Microsoft Surface Keyboard

Microsoft’s new Modern Keyboard “hides” a fingerprint sensor between its keys

Last October, along with the revelation of Surface Studio and the Surface Book i7, Microsoft presented some interesting accessories including the Surface Keyboard and Surface Mouse included as standard with its powerful desktop.

So, we know that the company based in Redmond is not new in this segment of the market and now presents another interesting bet in the market of peripherals with a laptop and integrates a couple of new features that many users will appreciate.

Sensor not so hidden traces

The new Microsoft Modern Keyboard is virtually identical to the Surface keyboard, but with the fundamental difference that it integrates a fingerprint sensor “hidden” in the second Windows key located on the right side of the keyboard. Of course, you can use it to log in to Windows 10 or to websites with the help of Windows Hello.

On the other hand, its second new feature is the possibility of using a cable to connect with some device instead of the usual wireless connection. When connected via Bluetooth, it offers a range of up to 15 meters in free field or 7 meters in an office environment. By the way, it is compatible, in addition to Windows 10, 8 and 8.1, with macOS (10.10 and higher), iOS (8.1 and higher), and Android (4.4.2 and above).

Finally, it is made of aluminum and incorporates a rechargeable battery that offers up to 2 months of autonomy with a single charge, as we read on the company’s website.

The price of the Morden Keyboard is $129 and will be available from the Microsoft online store, although its date of release is not known, so it is read “very soon” in the store.
