Hi all because of all the dictation issues lately I've been wanting a bluetooth keyboard. Can anyone suggest one that is small enough to put in a purse. Thanks in advance.

I have the Logitech k380. It doesn't have a number pad, and it's pretty compact. It doesn't fold or anything, but it fits in most of my purses. I got it at Amazon for about $40. Works great with the phone.

Hello,
You could try the iClever try-fold keyboard. It folds up small enough to fit in a purse or in a messenger bag. It is around $30 on Amazon.

I don't know if this is helpful, but tri-fold is spelled with an I not a y.

I did some searches, and the tri-folding ones by iClever seemed to run a bit higher right now, $46.99 but the reviews are pretty solid. Though, you have to use it on a flat surface since apparently it doesn't lock open. But, the one below can also be used as a USB keyboard, not just Bluetooth. Note: I have not purchased one of these, just looking for information to share with clients.



I'm pasting the Amazon link below along with one of the reviews. I encourage reading lots of reviews and making sure they are reviews from verified ppurchases on Amazon.



https://www.amazon.com/iClever-Backlight-Tri-Folding-Bluetooth-Smartphones/dp/B018K5EJCQ


5.0 out of 5 stars<https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R3T9CO3DU22I0I/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B018K5EJCQ>This is the folding full-sized keyboard I've been looking for. (This is Model BK-05, the larger of two trifold keyboard models.)<https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R3T9CO3DU22I0I/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B018K5EJCQ>

Verified Purchase
I always have my iPad with me, but it's a pain to have to also have to pack an Apple keyboard for when I want to take meeting notes or work on documents away from home. This keyboard is lightweight, folds to a small size, and it is a full-sized keyboard with a useful row of function keys and a great feel for a touch typist. There is the option to backlight it at two light levels, three colors, for low-light situations. There is even a sweet drawstring travel pouch. This thing is small enough that there is no hesitation to throwing it into my bag even if I am not sure I will need it. I love my Apple Bluetooth keyboard, but this is the one I reach for now if I am heading out. My iPad has a case that can serve as a landscape-oriented easel, so all I have to do is set it up, unfold the keyboard (that turns it on, no buttons necessary), and start typing. There is no hesitation or Bluetooth pairing glitching or delays at all. Also, very important for a rapid touch typist, the feel of typing on this keyboard is great. I can go at great speed with no errors or sticking. The top function keys include handy ones like copy, cut, paste, select all, search, and others, a bonus. The keyboard can be used wirelessly or connected through a standard USB cable, and I have had no issues with having the charge run out while I am out using the keyboard wirelessly. If I ever do, I'll just plug an external battery into the USB port.

Highly recommended.

UPDATE FOR CLARITY: It is now late April and the keyboard -- actually 2 of them because I got one for my husband too -- has continued to be great. I am adding this update because there is some confusion as to which model is being praised here. There are actually TWO trifolding keyboard models offered by the manufacturer, and their Amazon descriptions are sometimes easy to confuse. I have tried them both, and I want readers to know that it is the LARGER trifold keyboardl, BK-05, that I am recommending. The smaller model, BK-03, is inferior in many ways: less stable, detectable lag, much harder to type many characters (it has fewer rows of keys), and not backlit. The somewhat larger size and higher price are worth it: I recommend going for the larger model, the backlit one, BK-05. (Though for some reason I have not seen that model number in the description, only on the manual that came with the keyboard.). I will attach comparison photos of the two models. I am recommending the one on top, the BK-05.

Just be careful that you don't drop it and break one of the hinges. I had a friend that did that. She can still use it but it's a bit cumbersome now.
