On Tuesday Microsoft has revealed a new product. The Microsoft new keyboard is their latest device that was designed to be compatible with all the important operating systems, including Windows, Android and iOS.
To use the Microsoft new keyboard you need to turn on the Bluetooth mode called Universal Mobile Keyboard. The new device has a special key, one which looks a little like a chiclet, and also the keyboard features a switch for changing the operating system. Basically you can choose which OS you want to use just by turning on this switch. The Microsoft new keyboard has a rechargeable battery that can last up to six month after one single charge, at least that’s what Microsoft says.
The new keyboard also comes with an integrated stand that you can detach at anytime, allowing you to position the tablet anywhere you like. The Microsoft new keyboard will be available in October and it will cost $79.95. You can find it at the Microsoft stores and other specialized retailers.
Suzanne Choney, Microsoft spokesperson explained:
“People frequently find they have a mixture of operating system platforms, resulting in them having to carry different accessories for each device. Microsoft’s new Universal Mobile Keyboard helps address that.”
