Microsoft has just launched its modern keyboard which is an updated version of the surface keyboard. This 'modern keyboard' features a hidden fingerprint sensor located between the Alt and Ctrl keys to make typing hassle-free.

The Modern Keyboard is now available via the Microsoft Store in the US for $129.99, Canada and China, which is $30 more than the standard Surface Keyboard of the same design but without the fingerprint reader. The new Modern Keyboard is Bluetooth, but can also be used with a wire if you prefer.

Microsoft says the keyboard should last 4 months on a single charge, and is, in fact, rechargeable, so you shouldn't need to dish out for new batteries every so often. The product description is as follows: Long and complicated passwords are a thing of the past with this beautifully designed keyboard. The fingerprint sensor is subtly hidden in a normal-looking key and uses Windows Hello to let you sign in instantly and more securely with one simple press. It can be used wired or wirelessly with Bluetooth.

Microsoft also adds that Windows Central has nothing to announce regarding the availability of the Modern Keyboard outside the US, Canada and China, which is unfortunate for those outside those countries who were interested in this product.
