New Innovations Pay Off as PC Magazine Selects Kensington's Premier Mobile Input Device One of the Best Computer Peripherals of the Year
The editors of PC Magazine, the leading consumer technology publication, named the PocketMouse Pro Wireless™ one of the Best Products of 2003 in the peripherals category of its annual year-end awards issue (January 20, 2004). Kensington Technology Group, which enjoyed a significant boost in sales and retail placements in 2003, created the PocketMouse Pro Wireless to take mobility, convenience and function to higher levels that mark yet another new Kensington standard for computer input devices.
PocketMouse Pro Wireless features an all-in-one design that stores a wireless USB receiver inside a small compartment in the body of the mouse, eliminating not only a tangled cord, but also reducing the possibility of a lost receiver. As PC Magazine puts it, "Some mice travel better than others. What sets the Kensington PocketMouse Pro Wireless apart is that when you are ready to leave for home, the PocketMouse packs up ever so nicely."
"Kensington has a long history of award-winning products, and to add to that history with this award from PC Magazine is gratifying," said Don Angel, Vice President of Product Management at Kensington Technology Group. "PocketMouse Pro Wireless represents the tremendous effort we put behind all our products to create innovation and uniqueness that results in something functionally better than anything else out there. Being recognized by PC Magazine as a Best Product of 2003 is a great reward for our efforts."
PocketMouse Pro Wireless works up to three feet away from your laptop computer, and the rotating design of the USB receiver fits any USB port configuration. Power saving technology extends battery life by turning off the PocketMouse Pro Wireless when the receiver is stored.
Like the other devices in the award-winning PocketMouse line, the PocketMouse Pro Wireless has a conveniently small but comfortable size and shape, along with three programmable buttons and a scroll wheel that makes it easy to move through long documents or Web pages. Also, PocketMouse Pro Wireless is amazingly accurate, incorporating patented Kensington DiamondEyeTM Optical Technology, which provides pinpoint accuracy and allows the mice to work on nearly any surface, ensuring that the cursor glides smoothly across the screen.
As with all Kensington products, PocketMouse Pro Wireless is backed by The Kensington PromiseSM, which includes a one year warranty and free technical support.
