Microsoft Announces Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000, Carpal Tunnel Cases Sure To Drop

The lack of a physical keyboard on tablets is both inconvenient and can take a toll on our hands and wrists. To alleviate these issues, Microsoft announced a new mobile wireless keyboard, the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000.

As the name suggests, this keyboard uses Bluetooth to connect with a mobile device instead of using a dongle or cable, which is a most welcome feature. The Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000 features a Comfort Curve design that should make typing a more comfortable and healthy experience when on the go, and it supports Windows, iOS, and Android devices.

This is a full-size keyboard, so it won’t exactly fit in your pocket, but at 13.9 x 6.54 inches (and just 0.62 inches thick), it will fit neatly into any laptop bag.

The Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000 is now available for $49.95.

With tablet purchases expected to increase 81 percent from now until 2015, laptops and tablets have become essential technology tools both at work and home, and often our fingers and wrists suffer especially when confined to an on-screen keyboard.

Today, Microsoft Hardware offers a more comfortable keyboard experience with the new Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000 — the perfect balance of portability and comfort for both tablet and laptop users. Featuring an ergonomist-approved Comfort Curve design, the Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000 promotes a more natural wrist posture whether you’re typing from your office cube, the couch or your favorite café. The keyboard’s comfort does not compromise its portability because its slim design makes it lightweight and convenient to carry — just throw it in your bag and you’re off!

Whether you’re searching for the latest music, taking notes in a meeting or just catching up on email, make sure you’re getting things done comfortably.
