Microsoft Intros Its Thinnest Keyboard

9/09/2009 09:57:09 AM Eastern

Redmond,
Wash. - Microsoft debuted what it's hailing as its thinnest keyboard to date.

The
Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 ($89.95) comes with a stand-alone Bluetooth
number pad, which will also be sold separately for $44.95.

The
keyboard is said to measure just a few millimeters thicker than a AAA battery
at the back. It's engineered to taper down toward the front for lighter weight
and portability ease, and it comes with Microsoft's Comfort Curve design for an
"ergonomic typing experience."

The
Comfort Curve design "encourages natural wrist posture with a slight 6-degree
curve that is easy to use with virtually no learning curve," said Microsoft in
a statement.

The
Bluetooth number pad comes with a carrying case. Both will be available in
October and have a three-year limited hardware warranty.
