I haven't tested it on my android phone but since it uses bluetooth, I assume it works. Works fine with my mac mini and ipad.

Since its solar powered, you don't have to worry about swapping out batteries every month.

The only thing for mc about it is that it has keys with the silk printed apple key on it or whatever... it's just a matter of keymap. Still, solar keyboard what a gimmick.

If only it were the K750 for sale! I have about 5 Apple BT keyboards kicking around but I want a num pad and not have to replace the batteries.

What about during night time, will CFL, LED lighting be sufficient?

Yes a day with just room light should be enough to charge it for a month. You don't have to take it outside and point it towards the sun, unless you want too lol.

No numpad which is a deal-breaker for me, but sounds nice.

Was about to jump on this myself, but the lack of numpad was also a problem for me.

Then I noticed Logitech.com has the full-size K750 for $69.99 with free shipping. Use the promo code logisave5ca to save an extra $5 too:

The only caveat I can see is that this one isn't bluetooth, so the unifying receiver will take up a USB port. Think I'll still pass, but hopefully this is helpful to someone else!

Nice keyboard, a tad overpriced I think though.

It has a little bit of flex and the big solar panel increases the keyboard's footprint but its pretty light. I rarely use the numpad so I like the compact size. You also get to switch between devices with a single keypress. The keys on it I think are better than the Apple version since they slightly concave.

Shows OOS online for me now.
