Microsoft just announced a new keyboard for Windows 10 devices. The new keyboard has a very minimal foot print, which is complimented by its strong and sturdy aluminum body. The hype of the keyboard is created by its inconspicuous finger print scanner housed in the Windows Key. This makes it extremely convenient for users to log in and use it with other Windows Hello compatible apps.


What we know about the New Microsoft Keyboard

  • It can be used via Bluetooth or a USB connection.
  • According to Microsoft, it is only compatible with Windows 10 devices.
  • It uses a 2.4 GHz Bluetooth signal, which translates into a maximum working distance of 33 feet.
  • Thanks to the Low Energy Bluetooth 4, the battery can last up to 4 months on a single charge.

Our Take on the Modern keyboard

Despite the higher price of $129, the keyboard lacks backlit keys, which might be a deal breaker for users, as other companies like Logitech already offers backlit keyboards that are much cheaper as well. However, none of them has the integrated finger print scanner. Having said that, the new Microsoft’s keyboard is expected to be available soon in stores.


We’ll update our review once the keyboard makes an appearance in the market.
