New Matias keyboard changes the way you use your iPhone
TORONTO, February 24, 2010 — Matias today released a keyboard that gives you a whole new way to use your smartphone...
With a stand built into the keyboard, your iPhone or iPod touch can now be part of your desktop work environment. It's the most comfortable way to use your smartphone apps, when you're at your desk.
"This new setup is so convenient," said Edgar Matias, CEO of Matias. "I have all these little apps on my iPod that I use all day. With the new keyboard, they're in easy reach, all the time."
The thousands of apps available make your smartphone even more useful than before...
- Do quick calculations
- Check your stocks
- Facebook updates
- Control iTunes
- Custom Keypad & Trackpad apps to control your Mac
"It also lets me keep my personal stuff on my iPod touch totally separate from the work I'm doing on my PC," said Matias. "I can keep tabs on things with my iPod, leaving my Mac screen clutter free, and dedicated to what I'm working on."
The product was inspired by an article outlining a similar concept by Jesus Diaz, on the website Gizmodo.
"It's a little different from Jesus Diaz's idea. We tried several locations for positioning the smartphone stand. Ultimately, we found that having it just above the arrow keys was the most comfortable, especially when you just want to use the keyboard," Matias added.
