Logitech reveals K810 Bluetooth Illuminated keyboard

Keyboard can pair, switch between three Bluetooth devices

Logitech has revealed a new wireless keyboard that can switch between devices on the fly. The K810 Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard can pair with up to three Bluetooth-enabled systems at the same time, and has three function keys for choosing what PC, Mac, or handheld device will work with it.

Although the layout is designed for Windows 8, it will still work with other Windows, iOS and Android systems. Made from brushed aluminum, the keys are all laser-cut and back-lit, and have built-in sensors that switches the illumination on when hands are nearby, saving power. The keyboard allows itself to be used while it recharges over USB.

The Logitech K810 Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard is due to go on sale in the US later this month at $100, and will reach stores in Europe in November.

    I was interested until I saw that stupid Windows key.
    No thanks!

    You beat me to it. That was my first impression too. Why do Window's users have to have a key with the Windows logo on it? Control, Option(or Alt) and Command are just fine and nicely generic.

    My guess is that they don't target Mac users because most of us are just going to go buy the Apple Bluetooth keyboard. Though I might have picked up several logitech models if they had a command key.

    Just use a black sharpie pen to mark out the windows logo on the command key and you're good to go.

    Logitech's product page mentions *nothing* about Mac support, but does mention iOS support.

    The fact that it is illuminated could make it a good option for using your apple TV (which is set to support bluetooth soon) in the dark for searches etc.
