Microsoft keyboard is just mm thin
Microsoft on Wednesday announced the upcoming release of its thinnest Bluetooth keyboard to date, the Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000. At its thickest, the keyboard is only a few millimeters thicker than an AAA battery, but it also tapers down at the front. The keyboard can also be had with an optional number pad for accountants and others who need the extra input.
Comfort is a priority as the 6000 still uses the company's Comfort Curve layout that places hands at more natural positions in a split-layout design. Microsoft hasn't detailed operating system support, but the Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 and Bluetooth Number Pad will start shipping in October, priced at $90 and $45 respectively.
