CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwired - Feb 17, 2016) - TREWGrip today released enterprise mobility research and development kits featuring the TREWGrip Mobile Dock, a handheld, rear-type keyboard with built-in air mouse and game control capabilities. The R&D kits are designed for innovators and early adopters working on developing more productive enterprise mobility solutions. The Mobile Dock works seamlessly with existing technology platforms, including mobile devices, desktop computer and AR/VR technology, and can be used for research, development and training purposes.
"A recent Harris Poll found that enterprise mobility will be the main focus of IT investment by IT decision makers in 2016," said Mark Parker, president of TREWGrip. "While much of the focus for enterprise mobility has been on apps and security, what workers really need are tools that allow them to be mobile and productive. In most cases, the technology platforms that execute the apps are what determine true mobility. Most devices categorized as mobile, such as convertible tablets and laptops are really portable solutions, and smartphones are just impractical for doing real work. The purpose of TREWGrip is to make enterprise mobility a reality by enabling mobile workers to be productive while sitting, standing or moving around in the field."
A TREWGrip R&D kit includes a Mobile Dock unit, a set of small, medium and large handgrips, a set of docking plates and a micro-USB charging cord with wall cord. The Mobile Dock allows users to connect via Bluetooth HID to up to three devices simultaneously, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, Smart TVs and other computing platforms. On the bottom of TREWGrip is a full QWERTY keyboard. On the top is a LED map of the keys on the bottom providing visual cues to help non-touch-typists locate the keys using hand-eye coordination. The Mobile Dock also features integrated mouse and game controls that engage by simply tilting and turning the device.
"We see TREWGrip evolving into a computing platform that can take enterprise mobility to the next level," added Parker. "We want to get TREWGrip into the hands of people building enterprise mobility solutions so they can put the device and rear-typing to the test in real-world scenarios. As we continue on our development path, we value the insights of users and the opportunity to partner with organizations interested in advancing the platform."
The R&D kits retail for $350 and are available online at TREWGrip.com.
TREWGrip is exhibiting at 4YFN from February 22-25, 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. The exhibit is part of Mobile World Congress 2016, the world's largest mobile industry exhibition.
