The Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard is the only keyboard you need to be looking into today.
It’s 2019 and we’ve come a long way from working in office cubicles on desktop computers in suits and formal wear. Today, beaches and mountains all over the world are overflowing with Digital Nomads working on their tans and their reports whenever they please.
The Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard is proof of how far we’ve come from the days when the only means of making a living was working in an office. Imagine being able to complete all your tasks without lugging a heavy laptop around. All you really need these days is a smartphone and a compact keyboard like the Microsoft Foldable Keyboard.
With a smartphone, a portable keyboard, and an internet connection, Digital Nomads can work from anywhere in the world.
Most, if not all Digital Nomads travel light and that’s what makes the Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard perfect for the modern day worker. It’s less than an inch thick and takes up about as much space as a smartphone when folded up. At first glance, the Universal Foldable Keyboard by Microsoft could pass as an oversized wallet or a skinny external hard drive.
Microsoft’s take on the portable keyboard is not as compact as other similar products in the market. When opened up, the keyboard spans 11.6 inches. That makes it even longer than a MacBook Air’s built-in keyboard. But, that doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing. Unlike working with smaller, more compact portable keyboards, its size makes it easier to use. It has a wide gap down the middle where it folds and that’s just about the only thing users have to get the hang of. Smaller portable keyboards have much smaller keys making users prone to mistyping, making the adjustment period longer.
The keyboard is true to its name and works universally with tablets and phones from Apple to Android. It supports device switching for up to two devices. The device switch buttons are on the lefthand side of the top row of function keys, making for easy access.
Microsoft proves that they have Digital Nomads in mind, creating a keyboard that can withstand minor water-related accidents. With its spill-proof feature, you don’t have to worry about the working right on the shores of the best beaches in Bali.
Connecting the keyboard to your device is easy and many agree that it goes on without a hitch. Unfortunately, when the time comes that you have to use it again, you will be made to connect to it again. For some reason, this Microsoft keyboard doesn’t like getting attached.
But, despite having to regularly connect to the keyboard, the overall user experience makes up for it.
It’s sleek, spill-resistant and ergonomic design make it the best foldable keyboard to bring on all of your work and leisure trips.
