Logitech is close to releasing a new illuminated keyboard that will allow you to connect multiple devices to it.

The Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 is an upcoming addition to the PC accessory company's keyboard lineup. It allows consumers to connect their smartphone, tablet or PC to it all at one time, and switch between each device with the push of a button.

What's better is that it's compatible with Windows, iOS and Android devices. It's even set up for Windows 8, which will be released on October 26. For instance, consumers can use the keyboard's Windows 8 Start key to make their way back to the Start screen, or the App Switching function helps switch between applications much easier.

The Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 is thin and USB rechargeable, meaning consumers can use the keyboard even when it's charging via the USB cable. It also has an On/Off switch, a battery indicator light and auto-adjusting illumination. According to Logitech, the keyboard has proximity detection that turns on the lighting when a user's hands are aproaching it, and it dims/brightens depending on the amount of light in the room.

Logitech also designed the Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 with real brushed aluminum so that it would match any modern PC, tablet or smartphone.

"It's increasingly common for people to use more than one device over the course of the day, and we saw an opportunity to help ease the transition among screens with the Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard," said Mike Culver, vice president of brand development for consumer computing platforms at Logitech. "Using Logitech's heritage of high quality and reliability, this keyboard combines the funtionality and design people expect with simultaneous multi-device pairing, which they will appreciate."

The Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 will be released in the U.S. in October and Europe in November for $99.99 USD.

I like the design of the keyboard. Must admit that I would not connect multiple devices to it.

Seems to me that there are not many Illuminated keyboards out there. Except for really expensive ones.

Well I like the idea of this, especially since I have an Iphone and would consider getting an Android tablet device. Still it is awesome but I am super happy with my with Logitech G510.

It's a strange device though. I mean it's too big for a phone and too small for a PC. Dont get me wrong it's still pretty cool.

I know I could use it as I especially like the ability to read kindle books off of it and it is a great tool to use when you lying in bed and you want to browse the net and that. Otherwise I wouldn't really use it it's full potential.

Tablets seem strange to a PC user, but once you have one it's VERY hard to turn back. They just become the "go to" device to do anything really. From recipe's whilst cooking, to remote control apps for your PC's / torrents etc. They seriously just kick [censored]! (Providing you get an android tab)

And for travelling (as I travel alot) it's unbeatable!
