What you need to know
- Brydge has new keyboards in store for Surface devices.
- Laptop-style keyboard accessories are expected to launch in the second quarter of 2020 for Surface Pro and Surface Go.
- A Surface Pro X keyboard is expected in the second half of 2020.
Brydge already makes Surface keyboards that'll turn your tablet into a proper laptop, but it is set to grow its range significantly this year. Dropping before CES 2020 next week, Brydge announced a new set of keyboards for Surface Pro tablets, the Surface Go, and Surface Pro X (via Engadget). For desktop PCs, the company also has a new keyboard and trackpad in store as well.
The Brydge 12.3 Pro and Brydge 10.0 Go are both set to launch in the second quarter of 2020. Surface Pro X owners, meanwhile, can expect to get a Brydge Pro X keyboard in the second half of 2020.
For each device, you'll get a Bluetooth keyboard and glass trackpad surface that allows you to dock your Surface in its hinges like a laptop display. The current crop of Brydge keyboards are made out of aluminum and pack up to three months of battery life on a single charge. If you're looking for something a little more "lappable" than the Surface Pro Type Cover, then these may be the ticket.
In addition to its Surface keyboard lineup, Brydge also has some accessories in store for desktop PC users. The new W-Type keyboard and W-Touch trackpad will give you a set of wireless accessories to use at your desk. Both are expected to launch in the second quarter of 2020.
There's no pricing information available for these devices just yet. However, if you want to get an idea of what Brydge is cooking up, the current Brydge 12.3 is available for $130 for Surface Pro devices.
Transform your Surface
The Brydge 12.3 turns your Surface Pro into a laptop using an aluminum dock with a keyboard and glass trackpad.
