I just received the Poetic Bluetooth Nook HD Keybook series keyboard/cover, purchased on Amazon for $29.00, no shipping cost as I am Prime member.
Sorry no pic I'm still stock no flash.
Connecting the Poetic to the HD's bluetooth was quick and easy. However it took a few minutes to get the HDs onboard keyboard to drop out and the external keyboard operating independently. If you have a problem reboot the HD one or two times , also check the keyboard settings in all settings/general.
Yes the keyboard is a bit cramped, however if you are a well practiced touch typist you should quickly get some decent wps typing performance. I have fairly good sized hands, but can touch type and it gets easier the more I type.
The outside keys like shift , enter, delete, caps, tab, are the hardest to hit consistently, again practice makes it easier. A few keys are not where you expect and they willl slow you down, like the hypen key which requires hittingthe FN key to access the hypen. The feel of the keyboard as you type is great, actuallly I`m surrised how good the keys feel and react. The Poetic is NOT a rubber/plastic chiclet style keypad. One important key is the key to jump to the URL bar in the browser, on the Poetic it is the search icon key left of the space bar. The Poetic does not come with a manual, just a 4 page quick user guide. Thus nothing to explain any of the FN keys. So you will have to play with them until you figure out what they do. The single biggest annoyance is the size of the space key. It is dead center but needs to be about an inch wider, again with practice you willl get used to it.
One nice feature is the keyboard can completely detach from the case thus more versatility.
The case has a nice feel and should provide decent protection. However the weight, thickness, and the closing strap may be an annoyance to many.
Without mouse navigation through the Nook GUI you quickly discover the need of quick access keys or programable fn keys specific for HD navigation would be nice but are not included. Having to reach to the screen and drag or click to open is awkward but again this shouldn`t keep you from buying.
Recommend or Not?
Yes for the price and a keyboard with nook case, the Poetic is very good deal. The shell cases sold at B&N are $25 and more when not on sale. So far I realy like the Poetic, and would recommend it.
