Get Connected With Griffins New Wired Keyboard, A Hassle-Free, Secure Solution for Students, Teachers and Professionals
Wired Keyboard connects directly to iOS devices, providing an easy, secure solution to connect anywhere
Nashville, Tenn. May 13, 2014 Griffin Technology, one of the worlds foremost creators of innovations for everyday life, introduces the Wired Keyboard for iOS Devices. Featuring the familiar layout and feel of a full-size keyboard, Griffins Wired Keyboard offers full iOS key functions and tactile feedback with the added advantage of a cord that makes connection quick and easy in any setting. The Wired Keyboard is offered in 30-pin or Lightning versions and is the perfect hassle-free, secure solution for students, teachers and professionals. Users simply connect the keyboard to their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, and instantly their devices get the full-featured keyboard they crave.
“Our Wired Keyboard is an easy plug and play solution that we designed for use in classrooms as a convenient option for students and teachers,” said Erin Wiles, Education B2B Business Development at Griffin Technology. Additionally, with the advent of digital standardized testing, school districts are implementing rules for devices that require the use of an external keyboard not connected by Bluetooth. Our Wired Keyboard ensures that iPad tablets will meet SBAC and PARCC testing requirements.
Created specifically with school environments in mind, the Wired Keyboard helps instructors avoid challenges that inevitably occur when pairing several iPads with several Bluetooth keyboards. Since there is never a need to change batteries, recharge the keyboard or go through a Bluetooth pairing process, teachers can focus on lessons rather than spending time troubleshooting connection issues.
The one-meter cord allows users enough length to set up their workspaces comfortably and provides the security of a direct-wired connection. The Wired Keyboard is offered in both 30-pin and Lightning versions so it can be used with any iOS device.
Griffins Wired Keyboard ($59.99) comes with a three-year warranty and is available at store.griffintechnology.com/wired-keyboard-for-ios-devices. For more information about Griffin Technologys education products visit griffintechnology.com/education.
