Matias updates award-winning Tactile Pro Keyboard

and releases Mini Tactile Pro


TORONTO, January 1, 2013 — Today, Matias released version 4 of its award-winning Tactile Pro Keyboard for Mac, and expanded the line with a compact model, the Mini Tactile Pro.

Both the Tactile Pro and Mini Tactile Pro are built from premium ALPS mechanical keyswitches, similar to those used in the legendary Apple Extended Keyboard — widely viewed as the best keyboard Apple ever made.

“If you long for the days when keyboards weren’t flat and wafer-thin, you will love the Tactile Pro and Mini Tactile Pro. The keys are curved to fit the tips of your fingers; they click when you press them; and you can feel the click. It’s the best typing experience,” said Edgar Matias, CEO of Matias.

The Tactile Pro 4 closely matches the layout of a standard Mac keyboard — complete with an Fn key and special function keys that work just like those on an actual Apple keyboard. You can control Screen Brightness, Volume, iTunes, and more, without installing any drivers.

“We’re also really excited to have the new Mini Tactile Pro. It has all the features of the original Tactile Pro, but in a smaller package, so it takes up much less space on your desk. It’s even small enough to fit in your laptop bag — if you want to take it with you — and we’ve made it very easy to do that. The keyboard unplugs from its cable, and we provide an extra cable that you can keep in your laptop bag, specifically for travel. You can just unplug and go,” said Matias.

Both keyboards feature a built-in 3-port USB 2.0 hub, convenient for connecting your mouse or trackball, flash drives, and other accessories.
