Tech Review: Universal Bluetooth Tablet Keyboard Dock

Universal Bluetooth Tablet Keyboard Dock
Android & iPad compatible
GearZap.com
Price: £45 UK | $68 US

Recently, the fine folks at GearZap.com offered us the opportunity to review some of the products from their Galaxy Tab 3 accessories line, and I got my grubby little hands on a Universal Bluetooth Tablet Keyboard Dock. I already own a bluetooth keyboard that I use for virtually everything, but I was really curious how this one would stand up to my needs. Too many of these universal keyboards fail to live up to their claims. I’ve tried a few of them and found them wanting. But I try to give everything a fair shake, so here goes.

Now, to be fair, I didn’t expect to see the unit very quickly at all since they are based in the United Kingdom. Imagine my surprise when the keyboard showed up four days later. I have to admit, I was amazed it had gotten to me so fast. It was well packaged and suffered only minor denting to the item’s box. I was less than impressed with the plain white box in which the keyboard was packaged, it looked cheap and generic. But looks can often times be deceiving, especially with this one.

The unit itself is made for up to 10-inch tablets. It’s got a nice weight to it, definitely setting it apart from most other generic keyboards. The slot that holds the tablet is fixed in size, so no moving parts to break. The keys are solid and feel just as nice as the average laptop keyboard, though at about 80% of the overall size. A charging cable was included, but it’s a generic mini-USB connection so you can use pretty much any other one to recharge the unit.

The legion of Firefly fans looking for new material in the universe have reason to rejoice today as Fox Digtial Entertainment and QMx Interactive announced plans for Firefly Online, the first officially licensed video game for the cult TV show and movie. The game is set to launch in Summer 2014 and will be available on iOS devises and the Android marketplace.

The game lets players take on the role of a ship captain, just like Captain Mal Reynolds from the show, where they will find a ship, hire a crew, and take on missions so they can keep flying. Players will also be able to customize their ship while they explore the ‘Verse, and will also be able to connect with other players using unique social features. There’s no price information on the game yet, so we’ll just have to wait and see if there will be a one-time price for it or if they will go with a monthly price or go with the freemium model of micro-transactions for in game items.

You can check out the official trailer for the game here below.
