“We want to keep our customers productive and add an element of personal touch to their tablet computing,” said Juan Rodriguez, Senior Global Product Manager at Kensington. “Our research shows that the future of computing is still shifting—the lines that separate personal and professional technology usage continue to blur and media tablets like the iPad matter more and more to businesses. We know professionals are bringing their own devices to work, so we’ve given them a new range of essentials to extend their performance even further.”
