HP webOS Keyboard to release soon; got FCC approval
The Bluetooth webOS keyboard from HP has just passed the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Named KT-1087, this keyboard will be compatible with the soon to be released HP TouchPad tablet. The keyboard has the same chiclet-style keys and similar styling to that found on HP’s consumer Pavilion and Mini notebooks. You can find direct front and back view photos of the HP WebOS Keyboard here, though color balance appears to be slightly off since the keyboard is actually all-black with white lettering in real life.
The webOS keyboard looks pretty good, and features a sleek, curvy and professional looking design that would go well with the upcoming HP TouchPad. Not many details for the keyboard have been released, besides the fact that we know it runs on batteries, uses Bluetooth for connectivity and is compatible with webOS. The keyboard is very thin, much like the Apple wireless keyboard, black in color and curved on the top to create an elevation for a confortable typing. Underneath the curve, there is a hidden compartment which loges two AA batteries.
The good news is that this means the HP WebOS Keyboard will likely be available alongside or soon after the HP Touchpad tablet hits the market.
