One keyboard to rule them all

By

Sorry Frodo, but we don’t need many rings — sorry, keyboards  to rule them all. Windows, macOS, iOS, Chrome, and Android (and Linux et al.) will all work the Logitech K780 .

While the Logitech K780 could be taken to be a portable device, it has a full-sized keyboard, numeric keypad, dual function and number keys, and pretty good "PerfectStroke" concave keys. It works over a 10m Bluetooth range or via the unifying receiver. It will even act as a tablet or smartphone stand.

Battery life from the two AAA batteries is rated at 24 months, and it has auto on/off. Because it is 100% HID (Human interface device) compatible, it will work with any reasonably modern device as long as it has USB drivers.

Art O Gnimh, global director of keyboards at Logitech, said, “When it comes to typing we can create a document quickly and comfortably on the computer, but when answering a text message on the phone we’re limited to what our two thumbs can do. Now with the K780 Multi-Device, you can type comfortably at desktop speed on all the devices that you use at your desk, seamlessly switching between them with the touch of a button.”

An integrated rubber slot securely cradles a variety of mobile devices at a perfect reading angle, from smartphones to the 12” tablet (iPad, Samsung, Surface). These will not tip over. The keyboard is slim and solidly built, designed to look good in a modern home or office environment.
