LG has revealed its appropriately named keyboard called Rolly which can be rolled up into a ‘stick’ for easy storing, or defending yourself. This portable keyboard may be connected to your smartphone or tablet so you don’t have to aim cuss words at all those urgent work mails that take forever to type out on your mobile device’s screen.
One of the best things about the LG Rolly is how wholesome it is, offering you the full size keyboard experience even when you’re on the move. Just like most of its desktop counterparts, its keys lend a decent amount of dip, measured at 17mm. Meaning you don’t have to contend with flattish keys with very little tactile feedback.
The Rolly can be hooked up to a smartphone or tablet without needing wires since it has Bluetooth 3.0 technology onboard. What’s more, you can connect it to two devices at a time. Switching between them is as easy as pressing a toggle button.
LG has constructed the Rolly out of polycarbonate and ABS plastic. The keyboard is powered by only one AAA battery, but can apparently last for up to three months of average usage. The South Korean company plans to introduce several more mobile accessories over the next few months.
We know you’re dying to know how much it costs. But LG hasn’t let out the price and exact release date details yet. The US will be welcoming it first next month. Following its September launch, the Rolly KBB-700 will hit certain markets in Europe, Latin America and Asia.
It’s not clear if LG intends for its cool new keyboard to be used with phones and tablets by other companies too. But if you were selling a peripheral like this, you’d make sure it was compatible with as many devices as possible, right?
