LMP Keypad Bluetooth numeric pad for Mac hits FCC

Apple’s wireless QWERTY keyboard is a useful way of cutting the cord on your desktop, but it’s not great for those doing frequent numerical entry. LMP appear to be addressing that shortcoming with their Keypad add-on, spotted clearing the FCC recently, a 28-key Bluetooth numeric keypad that snaps onto the side of the regular Apple ‘board.

One interesting touch is that the LMP Keypad has a mechanical push-through bar that controls the Apple keyboard’s power button. Press the big power button on the LMP, and it pushes through to trigger the full keyboard; the keypad itself is turned on and off with the smaller button at the side.

Power is via two AA batteries, and there are navigation shortcuts and extra function keys as well. No word on pricing or availability at this stage, but we’re guessing it’ll show up relatively soon.
