Microsoft, best known for Xbox gaming console and Windows Operating system, is also widely known for producing great looking PC peripherals.
The software giant today introduced a new wireless keyboard with integrated trackpad.
The All-in-One multimedia keyboard is primarily targeted at Smart TV users. Of course, being a multimedia keyboard, it can be connected to tablets and other connected devices.
With the latest AIO multimedia QWERTY keyboard, users can control smart TVs and set-top boxes by clicking and typing from far away.
The keyboard connects via proprietary RF connection rather than Bluetooth. It has a small USB dongle that plugs in and instantly pairs with select multimedia device.
The company says, the All-in-One Media Keyboard will work with Windows 8.1, 8, and 7; Windows RT; Mac OS X 10.7 through 10.9; and Android 4.03, 4.12, and 4.2.
SlashGear got an early hands-on with the keyboard. Here's an excerpt from the story.
"The AIO Keyboard has all the buttons you'd expect for a Windows keyboard, including Start and the various charms that Microsoft added for Windows 8. However, there are more generic volume and media playback keys too, which will be supported cross-platform".
Microsoft says the All-in-One Media Keyboard makes it super easy to access and navigate all that content from the comfort of your couch.
The new All-in-One Media Keyboard is currently available in the US ($39). There's no update as when Microsoft will release the product in India.
