LG Rolly Rollable Portable Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard KBB-700
Product Reference: 55180
The Rolly rollable wireless keyboard from LG makes typing on a smartphone or tablet a breeze. It folds up along the four key rows to create an easy-to-carry 'stick' and also includes a built-in device stand.
My first impression is of a neat little device that is good to look at and functional.
The keyboard unrolls and rolls up in a very pleasing manner, utilising magnets to hold it closed. It is easy to set up and has the nifty function of being able to pair with two devices and switch between the two without turning the Bluetooth off on either device. Once you're familiar with the key functions this is an easy procedure.
The keyboard is fairly comfortable to type on, with decent key travel and feel. It takes a bit of getting used to with all the numbers and most symbols added to the letter keys and accessed via a blue Fn key. This is to be expected since the keyboard is limited to four rows by its roll-up design. If you're using it on a shiny surface it can move around a bit. This is easily rectified by either placing it on a magazine, or, as I have done, cut an oblong of non-slip matting the size of the keyboard. This not only does the trick, but wraps around the closed keyboard when not in use and acts as a protector held in place with a couple of elastic bands. Believe it or not, it is actually rigid enough to work placed on your lap, and does not slide around (depending on the fabric of your trousers/skirt).
All told, this is a very neatly presented little keyboard, functions well and is extremely portable. It doesn't match my Apple keyboard, but is far more portable and only weighs in at 160g. If, like me, you write a lot on the move and don't like using a touch-screen keyboard for extended periods, this is a very useful addition to a smartphone or tablet. As long as you accept the few limitations imposed by the nature of its size, you won't be disappointed.
I have paired this with a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and an iPad(3rd gen) and it works perfectly with both.

Nice good quality portable keyboard. Need to use function and shift keys quite alot. Casing very smooth when rolled out so slides around when typing on a smooth surface (most desks or tables) - might stick some small felt/rubber pads for grip. Overall though a great solution to give netbook utility to your tablet.
Incredibly portable folding keyboard for smartphones and tablets
Unlike other portable keyboards which roll lengthways, the LG Rolly folds along the four key rows to create an easy-to-carry 'stick' that fits snugly into a pocket, purse or briefcase. When required, simply roll out the keyboard to use with your smartphone or tablet for a more pleasing typing experience compared to a virtual on-screen keyboard.
Built-in device stand - supports devices up to 10"
The LG Rolly also features a built-in device stand which consists of two fold-out arms that can support both smartphones and tablets up to 10".
Wireless Bluetooth connectivity
No need for messy tangled wires as the LG Rolly Keyboard features Bluetooth technology to connect completely wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet.
Dual pairing for connecting to 2 devices for easy switching
Pair to a tablet and a smartphone, so you can easily switch between the two to type using the LG Rolly with ease. Receive a text message on your phone while typing an important document on your tablet? Not a problem, simply switch the connected device using the keyboard controls and use your LG Rolly to type your response through your phone. When completed, switch back again to continue your work on your tablet - it really is that simple!
Durable, impact-resistant construction
Made from a sturdy combination of Polycarbonate and ASB plastic the LG Rolly keyboard is impact resistant and durable as well as being light and portable.
Satisfyingly tactile feedback
Despite its slim dimensions, the LG Rolly offers nearly identical tactile feedback to a 'normal' office keyboard with a key pitch of 17mm (as opposed to 18mm).
Battery life of up to 3 months
Powered by a single AAA battery the LG Rolly keyboard can last up to three months of average use. Also, with its auto on and off feature, to ensure the keyboard is powered off when idle.
Quick iOS shortcut keys
When you're in full work mode, you don't want to constantly switch between touch and typing. Not to worry - if you're using an iPhone or iPad, this device's Command key can be used to access quick iOS shortcut keys for crucial functions like media playback, copy-and-paste and screen sleep / wake, as well as productivity suite features such as justification and text formatting - so you can do everything from the keyboard.

"Impressed with the website and the follow up contacts including the voice text seconds after receiving delivery. My order was placed after 6pm but was delivered by mid morning the second day after. This sort of service makes me feel valued and and keen to place future orders with MobileFun. Well Done!"
"Pre-ordered an Samsung Gear 3 at the beginning of November and although there was a considerable wait for the stock to arrive, Mobile fun kept me informed the whole time. Received my Gear 3 a few days earlier than expected, so very pleased. The staff member on the comments section for the Frontier watch was getting a lot of grief from anxious customers, but I felt his/her responses were honest and professional and after reading their comments, I felt reassured that Mobile Fun were doing everything possible to keep their customers up to date with the latest stock arrival dates."
