Brydge has announced a new line up of its popular tablet keyboards coming in 2020. New keyboards are in bound for the Surface Go and the Surface Pro X along with new wireless keyboards for Windows, a new iPad OS Trackpad and other accessories.

Brydge has been making ‘lapable’ keyboards for iPads and the Surface Pro line for a few years now and the company shows no signs of stopping. In fact, it has announced a new series of keyboards in bound for 2020. Most notable perhaps is the addition of a much-requested keyboard for the Surface Go dubbed the Brydge 10.0 Go while the new Surface Pro X will also get a Brydge keyboard but sadly it won’t arrive until 2H 2020. Also coming for Windows users are a couple of new wireless accessories including a new W-Type keyboard and W-Type Track Pad.

Among the slew of new products announced today is a new iPadOS Trackpad that is designed to take advantage of the mouse functionality built into iOS 13 for the first time. Although not a full mouse implementation like you’d find on an Android tablet (or even smartphone), it designed as an accessibility feature that any user can activate in settings. This will also be joined by a new Brydge Pro+ keyboard for iPad Pro with in-built trackpad like you can see on its Surface models to take advantage of the same functionality.

Following its acquisition of Henge Docks last year which makes vertical docks for Apple’s Macs, Brydge will be launching a new series to support the new 16-inch MacBook Pro and the redesigned MacBook Air. It will also launch revamped Henge Docks for 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook models. Also getting revamped will be Henge’s Stone Thunderbolt 3 docking stations. Featuring multiple ports, these continue to double as stands for MacBooks and will be even more user-friendly apparently. Expect to see the new Henge and Stone docks to appear in Q2.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
