Many of the compact keyboards offered today are mechanical. These are mainly intended for gamer users. However, Logitech has just introduced the MX Keys Mini, a kind of alternative to Magic Keyboard Apple in which its minimalist design stands out and, despite its small dimensions, good-sized keys that promise to write comfortably.
The new Logitech MX Keys Mini, unlike the standard version, lacks the number pad on the right. For the user this can be a positive aspect, since it leaves more free space in the workspace. This admits fast charging with USB-C (10 days of use on a charge and 5 months with the backlight off) and can connect with up to 3 different devices via Bluetooth, although it is also compatible with a USB receiver (not included).
Logitech claims that the MX Keys Mini is compatible with macOS, Windows, Android, iOS, iPadOS, and Linux. However, those using the first two operating systems will benefit from additional features. One of them is the dedicated dictation key, which while holding down, writes everything that is said aloud in the selected text field.
Logitech MX Keys Mini, the magic is in the keys
The Logitech MX Keys Mini also has other features that are generally not found on other devices on the market. These are a emoji key and one to mute or unmute the microphone, an option that could be widely used in these times. It also has Flow, a function that allows you to control different computers at the same time and transfer files between them.
These have a concave shape with rounded edges. Each of them has a coating that allows to facilitate the movement of the fingers on the surface. The backlight, thanks to the integrated sensors, it automatically adjusts to the light conditions. This turns on when the fingers are detected and pays off when they move away.
To buy the Logitech MX Keys Mini you don’t have to wait for anything. It is now available on the Logitech website for 109 euros. As expected, in different languages including Spanish. Also, for now, those who buy it can choose to receive a free one-month subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud.
