Pocketop Corp. Expands Line of Folding Keyboards to Include a Host of New Features

DOVER, DE -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 22, 2007 -- Pocketop Corp. (PINKSHEETS: PKTO) today announced that the Company will be releasing three new folding keyboards that once again fit in your pocket to serve the wireless marketplace. The 5500 Series will replace the original 5000 Model and have both infrared and Bluetooth connectability, be light weight, have a brushed aluminum case like the original Pocketop and come with detachable stand that allows you to rotate your PDA and Smartphone to take advantage of screen orientation. The 6000 Series will have all of the features of the 5500, a backlit keyboard when in use, anti skid and shock protection, a charge indicator and be upgradeable. The high end 7000 Series will have all of the features of the 6000 with polished stainless steel look, perimeter case lighting, built-in WiFi, an expanded programmable chipset to allow multimedia connectivity, rechargeable battery and an expansion port to allow modular features to be installed. The 7000 will also have flash bios memory to make it adaptable to changing data structures and new WiFi and Bluetooth and computer operating system updates, an adjustable backlit stand that can double as a reading light and the new "companion" pointing device. All of the keyboards will use the Pocketop's "easy close" hinge and locking mechanism that has been upgraded from the original keyboard. It is anticipated that standard retail distribution will be utilized, starting in the third quarter for the products including web site sales. Retail pricing, and it may vary between retailers, is anticipated to be between $129.00 for the 5500 to $189.00 for the 7000 Series. Sneak peeks of the products will be available in early May on the Pocketop website and legitimate industry hardware reviewers may contact the company for samples in July. The company will be setting up a pre-order web page that will allow you to get it first by directing and holding the first stock shipped for retail sales stock at the nearest retailer and via the web site if none are available. There is now a complete upgrade path for our hundreds of thousands of original keyboard users, and yes, it will fit comfortably in your pocket. That's why we are called Pocketop.

"The new series of keyboards are simply the best folding keyboards money can buy," commented Nino Caldarola, President and Chief Executive, Pocketop Corp. "No plastic enclosures, the highest quality keyboard mechanisms and features no one has. Once again, if you thought the original was good, and hundreds of thousands of you did, wait until you get your hands on these. We will make you want to go to work."
