foldable rollable Bluetooth keyboard, the imaginatvely named ‘Rolly Keyboard’ caused quite a stir when it was announced last year. LG never got around to launching the keyboard in Australia, but they’ve announced a second, slightly improved model.
The new version, called the Rolly Keyboard 2, has a 5 row keyboard as opposed to the first keyboards 4-row layout. The keyboard with the larger layout – it’s also an
octagon pentagon shape when rolled up rather than a square – is also larger with a 274 × 31.7 × 30.7 mm footprint and weighs in at a slightly heavier 161 grams.
The Rolly Keyboard 2 is again powered by a single AAA battery and is compatible with both Android and iOS devices, as well as Windows (v7 and above) and Mac (OS X 10.7 and above) desktop devices.
We had some brief hands-on time with the gen 1 Rolly Keyboard at IFA in Germany, and while it wasn’t perfect, it was a pretty decent keyboard and the rolled-up, compact form factor meant it slips into a go bag quite easily.
LG has announced pricing for the Rolly Keyboard 2 at 129,000 Won or almost $150AUD ($146.22 to be exact). No launch details have been announced outside of Korea, but we’ve checked in with LG Australia in the hope we may see this one hit our shores.
