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.

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

MSRP of the GKM611B is $79.95.
