Logitech reveals the K480 a Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard, a desk keyboard designed for use with three devices (regardless of the computing platform). You can now use their Easy-Switch dial on the K480 to quickly switch from messaging on your smartphone to tweeting on your tablet. It is compatible with Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Android, or iOS tablet as long as it has Bluetooth capability.
Pricing will be set at $49.99 and set to be available in September of 2014.
One of the shocking features that is lacking from the K480 is an illuminated keyboard which we were hoping for it to have but alas you can’t have everything right?
