New Kensington® Keyboard Provides Smooth Gateway for Sharing Content from the Day’s Adventures - With Family, Friends and Home Computing Devices
Keyboards and a Line of New Mice Colors Join Kensington’s Popular Ci Lifestyle Collection of smart made simple™ Computer Accessories Designed for How Consumers Work and Play
Redwood Shores, Calif. - Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide leader in delivering smart made simple computing accessories for the mobile consumer, today introduced its Ci70 Keyboard with USB Ports. Now busy consumers can transfer their collections of digital data and visual content gathered as they are out and about during the day into their home computers quickly and easily right through the Ci70 keyboard itself, without need for additional wires or cables.
Recent Kensington research shows that the four most frequently used personal technology products carried around during the day are a digital camera, a flash drive, a mobile phone and an MP3 player. Consumers want to get the day’s photos, work files and music transferred from these devices into their home computer as quickly as possible. The new Ci70 Keyboard with USB Ports functions as a central hub that lets consumers synchronize their work and play lives with one simple but elegant desktop tool. By using the two USB 2.0 ports and one mini USB port at the top of the keyboard, consumers can upload content effortlessly into their home computer. No need to tackle multiple plugs and wires or try to reach that USB port that is out of sight. In addition, an attractive sliding panel keeps the ports out of sight when they are not in use.
“The Ci70 Keyboard is another great example of how the entire Kensington Ci Lifestyle Collection brings our smart made simple design philosophy to life”, said Juan Rodriguez, Senior Global Product Manager at Kensington. “Our research shows that most people have a shared central home computer that is stationary and provides access to all home peripherals. Our keyboard is now the gateway into their entire home computing system. It offers wired assurance and we are bringing the convenience of the upload cable and USB connectivity to the consumer’s fingertips, rather than the consumer having to crawl around on the floor after a hard day’s work.”
Key features of the Ci70 Keyboard with USB Ports include:
# Comfort and ease of use - Two easy-access USB 2.0 ports allow a quick connection to wireless mice, MP3 players, thumb drives and more. The Ci70 keyboard also includes a built-in mini USB connector with cable, allowing easy downloads of content from your camera or mobile phone. The keyboard soft-touch keys offer a crisp, responsive touch for added comfort.
# Space saving - Footprint is 35% smaller and the lower profile design saves desk space and reduces clutter. The wired component of the keyboard ensures constant connection and confidence.
# Intuitive controls - Five keyboard hotkeys are installed for instant access to mail, media, search and more. Media keys offer volume and track control, play and pause.
# Sleek design - Sliding door at the top of the keyboard offers a nice finished look, only opening to reveal the wire and ports when in use.
