Logitech has announced the expansion of its keyboard lineup with the Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810.
Compatible with Android, iOS, and Windows devices — and a Windows 8-designed layout — this rechargeable keyboard uses Bluetooth connectivity to pair with up to three devices simultaneously.
The keyboard can connect to a PC, smartphone and tablet and easily switch among these devices with the push of a button.
“It’s increasingly common for people to use more than one device over the course of the day, and we saw an opportunity to help ease the transition among screens with the Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard,” said Mike Culver, Vice President of brand development for consumer computing platforms at Logitech.
“Using Logitech’s heritage of high quality and reliability, this keyboard combines the functionality and design people expect with simultaneous multi-device pairing, which they will appreciate.”
The thin keyboard is designed to look right at home next to all your devices with its real brushed aluminum and sleek lines, regardless if you’re working on an Android smartphone, Apple iPad tablet, or Windows 8 PC.
To increase the usability of Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 in low-light conditions, auto-adjusting illumination ensures laser-etched key characters remain bright and easy to read.
According to Logitech, the keyboard uses proximity detection to turn on the lighting when your hands approach it, and automatically dims or brightens, depending on the amount of light in the room.
Further addressing users’ need for convenience and productivity, this keyboard is USB rechargeable with 10 days of battery life on a full charge (based on varying user and computing conditions).
With its easy-to-use USB cable, you can even use the keyboard while recharging.
The keyboard also features a convenient On/Off switch, and its battery-indicator light helps you manage power so you know when it’s time to recharge.
The Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 has specific keys to help you easily navigate the new Windows 8 operating system, expected to be available later this month.
For example, its Windows 8 Start key provides a quick and easy way to get back to your Start Screen, while the App Switching function key allows you to switch quickly among your open apps.
The Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 will expectedly arrive in the U.S. in October and Europe in November of this year for a suggested retail price of $99.99.
