I’ve been debating if I should buy a tablet. In fact, I’ve even considered scrapping my old desktop PC and going with a tablet instead. After some amount of research, I found that I just couldn’t completely convince myself that this was the right way to go. So, I’ve decided on an interim solution! I’ve purchased a Logitech bluetooth travel KB to pair with my Galaxy SII LTE smartphone.

Sounds like a crazy idea, but with Quick Office on the phone, I have just about all I need to travel with. The phone handles my email/social media connections and the new keyboard means I can even use it for writing up articles when I’m covering conferences and events.

Now, I’m not going to compare a smartphone with a tablet, but really, if it can handle all the basics for me, why not put it to the test? Testin it will be just what I will be doing this weekend at a conference in North Carolina.

I’ve included a video review of the keyboard below, but  I want to be sure I tip you to the fact that even though Logitech makes an iPhone/iPad version and an Android version of this keyboard, the Apple version works just fine on my Android. I’m not sure why Logitech is trying to market two different versions since this is BlueTooth. That bit of knowledge is only important because if you want to buy this KB retail, the iPad/iPhone version seems easier to find.

One little tip, when you run the pairing process on your phone, you will see a prompt asking you to enter a PIN. You type that in on the keyboard or try just typing four zeros.
