Microsoft’s Universal Mobile Keyboard Plays Nice With Windows, iOS, Android

Microsoft is no stranger to making keyboards—it’s made PC keyboards for many years—but it’s now making a push into cross-platform mobile keyboards. Case in point: The new Universal Mobile Keyboard is an $80 keyboard that works with iOS, Windows, and Android.

This keyboard tailors itself to each of the three OSes with the flip of a switch, and it comes with a stand that props up your phone or tablet as you work. The keyboard itself detaches from the stand so you can place it a comfortable distance from your device’s screen, and the whole thing folds up, so it’s effectively its own case.

The Universal Mobile Keyboard costs around $80, and should ship in October.
