Brydge releases its Surface Pro-matching keyboard dock to the US market
Consumers looking for a new and different keyboard dock for their Microsoft Surface Pro device now have a new option to consider. Brydge claims that slotting one of these tablets into its 12.3 Pro+ accessory converts it into "a genuine laptop-like device". This OEM also asserts that the third-party attachment is designed to match this series in terms of esthetics.
The Brydge 12.3 Pro+ fits the 4, 5/2017, 6/2018 or 7 generations of the device in question. It is described as having been made in partnership with Microsoft itself, and is thus the only third party keyboard dock certified as "Designed for Surface" by the Redmond giant. The accessory boasts backlit keys, Bluetooth 5.0 and a "precision" touchpad to go with this official approval.
The new optional Surface Pro keyboard comes in Silver or Black colors. Both of these are available at Best Buy from now, although the second option can only be bought online. It is priced at US$150, with an extended holiday return period (correct at time of writing).
Brydge has also announced that the Surface Go- and Pro X-compatible versions of the 12.3 Pro+ are coming to join it on the US market. They are called the 10.5 Go+ (with a Silver colorway) and SPX+ (Platinum), and will become available from December 2020 and January 2021 respectively.
