One2Touch, a technology firm specializing in NFC-powered wireless communication products is launching the first smartphone cover with an integrated portable keyboard, called the SlimType. The NFC-powered keyboard & cover is available for pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Flat and S6 Edge.
The lightweight and stylish SlimType smart cover gives mobile users the freedom to take advantage of the full size screen on their Samsung mobile devices and stay productive while on the go, instead of relying on their laptops and desktop PCs.
With no need for batteries, connectors, or charging, the SlimType’s unique, easy-touch portable NFC keyboard is ideal for reading and responding to e-mails and text messages, taking quick notes on an airplane, in meetings or classes. The ultra-thin SlimType protective textile smart cover fits easily in a pocket, purse or jacket.
“We believe NFC technologies can give mobile devices the power to go far beyond the basic tap-and-go mobile wallet services,” said Nils Knagenhjelm, VP Strategic Alliances, One2Touch. “By designing and building smartphone NFC accessories that introduce the concept of ‘tap-and-stay,’ consumers have new and exciting ways to use their mobile devices. For example, many people prefer to use a keyboard, instead of struggling to thumb through e-mails and texts on their phone. The SlimType smartphone cover with keyboard is the beginning of the vast possibilities enabled by NFC. We’re extremely proud to push the envelope on how NFC is used to bring about exciting new ways for consumers to work and create with their smartphones.”
