If you’re having trouble or you are struggling to type on your tablets in the class-room and dont wanna take a laptop to class, MIcrosoft has something just for you.
Nowadays it is impossible to say that typing is accurate and fast on tablets. With a minimum physical feedback and no give to the digital keys we’re pressing, it makes it difficult to know if you’re hitting the right “key”.
Microsoft’s answer to that problem is not to just tell people to use a laptop instead of their tablet, but instead buy its new, foldable Bluetooth keyboard for just $100. Unveiled earlier this year and now available for purchase, the device has physical keys (though we’re not told what type of switch)
It features wireless connectivity, and a rechargeable battery that lasts for up to three months at a time. To make sure it stays charged for that long, it magnetically folds up and turns off to conserve power.
It’s design is portable, light and thin, measuring just 5 millimeters at its widest point. It’s also spill resistant, which should give users enough time to clean it off if they get caught in the rain or knock over a glass — but don’t expect to be typing in the ocean with this one.
Wait, there’s more to the story, it’s compatible with Android, iOS and Windows, so it should work on whatever device you have. Those with multiple devices however will find it easy to switch between, since each keyboard can be paired with up to two devices at once, and can be switched between at the touch of a button. For my money their layout and key designs beat Logitech any day.
For business travelers and those customers who want the thinnest a
and lightest setup possible, it’s certainly an attractive proposition.
What do you think about it? Do you think this keyboard will catch on?
