LG Rolly is an awesome new portable keyboard

Portable keyboards are invaluable when you need to quickly setup in a coffee shop and send off a long email, or draft up a quick proposal, when you don’t have a full-sized computer along. LG on Thursday announced a new one, and it has a unique design with an a perfectly fitting name.

The LG Rolly, as its name implies, rolls right up into a small rectangle box that easily slides into a bag. It’s a little too long for pockets. Unfolded, however, it provides a user with four complete rows of fully functional keys with 17mm key pitch for tactile typing, instead of more touch-based typing that a lot of other portable keyboards offer.

Also, unlike some other keyboards, the LG Rolly has two arms that fold out to grab onto a tablet or smartphone, allowing you to prop the device up in front of you for working. The Rolly is powered by a single AAA battery and runs Bluetooth 3.0. LG says the battery should provide up to 3 months of use.

The Rolly will launch in the U.S. next month, followed by other markets in the fourth quarter. LG didn’t provide pricing for the keyboard.
