A Bluetooth keyboard for your Android smartphone sounds great when you need to feel real keyboard keys under your fingertips so you can type faster, but the Elecom TK-FNS040 is smarter than that. The smartphone keyboard is compatible with Android and is foldable so you can store it in small spaces inside your bag, but more than that, it connects to the smartphone via NFC instead of Bluetooth. This suggests the battery should last longer than when using Bluetooth.
The design looks ergonomic and for fast typing because you have to keep the smartphone in the middle of the keyboard, in landscape mode, and type using both hands.
The silicone NFC keboard measures 13.4 x 2.6 x 0.3 inch when open and comes with a zippered pouch. The built-in battery is a manganese dioxide lithium type with a life of around 18 months.
The Elecom NFC Android Keyboard TK-FNS040 is available for purchase at JapanTrendShop for $261.
