One Keyboard makes switching between iPhone and PC a doddle
Typing on your iPhone is always going to be a slow and cumbersome business, but Matias has come up with a clever fix with its One Keyboard range.
The three keyboards let you switch from typing on your PC or Mac to typing on your phone with one click of a button. So if you’re beavering away at work (or Skyrim) and you get a text message, you can rattle off a reply and be back to Excel (or Tamriel) in a jiffy.
You can also fiddle with your iPhone’s brightness, navigation and music controls using the function keys.
We’ll be honest, the One Keyboard Standard isn’t much of a looker – it looks rather, um, functional. Extras include two USB 2.0 ports and a recess for your phone, and the Mac variant helpfully shows hidden characters like the hash and Euro symbols.
The Slim variant is rather more aesthetically pleasing, being a straight lift from Apple‘s own Bluetooth keyboard (albeit with a wired connection to your computer).
The One Keyboard Tactile is based on Matias’ Apple Extended-inspired Tactile One keyboard, with an Alps Mechanical Switch under each key.
The Matias One Keyboards are priced at US$100 for the Standard version, US$85 for the Slim model, and US$205 for the Tactile model, and are available from The Keyboard Company.
