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.
