Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480 as the name itself implies is a multi-device keyboard which is compatible with any of your PCs, laptops, smartphones, tablets and more. At a first glance at the device, you will notice the smartphone or tablet holder which is actually a long hole on top. As you already understood, just place it there, and it won’t fall off during typing and possible shaking. We tested it ourselves, and in our analysis had no problems with it. So, you can comfortably start your typing tasks on whichever device you use.

Simply take it with you on your journeys and complete them wherever feels comfortable and right. This device costs around $50 which is not a big price for the features it offers. You should definitely give it a try if you are looking for a perfect keyboard for all of your devices.
Now – the design. It might annoy you to see the buttons are actually circular, which is a bit unconventional, we understand. But it’s not that big a feature to get used to, and you’ll forget all about it very soon. We liked the yellow placeholder for mobile phone and tablet, it looks very prominent and stands out. In case of a white keyboard, it will be grey, which stands out as well. You might wonder where to take a look at devices you connected? Well, above ESC key is a dial where you can see just that.
Devices will be shown as 1,2,3, which seems confusing at first, but will easily be understandable once you give it a try. Now, it might not be the most compact keyboard or the smallest one by far, but it’s a decent size. It’s a good solution for traveling like we mentioned, but if you have a desk to work at in mind. That’s because it’s not exactly lightweight either, and your hands would hurt after a bit more usage. It’s a great choice for this price range, and you must understand it’s not meant to be a gaming keyboard like Redragon K552 KUMARA.
While we’re talking about a price range, Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480 price is only less than $30. That’s an affordable option, and keep in mind you can use it for all devices.

In the end, this one is an affordable option for a plethora of devices. It offers some unique keys for mobile phone and tablet control, like Home buttons and multitasking menu, so you don’t have to touch your phone.
