Logitech has announced plans to launch a version of its Keys-To-Go portable keyboard for Windows devices later in April for $69.99. The Keys-To-Go keyboard was previously released for iOS products, but now Logitech is offering a version of the accessory that will work with both Android and Windows devices.
The small keyboard uses Bluetooth to connect to smartphones and other supported devices. Here's what Logitech has to say about this new Keys-To-Go keyboard.
The keyboard's thin and light form makes it easy to slip into your purse, beach bag or coat pocket without taking up precious space or weighing you down. The Logitech Keys-To-Go is wrapped in a water-repellent FabricSkin that helps protect the keyboard from spills and dirt, so it easily wipes clean and survives drops. It's durable enough for a variety of situations – indoors or outdoors.
The Logitech Keys-To-Go also has well-spaced keys for comfortable typing, despite being incredibly thin, and a row of Android and Windows shortcut keys for added convenience and productivity. This version for Android and Windows also includes a portable stand, which allows for easy typing on a smartphone. The portable stands attaches to the keyboard and holds your smartphone at an upright position.
Windows Phone 8.1 with Update 1 currently does not support Bluetooth keyboards. However, Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, found in newer devices like the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL, are supposed to support the standard. Likewise, Windows 10 for phone will also have native support for Bluetooth keyboards, meaning most newer devices should be able to use this device later this year.
Will this be better or worse than Microsoft's recently announced $99 foldable Bluetooth keyboard coming in a few months? Guess we will have to just wait and find out.
