Tech giant Microsoft is planning to launch a new Ergonomic and a slim Bluetooth keyboard with dedicated shortcut keys for Office and Windows 10s emoji menu.

Both keyboards are up for pre-order and will start shipping from October 15.

The Microsoft Ergonomic keyboard is priced at $59.99, and includes a fabric palm rest and is wired to a PC via a USB port. Microsoft’s smaller Bluetooth keyboard is priced at $49.99, and it has Bluetooth 5.0 support with up to three years of battery life, the Verge reported on Friday.

The Office key will replace the right-hand Windows key, and can also be used with various letters to directly open apps in Office. While, the emoji key sits to the right of the Office key.
