The S.T.R.I.K.E.M mobile keyboard offers gaming-grade hardware in a small form factor, and will be available in time for the holidays.
Mad Catz have announced their latest gaming keyboard, the S.T.R.I.K.E.M. The keyboard is the latest addition in Mad Catz’s GameSmart line of mobile offerings, and comes with NFC connectivity that allows users to connect it to devices that support NFC. S.T.R.I.K.E.M also comes with Bluetooth connectivity, allowing it to wirelessly connect to devices that do not feature NFC.
Mad Catz says that the keyboard will be the ideal accessory to its upcoming gaming micro-console, the M.O.J.O. The S.T.R.I.K.E.M keyboard features micro P.U.L.S.E. scissor keys, an Optical Finger Navigation (OFN) mouse sensor that has dedicated mouse buttons. The keyboard has illuminated backlit keys, comes with on-board memory so that users can configure various combinations of macros and dedicated media buttons.
Also, Mad Catz’s M.O.J.O game-console will be able to stream PC content like games and videos to TVs, so this keyboard is bound to come in handy in that use case scenario.
Darren Richardson, CEO of Mad Catz Interactive, said during the announcement that, “The S.T.R.I.K.E. range has proven to resonate with gamers, and we are excited to extend the brand into mobile gaming with a technically advanced product, which combines impressive features with striking aesthetics. We believe the S.T.R.I.K.E.M fits perfectly with our long-term strategy of designing innovative products for passionate gamers across all gaming platforms.”
Pricing details have not been announced yet, but the S.T.R.I.K.E.M keyboard will come in three color variations of red, white and black. The keyboard will be available in time for the holiday season this year.
