It’s handy to have a mobile keyboard for your tablet, but wouldn’t it be great if your phone could share the love? With Logitech‘s K810, it can the Bluetooth keyboard can pair with up to three devices simultaneously, letting your smartphone, tablet and computer all share in its chiclet-style keys and brushed aluminum finish.
Switching between devices is as easy as a keystroke just tap one of the first three function keys to relay the connection. The keys are tailored for Windows 8 machines, but don’t be fooled: The keyboard is compatible with PCs, Macs, iPhones, iPads and even Android devices (version 3.0 “Honeycomb” or later).
Ever better, the K810 is backlit. If you’re thinking that translates into a short battery life, think again: a built-in sensor detects your fingers when they float over the keys, automatically bringing the backlight to life. It also adjusts to ambient light, dimming or brightening according to how much light is in the room or yard.
Logitech passed on using removable batteries in the K810, and the built-in rechargeable one is rated at 10 hours of use.
That’s pretty low compared to other wireless models, but this is a mobile keyboard, after all, and weight is big factor the K810 is just 12 ounces. There’s also an off switch to help stretch out that battery as long as possible.
The K810 goes on sale in the U.S. in October for $99.99. It’s coming to Europe in November.
