LG unveils the Rolly Keyboard 2 – probably won’t go onsale in Australia either

LG Rolly Keyboard 2
LG’s awesome 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.

Would you use the LG Rolly Keyboard 2?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

One minor correction: an octagon has eight sides. This rolls up to a pentagon shape.
