Microsoft unveils a foldable Bluetooth keyboard

Microsoft unveiled a small, foldable keyboard today, designed to be mobile and connect instantly with devices.

Dubbed the "Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard", it's designed to be cross-platform and connect via Bluetooth to, supposedly, any device. The company barely mentioned it on stage, but our very own Andy Weir is in Barcelona and will have a chance to test it out and see how well it does.

An interesting aspect that needs pointing out is that the keyboard was mentioned to be compatible not only with iOS and Android but with Windows 10 for phones too. This is interesting because Windows Phone never supported Bluetooth keyboard to the chagrin of many of its users.

And so far neither does Windows 10 for phones. But with this announcement it's obvious that a future build will have the necessary drivers to handle all Bluetooth devices, a point that many users will applaud.
