Microsoft releases foldable keyboard for iOS and Android devices
Among numerous advantages, smartphones and tablets have one serious disadvantage. They only let their users type at a fraction of the speed that laptops or desktops with physical keyboards allow. Luckily, there’s plenty of Bluetooth keyboards dedicated for mobile devices. Microsoft is one of the companies that have them in their portfolio. Now, the Redmond-based giant has gone a step further and launched a sub $100 keyboard that can be folded in half, making it extremely portable.
The Microsoft Universal Folding Keyboard, first presented at the Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona uses Bluetooth to communicate with Android or iOS devices. It can also be used with PC’s running Windows or OS X.
Apart from the folding-in-half part, the great news is that the keyboard allows for as much as three months of operation on just one battery charge. It can be paired with two devices at the same time. They can be switched between via two buttons in the top row.
The Microsoft Universal Folding Keyboard is now available at $99.95.
