LG has expanded its portfolio of mobile accessoroes and announced today Rolly Keyboard, which is wireless and portable keyboard for its smartphones and tablets. The Rolly Keyboard (model KBB-700) will be showcased in IFA 2015 in Berlin next week at LG stand in Hall 18.
The Rolly Keyboard is solid rollable wireless portable keyboard and folds up along the four rows and turn into an easy-to-carry “stick” that fits easily into one’s pocket or in the purse.
This keyboard features high-contrast keys and a fold-out mobile device stand. The company claims that the typing on Rolly Keyboard is extremely comfortable because its 17mm key pitch is nearly as generous as the 18mm key pitch found on most desktop keyboards.
This keyboard is made of impact-resistant and durable polycarbonate and ABS plastic therefore typing on the keyboard offers satisfying tactile feedback not found on flexible silicone keyboards. Two sturdy arms fold out to support smartphones as well as tablets in an upright position. Simply unfolding the Rolly Keyboard enables the auto pairing function to connect easily to two different devices at the same time via Bluetooth 3.0 with the ability to toggle between the two with a simple key press. A single AAA battery powers the keyboard for up to three months of average use, as stated by the company in its press statement.
“LG Rolly Keyboard is just one of the many premium input devices we’ll be unveiling in the coming months as we expand our accessories offerings,” said Seo Young-jae, vice president in charge of Innovative Personal Devices at LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The goal was to create a product that could add more value to LG smartphones and tablets at the same time offering a unique design proposition that hadn’t been explored before.”
The Rolly Keyboard will start shipping in September in the United States, followed by key markets in Europe, Latin America and Asia in the fourth quarter. Prices and details of availability will be announced locally at the time of launch.
