Orbit™ Wireless Mobile Trackball Introduced With TrackballWorks™ Software Update to Customize User Experiences; Products Culminate Over Twenty Years of Industry-Leading Trackball Innovation
Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide leader in delivering smart safe simple™ computing accessories for the mobile consumer, today announced a new wireless mobile trackball and an update to its free TrackballWorks™ software. Trackballs have traditionally been designed for stationary desktop computer users, but not anymore. As the majority of new PCs sold today are laptops, trackball users demand a comfortable and smart alternative to a mobile mouse. The Orbit™ Wireless Mobile Trackball is built to fit the everyday working style of mobile professionals on the go.
The centered-ball design, recommended by ergonomists, delivers more precision and comfort than conventional ball-under-the-thumb structured trackballs. Kensington's trackball is built to accommodate either right-or left-handed use and incorporates both a storable nano receiver for convenient travel, and 2.4 GHz technology for optimal wireless performance. The new Orbit™ Wireless Mobile Trackball includes a number of additional user-friendly features. A mid-size ball that snaps in and out of place for easy cleaning, crisp and responsive buttons for precise work, and a unique Touch Scrolling solution make navigating documents quick and smooth. The accompanying customizable TrackballWorks software helps users fly through web pages and create shortcuts that let them work any way they want to.
"Over the course of our twenty years producing innovative trackballs, we've developed a very loyal and dedicated user community, to whom we paid special attention as we created this product," said Dan Torres, Senior Director of Global Product Management at Kensington. "Many professionals are not always working in a traditional office setting, so our customers need a trackball to be as mobile and agile as they are. We are delighted to offer a new wireless mobile trackball that has been defined and refined by its users, built from the ground up to get the job done wherever work calls."
