CandyBoard Wireless Mini Keyboard Now On Sale

VisionTek Products, LLC today announced the North American launch of the CandyBoard, their wireless mini keyboard with integrated touch pad, with plug & play 2.4GHz frequency USB dongle. The keyboard is slightly bigger than the classic American candy bar and complements your collection of typical home remote controls. It features 69 keys and a “capacitive-sensing” touch pad that’s comparable to a real notebook touch pad, which eliminates the need for a separate mouse. The media center PC is becoming the in-home library for movie storage and play back, creating a need for smaller and more efficient remote navigation. The VisionTek CandyBoard features backlit LEDs keys to use in low-light environments, making it a perfect complement to any home theater PC or family room game console.

“The integration between your home computer and your television entertainment system creates a need for more mobile and user-friendly peripherals.” Stated, Mark Bilson, VP of Sales. “Web based content has ballooned in the last year and only promises to explode in the next decade. I can honestly envision a CandyBoard in every family room across America!” In addition to compatibility with the PC, the VisionTek CandyBoard is fully compatible with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles. The need for text and search capabilities in the console environment is magnified, as more web based content becomes readily available via these platforms. Compatibility doesn’t stop with the PC and console, the CandyBoard is also compatible with Mac systems and Linux based environments too.

The CandyBoard features are simple and efficient, incorporating a rechargeable Li-ion battery to provide longer performance between charges. The signal is more than ample for most rooms, ranging up to thirty (30) feet of transmission with a full QWERTY Keyboard to enable all commands right from the finger tips. “It has an innovative touchpad that completely eliminates the need for a mouse.” Remarked, Jeff Hoeft, VP of Product Development. “Most users have bulky wireless keyboards and mice for use with their entertainment computers, but the CandyBoard takes care of all those needs in the size smaller than a standard TV remote control.” The CandyBoard also features a built in laser pointer for boardroom or lecture style settings that demand full control over a PC while presenting to a captive audience.

The VisionTek CandyBoard has an MSRP of $89.99. VisionTek’s products are being distributed by D&H, D&H Canada and Ingram Micro for resellers and will be available directly to consumers at Amazon, Buy.com, Dell.com, NCIX, Newegg, and other leading PC outlets in North America.

30 “feet”? Uh… what is this, the 17th century? US of A, the world has moved on. In case you haven’t heard, there’s a thing called the Metric System that everyone uses these days. 1 meter equals 100 centimeters, and 1 kilogram equals 1000 grams. Time to wake up Mark Bilson and VisionTek before you make yourselves look even more embarrassing and awkward than you already are.

Over here we’re bright enough to work it out in our heads, but since you aren’t, 30 feet is about 10 meters.

…agreed… not even sure why it is on here LOL, every single USB Keyboard in the world works with the Xbox 360 & PS3? Nobody would buy that tat up there over a 360 Chat Pad
