Mobility Electronics today announced the launch of the Stowaway Sierra, a next generation portable Bluetooth keyboard designed specifically for smartphone and PDA users. The Stowaway Sierra portable keyboard includes five rows and full-size keys, providing the closest replication of a traditional desktop keyboard available on the market.
The Stowaway Sierra is the latest addition to Mobility Electronics' Think Outside family of portable keyboards. Having shipped more than three million portable keyboards since 2000, Think Outside is the market leader in this growing category of mobile accessories.

"The Stowaway Sierra is the ideal tool for enhancing the productivity of a smartphone," said Charles Mollo, CEO of Mobility Electronics. "With a fifth row dedicated to numeric keys, the Stowaway Sierra significantly improves the ease of data entry and utilizing Windows-based key combinations and features. Most importantly, the Stowaway Sierra folds into a compact size for easy storage. We believe the Stowaway Sierra extends our leadership position in portable keyboards and will allow us to further capitalize on the proliferation of smartphones and other handheld computing devices."

The new Stowaway Sierra Bluetooth Keyboard and software suite offers several unique features, including:

  • Compatibility: Stowaway Sierra is compatible with over 600 different Bluetooth-enabled phones and computers. It supports all major operating systems, including Windows XP, Mac OS X, Windows Mobile 5, Pocket PC, Palm and Symbian.
  • Dedicated numeric keys: Stowaway Sierra adds a fifth row of numeric keys to ease the workload for mobile professionals who perform heavy number entry.
  • Full-size foldable keyboard: Stowaway Sierra is truly a desktop-feeling keyboard, with 19mm size keys like those found on most computers. It folds into a compact 5.0 x 3.5 x .9 inches and is available in the English QWERTY keyboard layout. French AZERTY and German QWERTZ keyboard layouts are expected to be available in the upcoming months.
  • Over-the-air driver installation: Users can surf to Think Outside's Web site to automatically download the latest driver, eliminating the need to sync with a PC.
  • Windows XP support: Supports Windows shortcut keys and F1-F12 keys, as well as number lock, print screen, insert, scroll lock and pause.
