You see it listed on the vast majority of phones now, or you see people wearing the odd little headsets on their ear with no wires running to them, but what is Bluetooth really?

Over the past few years Bluetooth, a form of wireless communication protocol, has slowly been creeping it’s way on to cell phones, laptops and other mobile devices. You can add it to a desktop computer if you choose to, but it rarely comes pre-installed. The main drive of the technology is allowing you to use wireless headsets with your cell phone, but they also can work well with laptops for when you want to talk on programs such as Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

One of the nice things is most Bluetooth headsets can be used with more than one device, so you can use the same one with your phone and your laptop.  In the reverse, most devices can connect to more than one other item, so you can use a Bluetooth headset with your laptop as well as a Bluetooth powered mouse, or use it to connect your phone and laptop together to use it as a modem or sync data.

This technology may seem scary, but most devices come with very easy, straightforward directions that tell you how to “pair” (make it talk to another device) very easily.  Once you have them paired to each other they will continue to recognize one another whenever they are near each other and turned on.

One interesting note is that Bluetooth runs on the 2.4GHz radio frequency, which is yet another item crowding the radio band, and hence why we talked about you may want to buy 5.8GHz cordless phones in the post 2.4 GHz vs 5.8 GHz Cordless Phones.  That is also another point in that Bluetooth is finally creeping into cordless phones, but it is taking some time.

    I installed this keoryabd on a computer running Windows 7. No problems with installation, in fact, I did not need the driver disk Windows found the drivers automatically. The keoryabd and mouse also did an automatic connection to the USB receiver. If this doesn’t happen, there is a connect button on the keoryabd to help facilitate the connection. Even though Windows will find and install the drivers automatically, I would recommend using the installation disk as there are additional features beyond the device drivers.Inside the box is a wireless keoryabd, a wireless mouse, a USB receiver, batteries for both the mouse and keoryabd, and the driver disk.The keoryabd is about 18 wide by 5bd deep by be tall.After installation, I unplugged my original keoryabd, a traditional Microsoft one. I am currently typing on the Verbatim keoryabd. I also have a and have found no hardware conflicts.I have some customer images to show how it compares visually next to a traditional keoryabd and mouse.Here’s what I like and don’t like about the Verbatim Wireless Slim Keyboard:PROS:It has a nice weight to it so it will not slide around on a desk too easily.The keys are nicely responsive. They are smooth and spaced a little apart making it easier to hit the key you want and not the one next to it. Other keoryabds have the keys so large with no gaps so that it is easy to hit multiple keys in one stroke.It is small, not so much in width but in depth. My traditional keoryabd is two inches more in depth.It takes up less desk space and has no cord to get in the way.The finish is shiny black and smooth, as is the mouse.The mouse is much shorter in height than my Microsoft mouse. It has a wheel and two buttons.CONS:It does not have a feature to raise the board on more of an angle, although as of now, this is not a huge issue. I know that I like my Microsoft keoryabd to be on the biggest angle by using the flip out legs.It does not have a couple of the extra keys that the Microsoft keoryabd has like zoom in and zoom out, and some of the shortcuts for opening email etc. However, I do not use these so again, it depends on the way you use your keoryabd.Overall, I really like the feel of typing on this keoryabd. I would say that between the responsiveness and touch of the keys and the clutter free wireless feature, this is a good buy.I have to add that after using this for a number of days, I’ve increased my original review from 4 stars to 5. I really like the way the keys react on the keoryabd. They have a really solid feel and I make less typing mistakes than with my old keoryabd.
