Microsoft’s Universal Keyboard has an Android home button, no Windows logo in sight
What’s really interesting about the Bluetooth keyboard isn’t necessarily that it supports other platforms outside of Camp Windows, it’s that it seems to focus more on Android and iOS than its own platform. First, there’s an easy button for switching between iOS, Android and Windows bluetooth modes. Second, there’s an Android home key and Apple’s typical “CMD” key. Even more interesting, there’s no Windows key at all. To our knowledge, this is the only MS-made keyboard without such a key — ever.
The new Universal Keyboard contains a battery that will reportedly last for six months on a single charge. As for the price? The keyboard will set you back $79.95 when it arrives in October.
What do you think of Microsoft’s push towards being more multi-platform friendly, both software and hardware wise? A surprisingly change, or merely a logical progression as Windows becomes less dominant in a mobile-first world?
