I was a big fan of the Eleksen fabric keybard when I've used the original Orange SPV and the i-mate Smartphone. However, it had one problem - it was directly linked to these devices (because of its stand and connector). But the idea was simply great.
Anyway, Eleksen confirmed that they are going to release a follower of the SPV specific fabric keybard - this time more generic and with Bluetooth!
The Eleksen Bluetooth enabled fabric keybard is a new version of the award winning fabric keybard. The new version communicates with PDAs and mobile devices using Bluetooth wireless technology.
The standard keybard is built on the Eleksen Elektex fabric and supprots the following features and options:
- Supported Devices
- Mobile phones
- Table PCs
- Laptop PCs
- Other devices needing a keybard
- Variety of synthetic and natural fabrics
- Raised and flat keys
- Adjustable key shapes
- Adjustable key pitch
- Water resistant fabrics
- Adjustable keybard size
- Language and character supprt
- Bluetooth, USB and proprietary connections
The keybard is lightweight, compact and incredibly durable and is available in a variety of different languages.
UPDATE: Planned availability for distributors and retail is end of Q2 with an expected retail price of US$ 99. The new keyboard will come with drivers to support Windows Mobile Smartphone, Symbian Series 60 and Palm 5.0 Bluetooth enabled devices. Further devices and operating systems will be added later.
