I'm working in a QA team and we are testing a website. We are supporting all touch devices and smartphones.

My question: is there an easy solution so that we could write to those devices from your PC's (some specific URL's sometimes need to be imputed, which takes a lot of typing).

I've tried: 1. Sending the links through emails and opening them; 2. Looking at some applications (like http://wifimouse.necta.us/).

Is there a better way? Bluetooth, Wifi keyboards? Or some other.

The solution would be based on the devices. In most cases a bluetooth keyboard should work ( ipad for instance ) others that soluton won't work. The solution also likely will be platform dependent. I suggest you ask on android.stackexchange.com and apple.stackexchange.com with specific questions towards the platform. –  Ramhound Sep 24 '13 at 13:43

The great majority, if not all, of Apple and Android mobile devices will pair with a Bluetooth keyboard. A PC will do this as well if it has a Bluetooth adapter installed.

I've never heard of a Wifi keyboard.

I've had no problems using the Apple Bluetooth keyboard on any Android device, or my PC, other than that shift+space on the keyboard doesn't output a space (ANNOYING IF YOU ARE TYPING LIKE THIS which may not be a bad thing...)

However, you may look into using QR codes for URLs which wouldn't require any typing at all.

"I've never heard of a Wifi keyboard." made me think of the note on things-that-use-WiFi-but-don't-tell in this answer. Not saying such a thing exists or not, just a little reference for completeness' sake. –  Michael Kjörling Sep 24 '13 at 14:24
