The Anker A7726: A Bluetooth Keyboard That Just Works

I love bargain tech finds for their low cost to high satisfaction ratio. When I picked up my Nexus 9 tablet, I was anxious to get it covered with a case. But my second concern was making it a productive powerhouse by adding a keyboard or keyboard case.  The problem was most cases were not…
