  • Fine, but has problems

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Nice keyboard and cover. Bluetooth pairing works fine. Cover fits good and matches the Nexus 7. Ofcourse small keys but they do work.

    Cons:

    Its heavy due to its battery I assume. And the magnet in the cover, to shutoff the Nexus 7 is much too strong, it also shuts off the Nexus 7 when inserted in the dock. Solution is to use it upside down and let the autorotate solve that, but the on/off key is then inaccessible. Lifting the Nexus to activate is required a lot.

    OtherThoughts:

    Clearly not tested with a real Nexus 7.

    Bottomline:

    Its not recommended. The magnet design flaw makes it inconvenient. I intend to keep it as cover and live with the upside down issue.
