Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has set a price of $79.99 for the keyboard and users can start purchasing it in October.

One can use it with Windows tablet or connect it with iPhone or even Android devices. On top of these features, the keyboard has a Home-kind of button that will redirect user to the Start menu or home screen of the respective operating system.
Universal Mobile Keyboard is designed for portability and it has a built-in stand to hold the device along with a protective cover. You can turn off the keyboard simply by closing the cover and it has a rechargeable battery that last for six month per charge.
