, but the mouse and keyboard made it happen, taking up very little space in my lap.
So as I said, the Wedge Mobile Keyboard is ideal for mobile uses, and not everyday computing. It's also made of a rubber material, allowing users to store the keyboard with their tablet in a bag while reducing possible scratches to the tablet's screen in the process. It feels like it may eventually snap in two at the perforation, but it doesn't – it simply bends accordingly, and will bend back into place just as easily when the user is ready to place it back on the keyboard. I say yes because they're top notch, Bluetooth-based peripherals from Microsoft, ready for Windows 8, and as far as the mouse goes, packs plenty of customization. This is intuitive design that you might expect from Apple, yet the keyboard is made by Microsoft.
Die tatsA¤chliche Versandzeit kann in EinzelfA¤llen, insbesondere zu Spitzenzeiten, abweichen. You could thus assign the left mouse button to act one way in Crisis 2 and another way in Google Chrome. The mouse actually clicks when pressed, staying old school so you'll still have that tactile reassurance. Then again, it's a mobile mouse with touch-based features and the ability to perform on almost any surface, so many may deem the price as worth the expense. Bluetooth eliminated any wiring, making it easy to set them aside when my legs went numb and I needed a break. It even sports a Windows 8 key, replacing our favorite Windows 7 key, which brings up the Modern UI Start Screen all the same.
