- Game consoles
- Smart TV.
With the help of the Bluetooth wireless keyboard, you have an option to turn your Smartphone, tablet or game console to real home computer. Our smartphones and tablets are great devices. They are giving you lots of mobility and flexibility. In spite of this, they are not the best choice for writing big messages and longer texts. If you pair the wireless Bluetooth keyboard with the smartphone or keyboard, you can much easily and faster type and write longer texts on your mobile devices.

By using the Bluetooth wireless keyboard, you get greater flexibility and mobility compared to the classical keyboard. You are no longer restricted by the length of the cable from the keyboard. No need for plugging the cable in computer every time you move.

Besides all the advantages, wireless keyboard has some disadvantages. Drawbacks of the wireless keyboard are:
