You’ve probably seen those keyboards constructed from fabric appear on a few web sites over the last few years but I can’t remember seeing one reviewed. That’s history now as Jenneth Orantia of GirlsGoneMobile has given the G-Tech Fabric Keyboard a whirl and written a review of it. The G-Tech’s main benefit to a road warrior is the ability to roll it up and shove it in a gadget bag to haul around. Jenneth’s review is a good thorough overview of the cloth keyboard so if you are interested in this sort of thing don’t miss it. Here’s a snippet to whet your appetite:
Where the G-Tech wins out, however, is in its fuss-free design. While the Stowaway has a lot of foldout pieces and mechanical hinges that don’t look particularly durable, the G-Tech is refreshingly simple with a simple strip of fabric and a plastic base. Smart Fabrics claims the keyboard is waterproof and pierce resistant, and can even be put through the wash if you detach the plastic base. At a mere 65g, it’s also much lighter than any other competitor.
