    Sometimes you see a product hit the streets and it just makes you say... "Wow! Why didn't someone think of that sooner!" Here's a prime example: the Universal Mobile Keyboard from Microsoft. It basically does exactly what it sounds like it should do... you can use this on your Windows device, your iOS device or your Android device.

    It basically offers the "platform agnostic" mobile hardware junkie the best of all worlds for their various tablets and other devices. It's designed to make things much easier when you actually need to be productive on your tablet, and don't feel like lugging around (or breaking out) your laptop.

    This universal keyboard uses Bluetooth and even works on most of the phones from Android and iOS. Check out the video above for a demo. The keyboard is a bit pricey at $79.95 on Microsoft's Store, but the versatility and virtual elimination of extra junk could provide extra value.

    Thanks for the tip, leeshor!

    I'll stick with SwiftKey and Swype.

    Couple other options from Logitech. I have been using the first one for about a year and a half now across many devices and it works great. It is the model specifically for Android, so there are the Android keys you are used to such as back, home, menu.

    Just saw the second one on their site, looks like a new version, looks pretty slick as well.
