We're travelling without our mh and haven't bought a laptop so really struggling with the tablet keyboards. I e see bt keyboards but wondering how well they work in practice with android's?

I've got one which works well with my android tablet. No reason for them not to work - assuming the tablet has Bluetooth of course! :)

Really like Bluetooth keyboards.

I have a Logitech K380 keyboard, paired with a M590 Mouse that I use with my PC and my tablet (can switch between the two on each device so really useful). Noticed both of these are on offer with Amazon today.

I also have this one, which I carry if travelling lite but still may need to do some work on tablet. Nowhere near as good as the Logitech, but small and does the job when needed:

Oh no!!
I didn’t even know a Bluetooth keyboard for tablets was a thing. That’s gonna cost me now I’m educated ☹
I’m Apple so this is a starting point:Apple shop

edit: thread updated while I was ‘away’.
Wissel also has a good starting place ?

More than toes wet now!
If space \ size is a constraint maybe have a look at one of these.
I use one with Raspberry Pi and it's good.
Says it does Android as well.
BTW there are various different models \ options out there some of which are wifi rather than bluetooth.

Android not apple.
The Bluetooth keyboards would usually be OS agnostic.
At the Apple shop it looks like the Smart Keyboards are wired.

The Logictech & Magic keyboard ones on display are Bluetooth.
But other shops will usually have a lower mark-up and the apple shop was just a starting reference point for me... ;)
