Here is one especially designed for the female users.
With its make-up-like design and original rose color, the NOVT Bluetooth Foldable Keyboard will become the ladies’ favorite. It is a little more expensive than the other brands but this difference has some solid grounds.
The little gem is compatible with all Bluetooth devices can be used non stop for up to 75 hours and is made of aluminum.
Once unfolded, it offers a comfortable stand for your phone or tablet and when you fold it back you can just put it in your purse, even if it is a small one – the size of the folded keyboard is 8.9 x 2.2 x 0.63 Inches.
Unlike the other keyboards which need a flat and hard surface, you can put this one on your lap which makes it perfect to use while you are relaxing at home or even on the beach.
The only cons of this model is that it can only be connected to one device at the same time, hence we recommend it for leisure.
If you are not into rose, NOVT Foldable Keyboard is also offered in silver.
Size: 7.7 x 1 x 5.5 inches

The iClever Foldable Keyboard is suitable for people who really write a lot more than they surf and scroll – editors, writers, students, bloggers. It is made of aircraft-grade aluminum and offers quiet and comfortable typing so you can use it for example in class or in a library.
This accessory will give you the feeling that you are typing on a real mechanical keyboard ( without the noise ). It folds easily and comes with an iClever case which protects the keyboard from scratching or unfolding.
It is compatible with most devices but keep in mind that if you own a Nokia phone or use Windows 8 operating system, it is better to choose another model as iClever does not get on well with them.
You can find plenty of other brands on Amazon – Microsoft, EC technology, Sungwoo, Geyes, MoKo, etc. – but the top 5 here make the best balance between quality, features, design and price.
Unlike other trending products that become popular very fast but also die down with the same pace, the Portable Bluetooth Keyboard is not just an accessory. It is really useful and can save you a lot of time and stress. Considering that phones and tablets will not grow bigger in size, we will always have a problem to type fast and right using the touch screen.
As I wanted to put some weight behind my words, this post has been written on a foldable keyboard – well, it is true that I cheated a little by connecting it to my big screen and not phone or tablet but this only shows how practical this little fella is.
