Microsoft announces PC Accessories; Universal Mobile Keyboard supports iOS, Windows and Android Tablets
Microsoft is not just a software giant, but also offers several PC accessories. The company has just added such ones to its portfolio but this time one of them comes with Android and iOS device support, interesting right?
The accessories include new Microsoft Arc Touch Bluetooth mouse, a simpler wireless mouse, an Xbox One video game controller and Universal Mobile Keyboard . And you guessed it right?, yes the keyboard is coming with Android and iOS support.
The Bluetooth keyboard comes with detachable cover that doubles as stand for a tablet and protection cover for keys. The keyboard is built with a rechargeable battery that can run up to 6 months. The company claims that a 10 minutes of charging will give you enough juice for 8 hours.
As I said, the device comes with iOS and Android support apart from Windows devices. There is a special key that lets you toggle the keyboard between three major operating systems, Windows, iOS and Android with just a flip of a key. The keyboard also features media buttons at the top of the keyboard and a home button instead of a Windows key which lets you go back to any of the three OS home screen.
The Microsoft Bluetooth keyboard measures 0.47 inches and weighs in at 12.9 ounces. Microsoft’s Universal Mobile Keyboard is priced at $80.
