Default Best Bluetooth Mini Keyboard for our SGN?

Hi, I am looking for a keyboard about 8" or so wide, to connect via Bluetooth to my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I have checked Amazon and did a quick Google, but like to know from people who are successfully pairing such device to our SGN. Thank you, S

While I admit that I haven't tried connecting this to my Galaxy Nexus yet, you might try this one. If you are willing to wait, you can likely also find a good deal on it; I ended up purchasing it (through Amazon) for less than $23 including shipping.

Thanks. On Amazon there are five options, that get decent reviews.

1) The one from HP. Which is real good. 11.2" - $42.95
http://www.amazon.com/HP-FB344AA-AC3-TouchPad-Wireless/dp/B0055QYJK6

2) There is one from Logitech - 12.3" - $49.95
http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-920-003390-Tablet-Keyboard-Android/dp/B0054L8N7M

3) One from IOGear - 9.1" - $29.99
http://www.amazon.com/IOGEAR-Multi-Link-Bluetooth-Keyboard-GKB601/dp/B0051UWEOE

4) Esky - 9.4" - $30.99
http://www.amazon.com/Esky-i9-Bluetooth-Wireless-Keyboard/dp/B005JR1H74

5) Motorola - 12.9" - $22.99
http://www.amazon.com/Motorola-Wireless-Keyboard-Retail-Packaging/dp/B004L9MBH6/


After watching some YouTube videos on these keyboards I have decided to get the Logitech 920-003390 Tablet Keyboard for Android 3.0 Plus because of the design of the keyboard, AA battery powered, special Android keys and that excellent case. If I am going to use this keyboard with a smartphone the keyboard case is a must for carrying it around.

I have a Zagg Flex, which is excellent. It's not cheap but the feel of the keys is very good and I can type quickly on it, which is not the case with many portable keyboards. It's also not as large as the Logitech and Motorola offerings, which are really too big for my taste.

There is zagflex on Amazon for about $55. It's not that much smaller, at about 10". But seems to get very good reviews. Thanks!

One downside to the Zagg is that it can only be charged with a full size USB cable, which makes it not portable with a smartphone.
