Can anyone recommend a good keyboard for the Nexus 7 Tablet. I imagine there must be a suitable bluetooth keyboard available somewhere but cannot find any recommended ones so hopefully someone has tried one that works
Thanks

I personally use the Logitech Android Bluetooth keyboard. It is quite decent. But there might be others out there that are more catered for nexus 7 directly. I just thought having a generic one would help in case i decide to get rid of my Nexus (which is more than likely going to happen soon!)

I bought the Logitech K810 bluetooth keyboard and I love it! It allows you to pair 3 devices and to switch between them by pressing a key - really easy to go from typing on phone to typing on the Nexus 7 or the iPad.

I am not sure what to beleive about new Nexus some say there is no 7 inch anymore and that it is replaced by an 8. something while I had something from Google the other day saying there is a 7 inch coming late October. Either way I want it and I want a Nexus 6 which should be out in a  month or so

Isn't the K810 a bit large especially if traveling. I want something a bit smaller

I don't find it too big - I like having it almost full sized because it's easier to type on, and it's very thin and light. but to each his own!

How does the K810 handle App changes and the Home function? I like the backlight and rechargeable features of this over the Android specific option Logitech has.

There doesn't appear to be any Home button functionality, but alt-tab lets you switch between apps. Battery life is great and the keys have a really nice action.

Hmm might be worth a try then, a shame there's no home function, I thought perhaps the Windows Key might double as the home key when in the Android environment.
