Face the facts. Typing an email on a mobile device with anything more than five sentences is a total pain in the ass. Apparently someone at Microsoft is sick of dealing with it. The iconic company has just released a promo video showing off the second iteration of their Universal Mobile Keyboard. And it’s awesome.
Building off the keyboard platform developed for the Microsoft Surface, they have expanded bounds to create an inciting universal mobile foldable keyboard. The 5″x 5″ (folded) device is thin enough to slip into a back pocket and the 12″ typing surface shouldn’t feel overly cramped for typical mobile use.
The typing surface is spill resistant, which is always a strong point for any piece of tech. The keyboard packs a battery capable of going three months on a single charge. But my favorite feature is it the ability to simultaneously sync with two separate devices and being able to switch between them on the fly with the press of a button. So you can reply to an email on your iPad then switch over to your Galaxy S6 and then quickly get back to your annoying group text.
The keyboard is compatible with almost any Bluetooth 3.0 capable device and is set to hit the scene this July for around a hundred bucks.
