The Anne Pro 2 is a wireless sixty percent mechanical keyboard also known as poker size keyboard. It's a tiny keyboard and it might not be for you especially if you need dedicated arrow keys or nav cluster keys like page up and page down.
As Tae Keyboards puts it, this is a 60% keyboard, having just the main area of the keyboard, with 61 keys. But don't worry, just as always, we have all the other keys and functions packed onto other layers. Many people like 60% keyboards for their super compact size, and having everything in close reach. But that same trait can be a negative to others who prefer dedicated keys, such as dedicated arrow keys. For more info about the layout, read the full review of the Anne Pro 2 at Tae Keyboards.
The keyboard can also be used in wired and wireless bluetooth mode and comes packed with a solid builtin rechargeable battery. I think it's one of the best keyboards to be coupled with a tablet as the keyboard is super high quality, wireless, and exceptionally portable.
Below is a reference of all the extra commands you can activate by pressing down the function key Fn and hitting the appropriate key. Keep in mind that the Anne Pro 2 has two Fn keys and it's fully programmable by downloading the ObinsKit from Obins Lab. There's also a tap layer that you might want to activate on some of the modifier keys from ObinsKit. For example, some users like to have their right shift, fn keys, and control be used as dedicated arrow keys when tapped. The capslock key can also be setup to be the FN1 or FN2 keys from ObinsKit.
