    Continuing their pursuit of connectivity through convergence, IOGEAR today introduced the Multi-Link Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad (GKM611B) for wireless management of up to six Bluetooth enabled devices. Data input for social media, gaming or even board rooms has reached a new level.

    Entertainment, productivity and communication blend more seamlessly with a single data input device. Bluetooth 2.0 technology in the GKM611B provides a 30-foot radius of operability allowing the IOGEAR Multi-Link Keyboard to go from couch to kitchen table or conference room to office, switching between different devices with ease.

    Once a user switches to the desired Bluetooth-enabled device, custom hotkeys provide even greater convenience with push-button access and management of: My TV, videos, pictures, music, Internet browser, volume control and more. An Integrated touch pad with left and right mouse buttons adds additional flexibility since users are not required to keep a separate mouse in tow when switching between devices.

    Complementing the functionality is an ultra-slim and low profile design that allows users to type with style and comfort from any angle in the room. Ergonomically designed for many different laps and surfaces, the GKM611B also features a slip resistant base, two AA batteries and weighs only 1.90 lbs for painless toting.

    "Wireless keyboards are appealing because users aren't tethered to a machine while operating," states Bill Nguyen, senior marketing manager for IOGEAR. "Our new multi-link Bluetooth keyboard offers this same comfort for six separate devices, providing freedom to move around or stay seated while staying connected."

    IOGEAR's Multi-Link Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad will be shipping late in Q1, 2011.

    MSRP of the GKM611B is $79.95.

    What an awesome product..
    the price is right to..after having a LOLgitech dinovo edge and blue-tooth elite fail on me
    and atrocious customer support from LOLgitech in Australia on their top shelf products I only tend to buy Microsoft peripherals these days, but this keyboard specs well and if the build quality is present it is a likely candidate for my coffee table/desk/tablet/netbook

    so the idea of this, is that you can easily swap between being paired with your phone, your PC, your PS3, etc? not a bad idea

    This is perfect for switching between my PS3, HTPC/server, and laptop in my house. This is on my "to buy" list.
