Keyboard, Touchpad and Stand. Not only does it look sleek and weigh less than 500g- it's the definition of an all-in-one attachment to turn your phone or tablet into an office-ready desktop. But with negative PR on the rise from their first project, will the real keyboard warriors be their backers?!
At only 14 mm thick and 29 cm long, SKFP Combo Keyboard can be slipped into pretty much any bag you take with you to the office or cafe.
460g. Lighter than a loaf of bread.
Light Silver and Space Grey makes any tech hardware look more expensive than it is. Thanks Apple.
It uses a Lithium battery supporting up to 400 hours of use.
Wireless connection that allows for a network range for up to 8m.
Your best deal is 51% off the MSRP is with the Super Early Bird (x1) at $265, but the next best Kickstarter discount available is not too far off with $30 off of its original $99 retail price.
With its dearest flat rate of $25 for Canada and other countries upon submission SKFP are offering a pretty fair P&P rate of $10-$18 to common Kickstarter backer regions.
What We Love
1. Product Design
Sleek dupe of Apple products done right! The Combo Keyboard is available in two monotone colors, equipped with 3 brightness levels for backlit keys.
2. Touchpad UX
It’s a nice replica of the Apple keyboard, available in two monotone colors and equipped with
3 brightness levels for backlit keys.
What We Don't
1. Bluetooth connection only
Pairing with up to 3 devices is great, and while most of us are familiar with wireless connection, it’s not ideal for those that require USB plug-ins when technology lets us down.
2. Vague size compatibility
While marketed as compatible with all Window and Apple tablets, the Combo Keyboard is only seen featuring with the iPad Pro.
Is it Worth it?
Upon a deep dive into “Should I really buy this?” The questions began. Avid Kickstarter backers will know to check the Comments section- even before the FAQ.
Alarmingly, the lack of detail on the campaign page that was initially a near enough click-bait purchase due to its economical price, turned out to be a questioning of whether the creators are trusty enough to fulfill shipment. The Combo Keyboard is a cost-friendly accessory that has the potential to fill the gap in Apple's (spenny) accessory department.
