Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard hands-on


Along with the two Lumia mid-rangers it brought to MWC 2015, Microsoft unveiled a brand universal accessory that looks stylish and works with Android, iPhone and Windows devices: the Microsoft Unversal Foldable Keyboard.

An extremely lightweight and compact design that folds in two, the Microsoft Unversal Foldable Keyboard bears some resemblance to the already excellent keyboard cover for the Surface family of Microsoft tablets. Having the capability to fold in two, however, makes it much more easier to put this one in your backpack (or a large jacket pocket) and just carry it around with you whenever you need to type a longer email or something more on your mobile device, be it a phone or a tablet.

The layout of the keyboard is full QWERTY with large buttons, but it takes some getting used to because of the split right in the middle. The keys are flat and do provide some tactile feedback (less than on a regular keyboard, of course), which is nice.

The keyboard connects via Bluetooth (you can pair two devices to it) and it comes with a battery that provides as much as three months of battery life, so you don't need to worry about charging it often at all.

The new Microsoft Unversal Foldable Keyboard price is set at $100 and it should arrive on store shelves in the very near future.
