Back in March we reported that Microsoft was planning to release a new flexible keyboard called Universal Foldable Keyboard. Did you get impressed? If yes, there is good news – you can now buy it.
The new Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard measures 295.1 x 125.3 x 5.75 mm (L x W x H) but when folded the length of the keyboard goes down to 147.6 mm at the expense of the thickness which doubles to 11.5 mm. It makes use of Bluetooth technology and can connect to all Bluetooth-enabled devices such as notebooks, tablets and smartphones. It can be connected to two devices at the same time but you can use only one of them at a time; the switch is made by simply using a special button.
Given that the new Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard is designed for people who travel often the question how durable the keyboard is arises. Well, Microsoft says the keyboard can withstand usage while on the go and it is also spill-resistant. When folded the outer fabric shell of the keyboard protects the keys and the internals. In addition the keyboard promises to offer up to three months of use on a single battery charge.
The new Microsoft keyboard is now available for USD 99.95 on Microsoft Store if you wish to order one.
