Microsoft Universal Mobile Keyboard review

 

If you're one to type a lot on the go, Microsoft's Universal Mobile Keyboard could be your next best friend. Tablets and phones are becoming more and more like fully-fledged computers by the day, but typing long emails on them isn't always ideal....

If you've got a long commute and you want to bat out plenty of emails on the go, you're probably tired of thumbing through your mobile's on-screen keyboard and frustrated with autocorrect. Microsoft's Universal Mobile Keyboard is small and compact, and...

Strangely, for a Microsoft keyboard that has "Universal" in the name, we found it wouldn't play nice with our Windows Phone devices, which is pretty surprising. It works fine with Windows tablets, but if you try and pair up your favourite Lumia...

If you're after a mobile keyboard for your tablet or phone and want something that's portable, sleek, discreet and still lets you type full speed ahead, Microsoft's Universal Mobile Keyboard is easily the best you can buy – if you can afford it, that is.

Microsoft Universal Mobile Keyboard – Review

 

The Bluetooth keyboard market has taken off recently, with an influx of affordable Android and Windows tablets, along with the annual iterative updated iPads. Most people I know have a tablet of some sorts. Heck I even now one guy who asked me to fix...

Overall I liked the keyboard, it was a great little, solid, versatile and dare I say it “fun to use” keyboard. The speed at which I could type was greater than I’d ever managed on other mobile Bluetooth keyboards. The only slight problem with the...

Microsoft's Universal Mobile Keyboard works with iOS, Android, Windows tablets

 

With so many Windows 8 slate-style tablets available, it's no surprise that Microsoft is now offering a rechargeable, portable Bluetooth keyboard accessory. What is surprising is that this Microsoft-branded keyboard plays up its support for both...

Microsoft is also releasing a new version of its Arc Touch Bluetooth, identical to the Surface-branded version paired with the Surface Pro tablet, but in a more generic grey color, and minus any Surface branding. That mouse will cost $69 and be...

Microsoft Universal Mobile Keyboard Review

 

The closed up restrictive Microsoft disappeared in recent years. It has been replaced by a new, open company that develops apps for iOS and Android , often faster than it does for its own Windows phone operating systems. The Microsoft Universal Mobile...

Microsoft Universal Mobile Keyboard: Functional, but awkward to use

 

Microsoft's Universal Mobile Keyboard is a sleek and mobile keyboard that builds upon the the tried and tested Wedge Mobile Keyboard, but with improved compatibility for almost any kind of mobile device. However, they might have overlooked on some of...

Detachable cover ; Can be used with a wide range of devices ; Shortcut keys are convenient ; Long battery life

Awkward to use ; Key sizes are uneven ; Key press detection is not very responsive ; Stand not adjustable

In the end, despite its positive initial impression, the UMK fails to impress, especially at its S$99 price tag. The key response is iffy and the size makes it unusable unless you have a surface to set it on. Even then, the uneven sizes of the keys...
