Most wireless keyboards look like… well, desktop keyboards. But the upcoming Lenovo ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II looks like what you’d get if you ripped the keyboard off a recent ThinkPad laptop… it even has an integrated TrackPoint nub in the middle and clickable buttons below the space bar.
It’s designed to work as wireless keyboard that gives you a ThinkPad experience when your laptop is hooked up to a docking station. But you could also use it as a standalone keyboard for just about any device — Lenovo says it’s compatible with Windows and Android and can pair with up to two devices.
The new ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II should be available in May for $100.
The keyboard measures about 12.1″ x .5″ x 0.6″ and weighs 1 pound. It connects to a PC or mobile device either via Bluetooth 5.0 or a 2.4 GHz wireless dongle that you can plug into the USB port.
You can adjust the tilt angle of the keyboard, and the key pitch of the scissor switch, chiclet-style keys is 19.05mm.
Lenovo says the keyboard is spill resistant and features 6-point key entry for visually impaired users, and has a rechargeable battery that lasts for up to 2 months on a charge. If it does run out of juice, you can plug it into a USB-C charger for 15 minutes to get up to a week’s worth of use.
