Microsoft’s Ultra Portable Keyboard is designed to work with multiple operating systems
Microsoft is launching PC-compatible Xbox One controller along with a Bluetooth keyboard that can instantly switch between three different devices.
The controller is almost identical to the one that ships with the Xbox One console – in fact it could even be used with the device if a user so wished.
The Ultra Mobile Keyboard, meanwhile, is designed to wirelessly connect to all manner of devices – from Android tablets to Apple phones to Windows PCs – and even allows users to switch between multiple devices at the flick of a switch.
The device also makes smart use of its protective cover – slide it off and it automatically switches on, with the cover doubling as a stand for your device. Put the cover back on and the keyboard powers down.
The keyboard will be available next month in the US for $80, though there’s no details of an Irish release as of yet.
The controller is priced in the US at $60, which is the same as a dedicated Xbox One controller.
