Bluetooth Keyboard for Tablet

#1dominatinggamerPosted 8/24/2013 11:31:23 AM
So in-between long gaming binges I try to be productive. I got rid of my laptop in favor of a tablet (Nexus 7, Gen 1) earlier this year and need to make it more of a content creating, rather than content consuming, machine. One of those steps include finding a bluetooth keyboard [insert plea for help here].

I'm looking for any suggestions on good and portable (while less than $30) bluetooth keyboards and suggestions on how to carry said keyboard around. Few if any of the keyboards that are sold include a carry case. I assume if you are using it with a tablet it's meant to be portable but many companies have kinda overlooked the portability aspect aside from making it slim.

So any help with this would be great.

They don't make a keyboard case for the Nexus 7?

They do, but I'm not interested in the all-in-one cases. Sorry, should have mentioned that in op.
I have a leather case that also converts into a stand which I prefer using with the tablet since I mainly use it as e-reader and casual internet use.
The keyboard I'm imagining is completely stand alone and can be left in its own case/sleeve in my bag until it's needed.

Maybe I'm in the minority with such a request?

This is one option I'm considering as I like the "case" it comes with and it seems to be an above average keyboard as well.

A sleeve for a keyboard but wow, $20?

Microsoft Wedge Keyboard, possibly. Seems similar to the one you linked.
