K481 Wireless Keyboard with Multi-Touch Pad

The packaging for the K481 is just large enough to house the keyboard and the padded envelope and not much more. It does display features like its 10 meter range, the 2.4GHz signal used, power saving mode and the hot keys.

The sides of the packaging offer the specs of this tiny wireless keyboard and have warnings on the right about the batteries shipped with the keyboard.

The back starts off with features on the left with another image of the keyboard on the right. At the bottom it has images of some of the features as they are found on the board, while on the right is a few of the multi-touch gestures used on the touch pad.

The K481 is now out of the box and at this moment I realized I also received the EU layout keyboard. There are some strange symbols for what I am used to but memory served well enough to traverse the board correctly. On the right are media keys above the multi-touch mouse pad that also have a right and left click button below it.

On the back of the board there are four rubber feet, but in reality since the keyboard will likely be on your lap most of the time you use it, the more important feature back here is the battery door that you insert a pair of AAA batteries into to get the K481 powered up.

There is a USB 2.0 receiver for the keyboard to send the 2.4GHz signal from the keyboard to the PC along with a pair of batteries included from ARCTIC.

Inside of the guide for the keyboard you get multi-lingual sections. Each section shows how to install the batteries and then you need to plug in the USB receiver and power on the keyboard. There is also a list of the seven gestures you will need to learn to make better use of the multi-touch pad.
