Review: Viboton Mobile Wireless Mini Keyboard Touchpad Combo
Whether you have a home theater PC, Android TV box, or some other device where you would benefit from a compact mini wireless keyboard and touchpad combination, this new offering from Viboton may be just what you need. The Viboton Mobile Wireless Mini Keyboard Touchpad Combo is palm-sized, rechargeable, and multi-function.
Instead of relying on the vagaries of Bluetooth, the Viboton Mobile Wireless Mini Keyboard Touchpad Combo comes with a tiny USB receiver that gives a range of about 20 meters or 65 feet. Besides the keyboard and receiver, the package also includes the removable lithium ion battery, short miniUSB charging cable, and a user guide.
For testing purposes, I tried the Viboton Mobile Wireless Mini Keyboard Touchpad Combo on a WinBook TW700 7″ Tablet, which runs Windows 8.1, and allows me to use the famously inexpensive tablet as a TV PC. Setup involved nothing more than me plugging the dongle into the USB port and turning the keyboard on. It was immediately recognized and even allowed for control of the tablet’s other functinality, like volume and opening up the Web browser, from the keyboard’s dedicated keys (which also includes, amongst its other features, a multi-language button for English, German, Russian, Hebrew, Spanish, or Arabic).
The textured touchpad’s precision was excellent, especially given the small size. While the keys were spaced very close together, overall responsiveness was excellent. If you’re looking for an ultra compact keyboard and touchpad combo that eschews Bluetooth, there’s little not to like about the feature-rich Viboton Mobile Wireless Mini Keyboard Touchpad Combo.
Thanks to Viboton for the review unit.
