Earlier this week, Microsoft announced a new Universal Mobile Keyboard that embraces iPads, iPhones, Android smartphones and Windows tablet that are 10mm or thinner. The new keyboard costs $79.95 and comes in two colors: black and grey. The hardware will be available in October via Microsoft’s store and select retailers.
The Bluetooth keyboard can be paired with up to three of the aforementioned devices running different operating systems at the same time. It’s actually a pretty good option for those of you who own both Apple and Android devices. The keyboard comes with a dedicated key that allows you to easily switch between devices.
Although the keyboard supports Windows tablets, the traditional Windows key/logo is not seen anywhere on the keyboard instead you will find a “Command” key. It includes a rechargeable battery that according to Microsoft can last up to six months on a single charge. The new keyboard comes with a protective cover that offers an integrated stand to allow users to position their tablets or smartphones.
