One of the best things these days is being able to do your computing from wherever you like, even when it is inside the house. You do not want heavy devices and wires rooting you to the spot, because mobility is what this age is all about.
Attachable wireless keyboards are getting big these days, with every major manufacturer bringing out their own take on what people need at the time. The common element is that these use Bluetooth to connect to the controlled computing device, which is why there are now wires to bother with.
That is the main reason you will love the foldable keyboard from Microsoft. They have designed this to work with Android and iOS devices, and it contains a foldable structure, as well as a few tweaks over previous editions. Called the Universal Foldable Keyboard, this is their officially improved take on the famous Universal Mobile Keyboard. The latter makes use of Bluetooth connectivity to link to Windows, Android, and iOS devices.
What companies are trying to come up with, are keyboards that are compatible with not only different devices running the same OS, but also with different platforms. Since there is a huge pool of users running Windows OS, Android, and iOS on their devices, what is needed is a commonly compatible input option, which works with every major OS setup. This is one of the topics that will never grow old on Windows Live support forums.
The Foldable Keyboard, meanwhile has the same comprehensive connectivity, uses Bluetooth to link to the computing device, and can switch between devices when there is more than one being used at the time. The foldability, of course, makes this the crème de crème. When you open it up, its 11.61″ wide and 4.9″ tall, which is a bit larger than the older iteration. But fold it and you can size it down to less than the space the Mobile Keyboard takes up.
That one simply had a foldable cover for the keyboard, while this closes like a book. And the keys are water repellent too. You find discussions about the many things this will let you do, on Windows Live support forums online.
One thing this model does not have is a stand to fit the tablet device on to. The battery life is said to last at least three months on a single charge (via a micro-USB port), although this is less than the six months duration that boasted. The Universal Foldable Keyboard sells for $99.95, though this is high, considering the paltry battery backup.
