Be sure to select the right basket when at the checkout so your codes are applied. There should be a drop down list next to where it says current view. Make sure to select UK Employee Purchase Scheme and once the page has reloaded, add the keyboard to your basket/list and then your vip code to see the discount applied. If you are on UK Home & Home Office, the discount will not be applied.

I went for the 8 in the end, as it looked like it be paying close to £100 extra for the keyboard for the 11.

Has anyone had any luck with this device and Miracast?
#3
I haven't tried miracast on it yet. Sorry.
#4
Got a measy Miracast dingle from futeko. It's not spectacular to be honest. Maybe good enough for presentations nowhere near good enough for media/gaming.

Are these massively better than the standard bluetooth keyboard that are half this price?

The keyboard being bluetooth will work with any bluetooth enabled PC however the cover will only fit the Dell Venue Pro 8.

Toshiba encore is 213x136x10.7mm
Dell Venue Pro is 216X130x9mm
plus different connector positions so folio case is unlikely to be usable but all hardware accessories should use the same drivers as they are both Windows 8 and bluetooth is a standard in its own right (independent of hardware manufacturer that makes use of it).

Instead of Venue 8 I went for VOYO-A1 mini instead, the VOYO is 205 x125 x 8.9mm while the Dell is 216 x 130 x 9 mm, I know it wouldn't be a complete fit but would this case still be useable?

I am worried about that the voyo A1 as it described.

I've only used this so I can't compare it to any other. But it certainly does feel solid to me and works very well. I liked the slim design, that's why I was holding out for a deal.

The case will definitely be loose. I had a case for the venue 8 which I bought off amazon (I believe it was a Kamor). That itself was a bit of a tighter fit compared to the original folio. Either way both cases I've owned, had a snug enough fit. Only gripe with the Kamor case was the stand and with enough pressure it'd collapse. Whereas dell's ones folds into a flap at the back for the stylus.

I think the main problem will be the length. It might just manage the width and depth. But I doubt it'll be good enough for the length. Either way, if you just want the keyboard you can try sell the case on Amazon or eBay and then try use the money earned to by a case that'll fit the shield?

This is going to sound like im an idiot. but measuring the length using a measuring tape it comes out as 8.55 inch for the shield dunno why... might get it and see

I received my tablet and keyboard a few days ago, and I'm really impressed with it.

The only thing that I'm still trying to work out, is if there is any way to right click with a keyboard shortcut?

Most keyboards generally have a right click button next to the Alt Gr key, but this doesn't appear to be the case.

Has anyone else had any luck with this?


I realise that I can press and hold on the touch screen, but that sometimes brakes my workflow when I'm typing quickly/working in the desktop interface.

Any help would be appreciated.
