Keypad lights up your digits

Backlit portable keyboard is barely a quarter-inch thick

Never being sold on fabric or fold-away keyboards, we've been forced for years to make due with our fat fingers on portable devices. But this "ultra-slim" model looks promising enough to consider. (OK, so we like the blue lights.)

The "Freedom Slim" is a lightweight Bluetooth keypad that Mobility Site says is easily stowed in a jacket pocket and can be used either in hand or on any flat surface. At barely a quarter-inch thick and 3.2 ounces, the rechargeable pad seems to live up to its name. And if you're not fond of blue, the backlighting can be switched to orange--but then we'd have to deny knowing you.
