|Kensington Announces Five Universal Smartphone Accessories to Boost Productivity No Matter Where Work Takes You|
Always on functionality and all in one design transform Blackberry®, Nokia®, Motorola®, Samsung®, HTC® and other smartphones into valued productivity tools
Redwood Shores, Calif. – July 20, 2010 – Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide leader in mobile computing accessories, today announced five universal products for smartphones that will enable business users to maximize their productivity anywhere, anytime. The productivity enhancers include a brand new battery pack small enough to fit in your pocket, a USB car charger to keep clutter at bay, a car mount to keep your smartphone safe and within reach and two cables that offer clear, clean sound from your car stereo.
Today’s smartphones empower users to do so much more than just facilitate a phone call. In the palm of your hand you can read and send email, access the web, contacts, view and edit documents or utilize GPS apps to quickly get you to your next meeting. This increase in multitasking abilities for professionals who conduct business on the road and outside the traditional office has created a new demand for standardized accessories that fit all user needs—from Blackberry, to Nokia, HTC or Samsung. The all-in-one functionality and universal power provided by Kensington is a natural complement to the next generation of smartphones that demand ‘always on’ capability and productivity.
According to recent Gartner research, smartphones are on track to be the dominant trend in the handset market as costs fall and performance increases. By 2013, smartphones will out ship laptops by over 2:1. Additionally, the flexibility and power of smartphones underlie many new mobile applications and business models.
“At Kensington we understand that life is busy and on the go, all of the time, so our products must support mobile professionals with the right features to enhance not only their smartphone but the productivity apps they rely on as well,” said Jim Murakami, Global Product Manager, Kensington. “We give you everything that you need and nothing more. Regardless of where you conduct your business, you can break free of the tether that keeps you at a computer or desk,” said Murakami.
