If the K400 is bulkier than you'd like, you could also consider a
remote-sized keyboard like the Rii Touch N7
(http://www.loftek.us/product_view.asp?Categoryid=43&id=166) or one of
the many similar models. I have the N7, and although I wouldn't want
to type for very long with it, it works fine for occasional web use
and administration tasks.
