Guess what? Earlier this morning, Microsoft quietly unveiled a coolÂ new product called “Microsoft Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID.” This new â€œModern Keyboardâ€� product has an integrated fingerprint reader. The Modern Keyboard is designed for Windows Hello — the biometic login feature found in Windows 10. It features Bluetooth 4.0/4.1 and a wireless range of up to 50 feet.
The Modern Keyboard is the successor to the Surface Keyboard, and looks identical. The only changes are a new fingerprint reader and the ability to use a cable for a wired connection instead of wireless.
Microsoft has integrated the fingerprint reader into the second Windows key on the right-hand side of the keyboard, and it can be used to log into Windows 10 or websites using Windows Hello. The new Modern Keyboard will work with Windows 10, MacOS, and the latest versions of Android.
The Modern keyboard will be available shortly, priced at $129.99.Â It’s a surprisingly quick release schedule after Microsoft only debuted the Surface Keyboard for $99 recently. $129.99 is a lot to pay for a keyboard, but it is one of the best desktop keyboards on the market at the moment if you like laptop-like key travel. Well, if you had already bought the original Surface Keyboard then I surely feel your pain.
