Samsung Galaxy Tab Full Size Keyboard Dock Charges and Syncs

Updated on February 28, 2011

Looking for a Full Size External Keyboard for the Galaxy Tab - Keep Reading

Samsung Galaxy Tab Tablets have 7” Touchscreens. That is plenty large enough to surf the Internet, type emails, send Tweets or update your Facebook page. The onscreen keyboard works well but sometimes it is a pleasure to type on an external keyboard. The problem with most external keyboards is that they are not a full size keyboard which means that the keys are smaller, closer together and some keys are actually excluded. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Full Size Keyboard Dock is different.

Not only is the keyboard full size – the keys are spaced so to make typing easier regardless of the size of your hands. All ordinary keys are included (83 keys) as well as some special shortcut keys geared to access Galaxy Tab Tablet features such as the screen brightness, music, Internet or Home. The Galaxy Tab Full Size Keyboard Dock weighs about 2 pounds. That may seem heavy but the weight is a good thing. As the Galaxy Tab is docked into the keyboard neither device will tip backwards. The stability of the devices make it easier and more pleasurable to type on.

Who Would Probably Use this Keyboard the Most?
