Many people these days have multiple devices -- a computer, smartphone and tablet is not unusual in any home. Desktops require a separate keyboard, while the other two rely on an on-screen model, which can be annoying at times. Now Logitech wants to solve that issue with one solution for all platforms.

The Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480 can work with up to three different devices. A switch allows for movement between each, with a holder for your smartphone or tablet. It's a full-size desktop keyboard though, so users shouldn't feel cramped, as they did with previous tablet and handset keyboards.

"Perfect for today’s multi-taskers, the Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480 easily connects to your device through Bluetooth and allows you to type in comfort on a full-size desk keyboard with a familiar layout. With a choice of two color schemes, the keyboard is designed to blend into your home decor without sacrificing style", Logitech announces.

The K480 keyboard retails for $49.99 and is available now direct from Logitech. It's compatible with Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, and even Chrome OS. You'll need to be running a fairly modern version of each operating system -- Windows 7 and iOS 5 (at least) for instance. You'll also need two AAA batteries, though it ships with them pre-installed to get you started.
