FrogPad Bluetooth iFrog Keypad

FrogPad Bluetooth iFrog Keypad

Hop wirelessly with one hand.

Looking for a wireless solution for typing information into your Bluetooth enabled devices? FrogPad Inc., a developer of one handed keyboards, thinks they may have the answer for you with the recent unveiling of their Bluetooth iFrog.

With separate models for right handed and left handed users, the Bluetooth iFrog is compatible with all Bluetooth enabled devices which support the Bluetooth Human Interface Device (HID) profile. This profile, designed by FrogPad partner cc2GO, will initially support Pocket PC, Palm OS, Symbian and Windows Mobile SmartPhone operating systems out of the box via included drivers. Support is planned for Java and Unified Messaging devices shortly.

The maximum range of Bluetooth wireless coverage is approximately 30 feet. Within this range, FrogPad envisions the iFrog being of potential use for mobile enterprise applications like Microsoft Word and Excel. They also feel it will have uses for gamers and personal applications.

The Bluetooth iFrog, with compact dimensions of 5.6? x 3.7? x 0.7?, essentially allows users to input information using keys which are the same size as those found on a regular QWERTY keyboard. In the standard FrogPad design, the 26 letters of the alphabet share 13 keys. Half are inputted via one touch, while the other half require holding down a ?shift? key (which is found along the bottom row) at the same time you are typing that letter.

Besides the shift key, other keys along the bottom row, working in conjunction with the two rows above, provide access to symbols, numbers and other common functions found on full size keyboards.

Priced at $225 the Bluetooth iFrog, besides being used wirelessly, can also connect to anything which supports USB via an included cable. The iFrog is housed in a white faceplate and sports color matching alphanumeric and special function keys. It comes with a carrying case and has a built in, rechargeable battery which can be powered through the USB connection.
