Abstract

An example keyboard module for a computing device may be separable and wirelessly communicable with a display module. In some examples, the keyboard module may include a wireless transceiver to receive a first audio signal from the display module and to transmit a second audio signal to the display module. The first audio signal may be output by a speaker on the keyboard module. The second audio signal may be captured by a microphone on the keyboard module. In some examples, the keyboard module may include a wireless display receiver to receive a display image from the display module. In some examples, the keyboard module may include a display output port to output the received display image for an external display.
