There are a number of options, including:

The BlueBerry UHF reader, from Tertium Technlology, is an RFID key fob reader capable of interrogating a passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID tag from a distance of 30 centimeters (11.8 inches). It can transmit read data via a Bluetooth connection to any device equipped with that interface.

The MINI ME (RU-827-100/110), from Microelectronics Technology Inc., is an ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID reader that plugs into the mini-USB port of any compliant Android mobile devices.

Technology Solutions (UK) Ltd. offers the 1128 Bluetooth UHF RFID Modular Ruggedized Reader with 2D Imager, as well as other compact RFID readers that might meet your needs."

And UGrokIt offers a passive UHF RFID reader that can be attached to any Android or iPhone via the audio port, with a read range of six feet to 10 feet.

You can search RFID Connect for more readers that might meet your needs.
