San Francisco, Oct 12 (IANS) Tech giant Microsoft is planning to launch a new Ergonomic and a slim Bluetooth keyboard with dedicated shortcut keys for Office and Windows 10s emoji menu.

Both keyboards are up for pre-order and will start shipping from October 15.

The Office key will replace the right-hand Windows key, and can also be used with various letters to directly open apps in Office. While, the emoji key sits to the right of the Office key.

The Bluetooth keyboard has a wireless range of up to 33 feet and is compatible with Windows 8.1 and 10.
