TextBlade Bluetooth Keyboard: Super Tiny But Comes With Full Size Keyboard Keys and Spacing

As compared to smartphone of say, five years ago, today’s smartphones and tablets are very capable. In fact, for some, they have become their workhorses over traditional laptops for working on-the-go. Though so, touchscreen is never the the preferred input option and hence, the existence of keyboard made especially for these devices. We have seen a few ourselves and to be honest, though this accessory keyboard is handy, it is never really that portable. What we need is one that far smaller than your smartphone so it can actually be easy to bring around without having to carry a bag. Sound like an impossibility?
