Microsoft releases a keyboard that works on Android and iOS

first_imgMicrosoft has released a new keyboard called the Universal mobile keyboard and it works with Android, iOS and Windows devices. It is actually quite similar to the recently released Logitech K480 keyboard. The keyboard also has a Bluetooth key, which allows the user to switch between Android, iOS, and Windows modes.The most impressive bit about the keyboard is that it sports dedicated keys for Android and a CMD key for Apple users, so that people can seamlessly use shortcuts found in the three differing ecosystems. Notably, there is no dedicated Windows key.The keyboard also provides a cradle so that one can securely place ones device.Microsoft claims the battery will provide 6 months of usage on a single charge and in 10 minutes one can obtain an entire day’s usage.The keyboard will be available on October for $79.95, but this is a US release date and there is no word when this product will come to India.Clearly, Microsoft is taking CEO Satya Nadella’s platform agnostic “mobile first and cloud first” strategy to heart, where it develops software and hardware for everyone, not just its own ecosystem.last_img
