Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard

In red, my current favorite traveling keyboard: the Logitech Keys-To-Go. On top, in black, my new favorite. There is a simple reason. The Microsoft keyboard folds in half and keeps close with magnets. It also switches on and off as you unfold or fold it. You don't need to switch it off like the Logitech one, where the only design weakness is the fiddly switch.

But wait, there is more: the Microsoft keyboard connects to two devices. Like your iPhone and your iPad. Top row, left, there are two buttons. Hold one for three seconds and it goes into pairining mode. Press it once and it reconnects to a previusly paired device. Top row, far right is a key that switches the programming: Windows, Android, iPhone/iPad. That's it: one keyboard, two paired devices, three configurations.

The material is similar to the Keys-To-Go, it's also spill-proof, but it has proper keys with decent travel. The Keys-To-Go is much better than it looks. It also has physical key travel underneath it's red coat. Both are really nice, but I suspect the Microsoft one is even nicer.

They are both made for people who look at the screen. ;-)

I have the older version of the Microsoft one - pretty much the same but has a cover that folds down over it to shut it off, rather than folding across. I use it with an 8" Windows tablet and an iPhone and it's super handy and the keys are very usable. Just putting it out there because it's still for sale & is a cheaper than the newer one you like. Also supports Windows, iOS & Android & I think 3 devices. Oh, and it has a nice place to hold your phone or tablet along the top.

Only the Print-Key is missing :-)
