Apple seems resolute in its desire to keep us from having an Apple wireless keypad with our Apple wireless keyboards, but Satechi has a device for that. The company introduced the Satechi Slim Rechargeable Aluminum Bluetooth Keypad in GoldSilver, and Space Gray on Thursday. They look pretty spiffy to me, and the battery lasts up to 2 weeks on a charge time of 1-2 hours. They’re priced at US$39.99 and are available now.

    And this is why I still use an Apple Extended Keyboard II “hacked” with a teensy micro-controller to go full USB.

    This new “slim” keyboard does not sit well on a desk. 😉

    This is what I’ve been looking for for a long time. Looks like this will match the Magic Keyboard perfectly and it is rechargeable.

    Watching these guys try and make an appropriate numeric keypad is almost as bad as apple being brain dead and not making a keyboard with a key pad.

    So this has NO function keys. It also has no cursor or page navigation keys. You know the very things that demonstrated as being nice on the freak’n corded apple keyboard. They usually make these keypads with bad materials, wrong fonts, bad key throw different from the apple keyboard.

    Here is a dramatic re-enactment of apple and 3rd parties making wireless keyboards:
