Nokia Wireless Keyboard promisses faster text input
Posted on 14-Jun-2004 21:45 | Filed under: News


To make entering text on mobile phone applications ranging from calendar entries and notes to e-mail and text messaging faster and easier, Nokia introduced a portable wireless keyboard based on Bluetooth. The keyboard can be used with compatible phones based on the Series 60 platform, including the Nokia 7610 phone which began shipping this month, and the Nokia 6630, and Nokia 6260 phones.

"Especially for those mobile professionals on the go who manage an increasing number of emails, text messages and notes with their mobile phones, the Nokia Wireless Keyboard makes it more comfortable, easier and more productive to use mobile applications," said Janne Jormalainen, Vice President of Mobile Enhancements, Multimedia, Nokia. "The foldable Nokia Wireless Keyboard is lightweight and compact enough to be easily carried throughout the day, taking us one step closer to the vision of a fully functional mobile office."

The Nokia Wireless Keyboard includes a full-QWERTY keyboard, four directional arrow keys and short cut keys to speed up access to the main terminal menu and messaging applications including SMS, email and more. It will be available in English and German/Scandinavian keyboard layouts and the wireless keyboard applications for compatible mobile phone will have support for English, Dutch, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian and Danish.

The Nokia Wireless Keyboard is powered by two AAA batteries enabling an operating time of up to 50 hours, weighs only 190 grams and measures 262 x 87 x 13 mm when open and 133 x 87 x 19 mm when folded. The keyboard is expected to be available in the European, Asia-Pacific and Americas markets during the fourth quarter 2004 at a retail price of approximately 135 excluding local taxes.
