Logitech at IFA 2014 unveiled a new keyboard accessory that can be connected over Bluetooth not only with smartphones and tablets but also with Macs and PCs, making it the only keyboard you’ll need to simply control all your devices – or at least up to three of them – simultaneously.
The Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480 can be paired with smartphones, tablets and computers and has a simple “Easy-Switch” dial that can be used to seamlessly move between one of the three Bluetooth devices it can be connected to, without having to worry about setting it up.
To make things even easier, the keyboard can also act as a stand for both a smartphone and tablet, which means users would have easy access to up to three screens at the same time.
The Keyboard K480 sells for just $49.99 and should already be available for shipping.
