One2Touch NFC keyboard hits shelves in Japan
Hate thumbing e-mails on your phone? Japan’s Elecom is launching One2Touch’s portable keyboard that connects with your handset via near field communication (NFC). When you don’t need it, just fold it up and slip it into your pocket.
Announced earlier this year, the silicone rubber accessory is billed as the word’s first full-size keyboard for smartphones that does without cables, pairing, and battery charging; the internal battery lasts about 18 months.
The device works with Android and the NFC IP-1 protocol. You simply plonk your NFC handset in the middle of it and start banging away on the keys. Check out the promo vid below.
