While Apple has always been the leading company when it comes to product design, Microsoft is slowly playing catch up and in recent years, they have come up with products that not only work great but have that zen minimalist design that Apple is well known for. Recently, Microsoft has just announced a new product that fits this perfect combination of functionality and minimalist design, the Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard.

The tablet and the smartphone has become our computing device of choice for many tasks that we previously rely on our laptop or desktop computer. While we do shoot off the occasional email on our mobile devices, they are still mainly used for content consumption. We are not very productive on our mobile devices mainly because typing on a touch screen is just not ideal.On the other hand, lugging around a full sized keyboard is not exactly an ideal solution either.

What we need is a ultra portable and lightweight keyboard that takes up very little storage space. The Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard fit the bill perfectly. It is only 5mm thick and when folded, it can easily fit inside a pocket or handbag. Despite its size, it features full sized keys with a row of dedicated number keys plus a row of media centric keys as well.

The Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard works with Windows PC, Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad and Android devices. It connects wirelessly via Bluetooth 4.0 and it can pair with 2 devices and you can easily switch between both devices with a touch of a button. Unfolding the keyboard turns it on and to switch it off, just fold the keyboard.

The built-in rechargeable battery provides about 3 months of usage on a single charge.
