Mobile Bluetooth keyboards generally come in one of three types. You’ve got the solid slab, you’ve got the ones that fold in half, and you’ve got those squishy rubbery mats. The problem with the last one is that they don’t offer the same kind of tactile feedback as proper keys. When we saw the original LG Rolly keyboard last August, we thought it was weird and awesome, but it was not without its flaws. Now, LG has rolled out (terrible pun intended) the new and improved LG Rolly 2. For starters, it’s got another row of keys.

One of the problems with the original Rolly is that it only has a total of four rows of keys, including the bottom row for the space bar. That meant that the number row had to be integrated with the top row (QWERTY), making it more difficult for touch typists to type out some digits. With the Rolly 2, that is no longer a concern. There’s a proper number row there, which doubles as a standard function key row too.

There’s also this new flappy tab on the bottom to assist with rolling out the keyboard, the ability to pair with up to three Bluetooth devices (up from two) at the same time, and a smartphone “dock” at the top. One AAA battery should provide enough juice to keep you typing on the go for three and a half months. Of course, the other difference is that the Rolly 2 rolls up into a pentagon, rather than a square.

The LG Rolly 2 is listed at 129,000 KRW (about $112) with no word of whether the company plans on selling it outside of its home market of South Korea.
