IOGEAR's Multi-link Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad wirelessly switches between six Bluetooth enabled devices, providing convenient management of smart phones, tablets, HTPCs, gaming consoles, and more.
Foothills Ranch, Calif. - April 4, 2011 - Continuing their pursuit of connectivity through convergence, IOGEAR™ is now shipping the Multi -Link Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad (GKM611B) for wireless management of up to six Bluetooth enabled devices. Data input for social media, gaming or even board rooms has reached a new level.
Entertainment, productivity and communication blend more seamlessly with a single data input device. Bluetooth 2.0 technology provides a 30 feet radius of operability allowing the IOGEAR Multi -Link Bluetooth Keyboard to access six devices whenever they are in range.
In a desktop or home office setting, the GKM611B can replace hard -wired keyboards so users aren't tethered to their desk and chair. Mobility is certainly an important advantage, but so too is the ability to remain in one place while accessing multiple devices from a single keyboard. Bluetooth enabled products such as iPhones, tablets, laptops, cellphones and others can all benefit from the GKM611B as a single input device, something the whole family will appreciate.
Once work is over and play time begins, the Wireless Multilink Bluetooth Keyboard also plays an important role in the media room, providing input control of Home Theater PCs, gaming consoles, and even Blu -ray Players with BD Live. Once a user switches to the desired Bluetooth -enabled device, custom hotkeys provide even greater convenience with push -button access and management of: My TV, videos, pictures, music, Internet browser, volume control and more. Switching between Bluetooth devices is seamless so users can perform multiple tasks such as: type an SMS text message, edit Xbox live gaming profile, post Facebook status update and adjust the settings of a media center PC; from a single input device, without moving.
An Integrated touch pad with left and right mouse buttons on the GKM611B adds flexibility since users are not required to keep a separate mouse in tow when switching between devices. Complementing the unique functionality is an ultra -slim and low profile design that allows users to type with style and comfort from any angle in the room. Ergonomically designed for many different laps and surfaces, the GKM611B also features a slip resistant base, two AA batteries and weighs only 1.90 lbs for painless toting.
"Wireless keyboards are appealing because users aren't tethered to a machine while operating," states Bill Nguyen, senior marketing manager for IOGEAR. "Our new multi -link Bluetooth keyboard offers this same comfort for six separate devices, providing freedom to move around or stay seated while staying connected."
IOGEAR's Multi -Link Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad will be shipping late in Q1, 2011.
MSRP of the GKM611B is $79.95.
