The all new layout on the Microsoft's Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 is now available for pre-order on the Microsoft Store.
It took the Redmond company's three years to blend together the best out of the two worlds into a single peripheral which is right on track for commercial availability in just a month and a half.
"Building on the original Comfort Curve, this new key layout is designed to be a better option for straight-keyboard users and has been improved in two fundamental ways," explained Dan Odell, Certified Professional Ergonomist.
"First, the QWERTY keys are uniformly sized in a way that is more similar to a standard straight keyboard. That increases the familiarity. Second, the curve has been modified to be more organic -- adding curvature in the third dimension. That increases the comfort."
The Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 will be available in August for $19.95 at Amazon, Office Depot, and the Microsoft Store.
