Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard Features Ultra-thin, Lightweight Design

If you are a frequent traveler who uses a tablet computer extensively for work or just love to operate the smartphone on the go for blogging and accessing social media and have found it annoying to type in the crammed-up on-screen keyboard, well, the new Microsoft designed Universal Foldable Keyboard may be the right product for you. The bluetooth-enabled keyboard works with all Android devices, Windows Phones and tablets as well as iOS powered iPhones and iPads. It's the design that has been rethought while launching a portable keyboard. Microsoft researchers have brought an ultra-thin and super compact design to the tablet with the new foldable keyboard.

We all have one time or the other found that typing on the small touch screen keyboard gets uncomfortable if you are typing in a lot of content. Not only is it slow, but it's also prone to typing mistakes and editing the text is a hassle. As smartphones and tablets get thinner by the day, here is a product from Microsoft that's not only incredibly thin at 11.5 mm thickness when folded (and just 5mm thin when opened), but also really lightweight. The built-in rechargeable battery is said to last about three months in use on a single charge.

Thanks to Bluetooth pairing, the Foldable Keyboard gets set up two any device in seconds and what we really love is the fact that if the user pairs the keyboard with any combination of two compatible devices, he can quickly switch between them with one touch. Last but not the least on the feature highlights list is the durable design. The keyboard is designed to be spill-resistant, hence you won't have to panic if you spill the coffee on it on your next round of meeting over gadgets.

    It does seem to be a fascinating gadget. However, there are some cons associated with the product. You are bound to use it over a solid and flat surface. Hence it you are travelling in a local buse/train, you may find it challenging to move your fingers over the pad. Secondly, there is a magnetic strip running in the middle of the keyboard which can puzzle a typist, especially an expert one. Overall, the product is only of use for emergency purposes. Resetting the product to lower prices will do justice.
