This keyboard is a classic tool for the modern writer

While this writing gadget’s design calls to mind the great works of past literary geniuses, you won’t keep this keyboard on your desk just for inspiration’s sake. No, this keyboard is also a powerful tool that will help you get work done. That’s because it allows you to work on three devices at once. So, you can connect this keyboard to your desktop, phone, laptop, and tablet and work seamlessly between them thanks to a strong Bluetooth 5.0 connection. It also works in both wired modes for when you need to be a speed demon and is compatible with Windows, iOS, and Android devices.
