Award-winning keyboards fit in the palm of your hand or snuggly on your lap

December 8th, 2010

This time of year, the technology industry is ablaze with talks of the latest gadgets and do-dads that are to be announced and revealed at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Come January 2011, all the top electronic manufacturers will be showcasing their latest innovations positioned to take the consumer electronic space by storm. Instead of media scouring the show floor at the convention to discover the most innovative and creative consumer electronics that are on display, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and other media, begin reaching out to exhibitors to submit their products and enter them into various awards. In this instance, we are speaking of the highly revered CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Award Honorees. Products submitted to this prestigious award fall into various categories ranging from computer accessories to major home appliances. IOGEAR is proud to announce that TWO of our new 2.4GHz Wireless Keyboards - the GKM571R (available for purchase soon) and the GKM581R - have been chosen as honorees in the Home Theater Accessories category as part of the CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Awards. The GKM581R uses the human form as a model, creating an all-in-one keyboard designed with a slip resistant rubber bottom and contoured form to sit comfortably on laps of all shapes and sizes. The GKM571R is made to hold comfortably in the palm of the user's hand, perfect for mobile content management in the home. One remarkable feature is its LED backlight, perfect for in the dark usage. From our product descriptions of these two keyboards listed above, what do you think of IOGEAR's innovative solutions for managing and navigating through multimedia content from the comfort of your couch in your home theater set up?
