Microsoft’s new foldable keyboard is designed for any mobile device

Microsoft originally created a universal keyboard for iOS, Android, and Windows back in September, and now the company is announcing a foldable version. The Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard (yes, that’s the full name) is similar to the original, with Bluetooth connectivity to work across multiple devices, and a lack of a dedicated Windows key. While the original wasn’t foldable, this new version folds up neatly with magnets to keep it closed if you’re carrying it in a bag alongside your device.

Microsoft has ditched dedicated function keys at the top of its latest universal keyboard, but there’s a function key for the usual audio controls, search functionality, and more. The keyboard can pair with two devices at a time and switch between them with one touch. While there’s also a lack of a neat stand for your tablet on phone, you do get the benefits of a lightweight keyboard and the ability to fold it away easily. I got a chance to try the new keyboard at Mobile World Congress today, and I think this might be my next tablet keyboard. Battery life is up to three months before you need to charge it again using the micro USB connector at the side. It’s very thin and the soft material feels like it would stick to a desk well without slipping away.

This feels like the perfect accessory for writing a few emails from your tablet or phone at a coffee shop while you’re on the go. Microsoft has always made great keyboards and mice for Windows-powered devices, and if the company continues to create good keyboards for iOS and Android then I’m going to find myself owning a lot of Microsoft keyboards in the near future.

Microsoft says the keyboard will cost $99.95 when it’s released in July.

Titan drones will make their first flight in a few months

At Mobile World Congress this morning, Google’s Sundar Pichai said that Titan, the drone company Google acquired in April of 2014, would be conducting its first test flight later this year. Google bought the company after it was widely reported Facebook had made an offer. Both were interested in the drone’s ability to stay aloft for long periods of time with little energy and to carry a payload capable of providing internet connectivity to people down below.

Pichai says Titan is about where Project Loon, Google high altitude balloons, was a couple of years ago. The Titan team is building a new type of super lightweight solar-powered airplane that would be capable of hovering in one area of the stratosphere. This could provide a way to beam internet down to a targeted area on the ground below, supplement existing services with extra bandwidth, or providing access in an area that’s suddenly offline, like after an earthquake or other disaster.

Loon and Titan could complement each other, providing what Pichai described as a mesh of flying cell towers circling overhead. While the balloons can be tricky to steer and cover a wide area, Titan aircraft could be maneuvered to provide capacity to particular areas based on demand. In both instances, Google’s plan is to partner with carriers to provide overlapping service to people on the ground so that they don’t have to worry about exactly where it’s coming from. Pichai said the hope is to begin connecting some of the roughly 4 billion people on earth who currently don’t have reliable internet access.
