All-in-one Case and Keyboard for the iPhone 4/4S! A New Compact,

Portable, Slide-Out Wireless Keyboard for the iPhone Goes on Sale


ELECOM CO., LTD. (Head office: Chuo-ku, Osaka, Japan; President: Junji Hada) will release a new all-in-one case and slide-out wireless keyboard for the iPhone, in the middle of January.

The "TK-FBI033 Series" slide-out wireless keyboard has been designed as an all-in-one case and keyboard for the iPhone; an extremely compact and portable solution for carrying your iPhone and wireless keyboard around. To use the keyboard, simply leave the iPhone fitted within the case and slide it out so that it pops up over the keyboard. With this all-in-one device, you can use the keyboard to input data into your iPhone really easily, anytime, anywhere.
When you slide the iPhone out, the iPhone screen pops up over the keyboard at a comfortable angle, making it really easy to see the screen.
The characters on top of the keys are based on an original font that is very stylish and easy to read, providing great visibility and reducing the likelihood of typing mistakes.

The "TK-FBI033 Series" supports the Bluetooth® HID profile, with an English layout keyboard perfect for the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4. It comes with a Home button and other features specifically designed for the iPhone. As your iPhone can be used while fitted within the case, the stable fit between iPhone and keyboard allows you to type in smoothly while holding it with both hands; an ideal device for using when on the move.
The keyboard comes with a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can be charged with the supplied charger cable. A charge of 3.5 hours provides approximately 14 days of use (*). *These values are based on in-house testing environments and they are by no means guaranteed.

To register your device with Bluetooth®, simply press the pairing button at the beginning to establish a pairing. This keyboard can be used on non-magnetic surfaces, such as wooden desks, at distances of approximately10m, and even on magnetic surfaces, such as steel desks, at approximately 3m. It also has a very useful battery indicator that lets you know when the battery needs recharging.
Additionally, it has been designed as a perfect companion for your iPhone, as it can be left fitted within the case when using the screen and when plugging into the dock connector. It is available in two colors: black and white.
