Logitech announced a wraparound fabric keyboard that offers input control and lightweight convenience for Palm handhelds. An industry first, the Logitech KeyCase uses ElekTex, a sturdy electronic fabric that offers a low-profile keyboard which wraps around the handheld when not in use to protect it from life on the road.
KeyCase frees users from stylus operation with an on-screen button and dedicated function keys for quick access to frequently used Palm functions as well as select, cut, copy, and paste buttons. A pressure-sensitive scroller provides for effortless navigation of menus and long documents. The unit is instantly ready for data input by means of a SmartMotion Cradle. With the handheld secured in place, users simply prop up the cradle into typing position and the entire system is on and ready. Featuring U.S., French and German layouts, the KeyCase will be available in the US and Europe in early April for $99.95 USD.
