USRobotics’ New Tablet Accessories - stands and bluetooth keyboards

Chicago (July 12, 2011)USRobotics, a Platinum Equity company and leading provider of Internet access and networking products, today announced it has officially entered the tablet accessory product category with the launch of three new tablet stands and two new wireless Bluetooth® keyboards. Designed for a wide variety of devices, including tablets, iDevices, smartphones, netbooks and eReaders, the new stands include the USR5510 Tablet/Netbook Adjustable Stand, USR5511 Slim Tablet Stand, and the USR5512 Charging Stand for iPad®/iPhone®. In addition, the new USR5500 Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard and USR5502 Mini Bluetooth Keyboard are for tablets as well as any computer system, including home theater PCs. All five models were developed to help maximize the use of tablet computers at home and at work and are currently available for order.

“With the explosion of the compact, more affordable tablet-sized computers for crossover consumer and business applications, there has been an increasing need for stands and wireless keyboards to support those devices and make them more comfortable to use,” explained Bruce Swail, CEO of USRobotics. “USRobotics is entering the tablet accessory category with a line of stands and wireless Bluetooth keyboards that help people get the most benefit out of their iPads and other tablets so they are as effective and productive as possible.”

Created for everything from watching videos, reading eBooks or using a tablet as a computer monitor, the one-piece stands are compact yet sturdy designs that can be used at home to convert a tablet into a workstation. With multiple angles, the stands provide easy typing and clear viewing also making them ideal to watch movies or work while traveling.

The USR5510 and USR5511 are tablet/netbook adjustable stands with open designs that keep devices cool. Both are compact and foldable, which is great for travel. They can be used with most tablets, including iPad, Xoom™ and Playbook™ and allow for viewing in landscape and portrait modes. Because of their extendable legs, the USR5510 also works with thin laptops up to 15-inches and most netbooks. Their hands-free fit enables videos to be watched more comfortably while the lower angle makes it easier to type emails or multi-task at the office.

The USR5512 Charging Stand is ideal for iDevice users who want to go hands-free and charge at the same time. It’s a small, stable stand with a 30-pin connector for iDevices including the iPad, iPhone, iPod touch® and iPod®. The stand can be connected to a computer with an iDevice cable to sync and charge the battery. At the same time, speakers can be connected to a lineout port to watch videos and listen to music with better audio quality.

When paired together, the stands and keyboards save time by allowing users to remotely control a movie or volume with multimedia shortcut keys or skip the virtual keyboards and type faster on longer emails.

The USR5500 Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard and USR5502 Mini Bluetooth Keyboard are the ideal accessories for home and business users with tablets or computer systems placed in tight spaces. They support most tablets and also work with all major systems with Bluetooth support including Playstation® 3, Windows®, Macintosh® and Linux. Their additional multimedia function keys control music or videos remotely, pause a video or mute the volume without leaving a fingerprint on the screen. The full size USR5500 has iDevice keys for additional functionality like slideshows, swapping between virtual and Bluetooth keyboards, and the Home key. The pocket size USR5502 with its rechargeable batteries is ideal for IT server rooms, students, and professionals on the go and want to pack light.
