I can't recommend this keyboard enough, especially at these prices. Shipping overseas was under 2 weeks.
This is a great portable keyboard that is plug-and-play with USB-C. The keyboard and trackpad are the flagship quality that one would expect from BlackBerry. Arturo's transparent case is comfortable and the brass screw inserts are indicative of the overall quality. The PCB layout and assembly look clean and professional.
The BB Q20 was plug-and-play with my Windows 10 laptop. I increased the speed of the trackpad in Windows settings. The internet is fun and comfortable sitting back in the chair, away from the laptop's keyboard. I have a few projects in mind.
The shaped keys make typing fast and don't require looking at the keyboard. I haven't used a BlackBerry keyboard for ages. But after using the BB Q20 for about 15 minutes, and looking down at the keyboard from time-to-time, I am getting the groove back.
I love the idea and recently added Bluetooth support via an Espruino BLE board that fits nicely into the free space in the enclosure. The great i2c implementation made that really easy to do. Also added a small usb bone-shaped power bank and now have a pretty nice mobile tool for VR, AppleTV etc. Highly recommended.
This little board is great for learning CircuitPython or for tiny USB dongle type projects. I've already thrown together some code to act as a mouse using a joystick or to type a sequence of keys when inserted into a USB port.
Bought two of these and they have been very nice to work with so far. Quick to setup and get going with. Not the biggest fan of circuit python but that’s not a knock on the board just personal preference and I saw that someone made an arduino core but I haven’t had a chance to try it yet. If the usb-a version comes back in stock I’m definitely buying more.
I needed a compact MC board that plugs directly into a USB jack - Serpente exactly fits the bill. I'm using it to "trick" a PC into thinking it's getting mouse and keyboard input. My only complaint is that the documentation is a little thin. I wanted to do a little "Hello world" test varying the color of the RGB LEDs, and it took me a while to guess how to access those pins. Thankfully, the Python names matched the schematic names - thank you! If I had looked further down in the reviews I would have seen the example and saved a few minutes.
