Full-Size Keyboard For Pockets
New Device Supports LG Goal to Increase Share of Growing Mobile Device Accessories Market.
To help capture a larger share of the fast-growing mobile accessories market, LG Electronics (LG) will introduce a new solid rollable, wireless and portable keyboard in the United States in September. To be unveiled next week at IFA 2015 in Berlin, Germany, LG’s Rolly Keyboard (model KBB-700) features a four-stage fold up along the rows to create an easy-to-carry «stick» that fits easily in a purse, briefcase or backpack.
Featuring high-contrast keys and a built-in fold-out mobile device stand, typing on Rolly Keyboard is comfortable because its 17mm key pitch is comparable to the 18mm key pitch found on most desktop keyboards. Made of impact-resistant and durable polycarbonate and black ABS plastic, Rolly Keyboard offers satisfying tactile feedback often not found on flexible silicone keyboards.
Two sturdy arms fold out to support smartphones as well as tablets in an upright position. Simply unfolding the Rolly Keyboard enables the auto pairing function to connect easily to two different devices at the same time via Bluetooth 3.0 – with the ability to toggle between the two with a simple key press, all powered by just a single AAA battery.
«LG Rolly Keyboard is just one of the many premium input devices we’ll be unveiling in the coming months as we expand our accessories offerings,» said Seo Young-jae, vice president in charge of Innovative Personal Devices at LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. «The goal was to create a product that could add more value to LG smartphones and tablets at the same time offering a unique design proposition that hadn’t been explored before.»
The Rolly Keyboard will make its debut in September in the United States. Pricing and details of availability will be announced at the time of launch. Visitors to IFA 2015 can see LG Rolly Keyboard up close in Hall 18 of Messe Berlin from Sept. 4-9.
