Windows Vista to launch with some swanky hardware devices from Microsoft

Microsoft's hardware division is at it again and this time they're pulling out all the stops with their latest product. The company has unveiled a new teaser campaign on its site that showcases "The Ultimate Keyboard."

The new Bluetooth-based wireless keyboard is aimed at making your Windows Vista experience even more pleasurable with such features as a backlit keyboard with ambient light sensor and proximity sensing to power down the lighting when you leave the room. Even more impressive is the included pad that charges your mouse when not in use. It's probably using some kind of induction charging system similar to what's used in A4Tech's BatteryFree Mouse. The ergonomic keyboard also features a host of media buttons and controls to take advantage of Vista's multimedia capabilities and has a 30 foot range. But for all its features, the new keyboard ditches the traditional numpad that most have grown accustomed to.

Microsoft's latest and greatest features premium grade plastic construction along with metal accents to liven things up. The Ultimate Keyboard is sure to have an ultimate price once it's released; likely around the same time that Vista hits store shelves.

FasterThanLight - are you kidding me? my brother's bluetooth microsoft's mouse/keyboard combo works like s..t - the delay on keybord (especially firsts strokes) is holerious, it often does not connect at boot time, keys feel like sponge etc, can't be used with pc switch (despite using the same passcode during setup on second pc). beside it was overpriced. the only pro i can think of is security (with passcode) when it works and the possibility of using it with bt enabled cell phones. oh, and the bt receiver died (for no reason) so it had to be replaced (still it didn't fix daily pain with the product).
