Those look kinda clunky to me. You might want to look at the Logitech 
diNovo Edge, which is a wireless (bluetooth) rechargeable battery 
powered keyboard, with mouse.

It is quite a bit smaller, physically than the others you listed, and is 
very thin and light.It is almost like holding a clipboard since it is so 
thin. The keys however felt very nice.

It comes with a USB bluetooth dongle so it should wokj invisibly in 
Linux. The 'mouse' is actually a 'touchdisk' in the bottom right corner. 
I held one of these and the touchdiskis exactly under where your thumb 
falls if you are holding it at the bottom right corner.
This is very definitely a 'keyboard from the lazy-boy'  keyboard that 
you can sit with in your lap. Would not entirely replace a remote but 
fills a definite gap.

This link is tigerdirect in Canada, so the price is in loonies...
