Belkin’s new YouType Bluetooth Wireless Keypad looks a lot like Apple’s Magic Trackpad. But the only folks who might actually find it ‘magical’ are accountants, because Belkin trades gestures and multi-touch input for a set of numerical keys and extra shortcuts for navigating large documents.
If you’ve been bemoaning the lack of these extra keys on Apple’s shortened wireless keyboard, you probably won’t be too happy about coughing up another $69.95 for Belkin’s solution to the problem. But if your work or schooling involves endless data entry, this might seem like the deal of the century since it not only matches your existing hardware, it can also be positioned exactly where you need it. Besides, if anyone can figure out how to write it off come tax season, it’s the target audience. [Belkin via iLounge]
