As you know, I'm also a big fan of accessories that make it easier for us to be Mobile, in the widest range of situations and circumstances possible. So products that help support our mobility by being built ruggedly and with integrity, and accessories that are highly compactable and portable, always trip my radar.
Add to my list of highly useful gadgets: The Jorno. The world's smallest, folding Bluetooth keyboard.
This looks like a fabulous product, available over on Kickstarter. Go check it out over there to get the best deal.
This is a great peripheral, that you can take anywhere with you, and with ease! It's nice to have a ultra-portable keyboard option for the folks that won't want to be bound and comitted to a keyboard case. It's a great find for anyone who wants the luxury of an external keyboard, but without the bulk. From campers and backpackers, to moms on the go, to travelling business folk and students with so much to carry already, this keyboard is something that should definitely be considered.
The Jorna, miniature, portable keyboard is available now, at Kickstarter, for $80.00, which is a killer deal, considering it'll retail for $120.00 assuming it gets funded.

Introducing Jorno, World’s Smallest Folding Mobile Bluetooth Keyboard
Pocketable, five-way folding keyboard unleashed on Kickstarter, to deliver an unparalleled Bluetooth typing solution for mobile devices
Los Angeles, CA – September 19, 2012 – The Jorno team, innovative developers of input productivity solutions for touchscreen handheld devices, is thrilled to unleash its creation, the Jorno keyboard.
Jorno serves as an on-the-go solution for typing on a variety of mobile devices. This pocketable keyboard is the size of your palm when folded, measuring in at 7.6mm for a clean and modern design. It folds down five ways, unlike any other competitor on the market, and easily fits into your pocket or purse.
By transforming your iPhone®, iPad®, or Android™ device into a fully functioning laptop, users can enjoy the freedom of easily writing emails, taking notes in class, or working on other assignments from virtually any location. Jorno also comes equipped with a detachable cradle to securely hold your device in landscape or portrait mode for the most practical and productive user experience. The cradle is designed to support phones as well as mini- and full-size tablets. Jorno pairs via Bluetooth to deliver convenient connectivity capabilities, and also guarantees compatibility with a wide array of devices.
The Jorno keyboard also has an intelligently rigid design, so it won’t collapse as users are typing on their lap. The built-in rechargeable battery lasts an entire month to deliver maximum usage time without concern for losing power.
“We are incredibly excited to introduce a mobile keyboard to the market, which offers such a unique and essential design that has yet to be created,” said Scott Starrett, CEO and Founder, Jorno. “We are passionate about this innovation and are certain it is the next big thing in the mobile productivity arena.”
Jorno has garnered a number of prestigious industry awards, including an Engineering Design and Innovation Award from the Consumer Electronics Show.
The revolutionary Jorno is now live on Kickstarter. Additional information can be found at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jorno/jorno-the-pocketable-folding-bluetooth-keyboard.
