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.

It almost sounds like you're implying they'd design a keyboard for something other than gaming or office apps :)

I know that can't be true cause I read the other comments in the thread.

Office apps and gaming are two different things. I don't see your point.
