It’s that time of the year again — back-to-school time. Whether it’s your kids or you yourself, there is always a list of things to buy when going back to school. So I thought to try this sleek-looking mobile keyboard device for you to consider — the all new Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard, which is the next big product from Microsoft. It's an easy-to-use portable keyboard that has a convenient folding capability. Despite its flexibility and thin size (5 mm), Microsoft's new keyboard is very well built. This keyboard pairs up wirelessly with Bluetooth on any device on any platform, and is very easy to use once set up. The keyboard comes at a retail price of $99.95. After testing it with different devices, I found out that it makes typing much easier and faster for you when you are carrying your iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows tablets or Windows Phone. It’s light weight, compact and convenient to carry around. You just have to unfold it and it connects to your mobile device. When done, fold it back again and it shuts down. It may take some time though to get used to the split design, though. You can easily switch between your smartphone and tablet (between any two devices from above-mentioned ones) with just one touch. Other than that, it is spill resistant and best of all, you can tuck it into your bag, purse or pocket. Microsoft claims that the in-built battery can last up to three months before you need to charge again. Now you don’t have to worry about thumb or finger typing on your small device. Carry it with you with confidence for typing convenience and maybe, a bit of show off! After all, it’s a very attractive innovation from Microsoft!
