Why is it so hard to find bluetooth keyboards?

If you search for them in stores and google, you get tons of results that have nothing to do with bluetooth.


Anyway, in a nutshell, I'm just checking around to see what alternatives there are to the official apple bluetooth keyboard.

Function keys arent so important, nor is a numpad. Ideally I'm after maximum portability.


Any ideas?

If you want portability, I like the look of these - diNovo Mini (http://www.logitech.com/en-au/keyboards/keyboard/devices/3848) - I reckon it would be ideal for a HTPC

Otherwise diNovo Keyboard, MacŪ Edition (http://www.logitech.com/en-au/keyboards/keyboard/devices/4741)

Don't pay too much attention to the RRP. Both can be had for ~$129

Really? How / where?

EDIT: Whoops! The diNovo Mac Keyboard requires a USB transmitter, not Bluetooth.

Great keyboard, good battery life with on/off switch.

Out of interest, what's wrong with the Apple Bluetooth keyboard? It's portable, light, and awesome.

Nothing wrong at all, although I'd wish for one with black keys instead of white keys :)

Just want to see what alternatives are out there.

Aw come on dude, the Apple Wireless Keyboard is shocking. The goddamn space-bar is too short so I miss the keys 30% of the time. The wired keyboard is the biz.

If you miss a key that is 4 times larger than all the other keys on the board how do you manage to hit anything at all? even as a touch typists your thumbs should rest in the middle of the space bar, not the edges?
