Microsoft intros Universal Mobile Keyboard for iOS, Android and Windows (no Windows Phone, though)
Microsoft today announced the Universal Mobile Keyboard, a brand new Bluetooth keyboard that works with iPhones, iPads, Android smartphones and tablets, and Windows tablets - transforming them into laptops (sort of).

The keyboard can be paired with up to three of the aforementioned devices at the same time, allowing you to easily switch between devices and OSes with a dedicated key. It includes a rechargeable battery which, according to Microsoft, can provide up to 6 months of usage on a single charge. Reportedly, a 10 minute charge is enough to provide power for “a full day’s work.”

The Universal Mobile Keyboard’s cover offers an integrated stand, and is detachable, allowing users to position their smartphone or tablet in a comfortable way. You can see the keyboard in action in the promo video embedded below.

Funny (or is it sad?): the Microsoft Universal Mobile Keyboard doesn’t work with Windows Phone handsets. Anyway, the keyboard will be available starting October for $79.95 via Microsoft Store and select retailers. It will be offered in two color versions: black and grey. Anyone looking forward to buying this?
