Last month, Microsoft quietly unveiled the new Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID that hid a fingerprint sensor in what normally would be a standard Windows key. Since then, the keyboard has gone on sale in the U.S. for the retail price of $129.99.
Microsoft touts the rechargeable battery inside the Modern Keyboard will last four months. This is in contrast with the standard Surface Keyboard that lasts twelve months on a charge. If the Modern Keyboard dies, you’ll be able to use it over a USB wire. Additionally, it works over Bluetooth thanks to Bluetooth 4.0.
