Logitech has just launched the new K780 wireless keyboard that can not only be used with your computer but also with your smartphone and tablet as well at the press of a button.
The K780 is a full six row keyboard with functions keys and shortcuts that work with Macs and PCs, iOS, Android and Windows 10 devices.
The layout of the keyboard is familiar no matter what device or operating system you’re using with some keys having two labels to make this crossover even easier.
The circular keys are large and responsive so typing is comfortable and also virtually silent.
There’s also a dedicated number pad on the right side as well.
Along the top edge is a rubber slot that allows you to conveniently place your mobile devices at the right angle. There’s even enough room to fit in a 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
Users can link up to three devices via Bluetooth to the K780 wireless keyboard at the same time.
On mobile devices, it simply a matter of finding the K780 in your Bluetooth settings.
On a computer without Bluetooth, the keyboard can connect via a tiny Unifying USB dongle which included with the product.
The three beige keys on the top left corner of the keyboard make it easy to instantly switch between your paired products.
In the Tech Guide review of the K780 wireless keyboard we had it linked to our 27-inch iMac as well as to a 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the iPhone 6S Plus.
On the mobile devices, we were able to use the Logitech K780 keyboard instead of the devices’ touchscreens for faster email replies and text messaging.
Before, when we received a message on our mobile without the keyboard, our focus was shifted to that product and away from our computer while we typed out a reply.
But know, with the K780, we could flick the switch to pair with the mobile again and fire off a reply using the keyboard before switching back to the computer and the task at hand.
For us it made managing our multiple devices a lot easier and provided a new way to multi-task without being too distracted.
The keyboard is powered by two AAA batteries but thanks to the power-saving idle mode and an on/off switch, you’ll get 24-months of battery life.
If you want to manage multiple devices and have an excellent keyboard for your computer at the same time – the Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard is the product for you.
It is priced at $149.95 and available now.
