Introducing the Ergonomic Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard
It is becoming increasingly evident that one of the biggest trends for computers, even desktop computers, is
wireless technology. With a maze of wires dangling from your computer, collecting dust and creating trip hazards,
less is more when it comes to our electronic devices. This trend is one of the reasons why it is predicted that a
Bluetooth wireless keyboard will become the standard, rather than an option. Because of the advances in battery
life and in wireless technology networking, the day is coming that everything that needs to communicate with your
computer, from the keyboard to the mouse and every other needed peripheral, will do so wirelessly.
Apple once again seems to be leading the way, as they have been the first to make the Bluetooth enabled wireless
keyboard part of the standard suite of equipment that comes with their new iMac. Their wireless keyboard is also a
perfect compliment to their Apple Bluetooth Wireless Mighty Mouse, which has some additional fresh features for the
Other manufacturers are also offering Bluetooth enabled wireless keyboard models, which can be used with any
Bluetooth enabled computer, be it a desktop model or a laptop. In fact, these wireless keyboards can also be used
with a handheld computer or with a Bluetooth wireless technology PDA. While you probably don't want to lug around
your Bluetooth keyboard with your PDA, it can be a nice option if you want to quickly add contacts or notes from
the home or office where you are using your wireless keyboard.
If you are ready to make the switch to a Bluetooth wireless keyboard and a Bluetooth wireless mouse, then one of
the more popular options is the Rocketfish Wireless Multimedia Bluetooth Keyboard and Laser Mouse. This combination
package of keyboard and mouse employs mobile wireless technology networking that has been getting very positive
reviews from users. One note though, it will only operate with Windows computers and not with any Apple Macintosh
Both the Rocketfish Bluetooth enabled wireless keyboard and the wireless mouse utilize a USB adapter key, which
is included in the package. This USB Bluetooth wireless adapter key uses the WIDCOMM Bluetooth version 5.1, which
gives the devices a range of up to 60 feet. However, this range might be considered overkill since not much will be
readable on your computer screen at a distance of 60 feet, not matter how big the words or how sharp your eyes.
Not only does the USB Bluetooth wireless key drive both the Rocketfish mouse and keyboard, but it also functions
as a Bluetooth hub. This hub function allows you to transfer digital files to and from your computer or any other
Bluetooth enabled device.
Reviewers have commented that the Rocketfish Bluetooth enabled wireless keyboard is very thin and is also very
stylishly designed and comes with a comfortable wrist pad built right into the unit. The keyboard has 104 keys for
all the normal functions, and it also boasts 10 bonus keys. These are "one-touch" keys that are intended to be used
for multimedia access and control. For instance, one of the keys will open up an internet browser, one will get
email, and still another will access the help screens. There are also dedicated keys for playing DVDs, with such
functions as play, rewind, pause and fast forward, as well as keys for volume and mute.
The Bluetooth wireless keyboard and the Bluetooth wireless mouse are just the first step in eliminating the
wires and cords that can be so annoying and cumbersome. In addition to the convenience of working without wires,
thanks to today's mobile wireless technology, there are also some real benefits in ergonomics. With a wireless
keyboard and mouse, you will no longer be limited to where you can position your keyboard, but can place it where
it is most comfortable and where you are in an ergonomically correct position.
