The list price of this universal Bluetooth keyboard from Logitech is
$49.99, almost twice as much as competing keyboards that usually sell from $20 and $30. However, you can now get the Black version of the Logitech K480 for $27.99. It’s a 44% reduction in price, and you keep in your pocket $20.
The price cut of the White version is not that big – only $8.50 (17%). The prices are slashed on Amazon (US Store). When you’ll want to shop the keyboard on Logitech website, the prices are still fixed at $49.99.
This universal keyboard took our attention when we were compiling a list of keyboard cases for Samsung Galaxy Tab tablets. Two features make it stand out from the competition.
First of all, it’s a truly multi-device keyboard. It doesn’t only mean it can connect with devices operated by Windows, Mac, Chrome, Android, or iOS systems. It also means it can connect with those devices simultaneously.
You can pair Logitech K480 keyboard with up to three devices. It could be your smartphone or a tablet, but also a laptop or a desktop computer. Now, to make the keyboard respond to the desired device, you can use the Easy-Switch dial on the left side of the keyboard.
The other interesting feature is the cradle that holds your smartphone or tablet at just the right angle for you to look at the screen while you type. You can even place two devices inside! The cradle can hold smartphones and tablets that are up to 10.5mm (0.4 in) thick and 258 mm (10 in) wide.
The cradle as an idea of making a stand for the device couldn’t be simpler!
There is one more thing I like about Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480. It’s large. The width is comparable the keyboard panels of 12-14 inch laptops. Typing should be convenient, as the keys are not too close to each other. The only disadvantage is the keyboard’s weight. It’s 820 g (1.81 pounds).
Having in mind that many tablet users are considering an option to improve productivity by adding a keyboard case or a keyboard, the solution from Logitech is very convincing. The K480 should be working well with your current and future devices. Not only the phone or tablet but also a laptop or desktop.
