Warning - Kit / Kondor Slim Bluetooth Keyboard KBSLBKNK - major design flaw
Just a heads up that there is a problem with the Kit bluetooth keyboard distributed by Kondor. The shift key does not operate correctly. The only way to achieve capital letters is by enabling caps lock then disabling it. there is NO way to produce symbols which require the shift key, using the keyboard.
I emailed Kondor about this and they have replied saying they are aware of the problem. They have said they are hoping to have a fix in the next week or so and that they are waiting for parts. I'm not sure how parts will help those who've bought the keyoard, are we meant to open it up and replace internal components? I had been hoping it might be something that can be reprogrammed via USB. So mine will be returned to Tesco - involving a two hour round trip.
So just a warning, as these devices are all over the country in Tesco and probably other stores too. Apart from this problem, the keyboard is reasonable quality, but some of the key mappings are a bit peculiar - I would have been able to live with the odd quirk, though. Not lack of a shift function!
