Microsoft unveils its thinnest Bluetooth Keyboard!

Microsoft announced today its thinnest keyboard dubbed "Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000", which if you didn't notice in the name is designed exclusively for Bluetooth enabled PC's. The keyboard itself is just a few millimeters thicker than an AAA battery, with Microsoft's Comfort Curve design for a more natural wrist posture when typing.

"The design tenets of compact, clean and refined really set the stage for the success of the keyboard," said Chris Kujawski, industrial designer for Microsoft Hardware. "There is nothing extraneous about the design. We removed everything that didn't fit with those ideas and ended up with something we're really proud of — a compact, sophisticated keyboard that pairs perfectly with Bluetooth computers."

According to Microsoft's press release, one of the top consumer complaints when using a notebook of a netbook is the lack of a number pad. So Microsoft has shipped a stand-alone Bluetooth powered number pad as well as a carrying case with the Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000.

The keyboard will be available in October of this year with an estimated retail price of $89.96 for both the keyboard and number pad, and $44.95 for the number pad itself. Both are backed by a worldwide three year limited hardware warranty from Microsoft.

WHY, WHY, WHY are these slick keyboards always wireless? I don't want a wireless keyboard, I've never wanted a wireless keyboard.

Because I've never once had to change the batteries in my wired keyboards. My computer desk is stationary and I'm not walking around the room. The wires of my keyboard never really move....what is the incentive for getting a wireless keyboard other than having to spend money on batteries and then dispose of them.

I obviously don't use wireless mice either.

^ My wireless mice... I think I change the battery every... 6 months? If it's not that much, I don't ever worry about it since it lasts SO long. Also, you don't need to work around the house to own a wireless mouse or keyboard. LOL It's just to remove the wires around!

And, seriously, batteries lasts much longer than you think.

I guess if you find the wire clutter to be that big of an issue. Even in they last 9 months, that still means I am switching out batteries during the year. And having to properly dispose of them. It just seems like a waste to me. But to each his own, I've always found a wired equivalent that I like.
