Microsoft unveils universal foldable Bluetooth keyboard that works with Windows, iPhones and Android


Microsoft has unveiled a brand new foldable Bluetooth keyboard that is small enough to fit in a (larger) pocket and works with iPads, iPhones, Android devices and Windows devices, naturally.

The Microsoft foldable keyboard is a great companion for those who occasionally need to type longer texts on their handset or tablet, and it could save you from having to bring a full-fledged notebook with all of its chargers.

The keyboard made a short appearance at Microsoft's MWC 2015 keynote with a short live demo of its capabilities. Expect to see it on store shelves soon.

Most consumers would probably want to spend, at most, $50 for something like this but I'm guessing it'll be more like $100.

I actually typed an essay on my phone before it wasn't fun. Wish i would have had this, would have been so much easier. You ask why i didn't go to my campus library it was 3am and i was to scared/lazy to walk more than half way across campus by myself.

Seem like a great gadget. Hope they price it attractively.

Unless Microsoft sends an update pronto, it won't work on Windows Phones until they get the HID Bluetooth profile.

Mary Jo is usually one of the few bloggers who's accurate so I'll take it as a done deal. Thanks for the link.
