While we were busy chasing Android and Google, Microsoft became cool. Microsoft recently unveiled a new keyboard inspired by the surface pro 3 keyboard which is actually foldable.
Further, Microsoft unveiled the keyboard at the Mobile World Congress(MWC) which is going on in Barcelona.
Foldable Keyboard From Microsoft is Amazing
Microsoft calls it a “Universal Foldable Keyboard” which can be used with devices running on Android, Apple’s iOS and of course on Windows 8.1 and previous generation devices.
Universal Foldable Keyboard is the perfect travel companion or your best office buddy, its ultra-thin, lightweight, compact design and you can carry it easily wherever you are going and helps you complete your work faster on a tablet or a smartphone.
Taking down notes, writing a diary or whatever you wish to write on your smartphone or tablet is very neat and fast using the Microsoft’s Foldable keyboard. It is a great device for users who have plenty to write using their smartphones, who always try to find better android or iOS keyboards which can help them speed up replying to an endless loop of emails.
System Requirements To Use Microsoft Foldable Keyboard
Compatible with tablets and smartphones running one of the following operating systems:
- Windows 8, 8.1.
- Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2.
- Apple’s iOS 7-8.1.
- Android 4.3-5.0.
You can simultaneously pair it with virtually any two mobile devices—an iPad, iPhone, Android devices, Windows tablets, and Windows Phone.
Then instantly switch between them with a single touch. Set up in a second just open it to turn it on and connect. Then you’ll enjoy fast, comfortable typing on a full-sized keyboard rather than struggle on the small touchscreen of your smartphone. Power through emails, edit a proposal or instant message with friends. When you’re done, simply close it to turn it off and you’re ready to go.
The keyboard is water repellent keyset and fabric helps protect against accidents. It connects easily to multiple devices using Bluetooth and has an inbuilt battery which can be charged and has a long battery life up to 3 months.
Price and Availability
Microsoft has set the price at $99(Rs. 6000) for the foldable keyboard which according to me is a little higher for the developing countries and budget buyers if Microsoft can
