Whatever happened to the FrogPad?
I got one of these about 5 years ago. They seem to have gone out of production since then, but now appear to have new funding to start up again.
So as an owner, here's a mini-review.
Design and build is first class - Apple Computer standard. Very very solid and slick. Inside a day you can be up to 'normal' typing speed with one hand.
VERY low footprint, so ideal for use in confined areas.
Battery powered, but also with adapter/charger.
I tried to use it as a main keyboard, but it was just too much effort. It's Bluetooth. So that means wireless, but you do keep having to 'pair' it with the target machine. A pain.
They come in right or left handed models.
If you are a professional and rely on having to keep working with say a broken arm, then this is an ideal backup.
Way faster than touch-typing with one hand, but there is 1 day's learning curve.
Build quality is superb, first-rate.
Consider getting one just as a backup in case you break an arm or something. If you are a computing contractor like myself, then this will earn it's investment before lunchtime the
next day back at work.
Just be aware of this option.
