Desktop Solutions Provider Will Share Its Vision for Enhancing Productivity Through Integration of Smartphones and Computers at the Desk
Kensington®, a worldwide leader in delivering smart. safe. simple.™ desktop and mobile computing accessories, today announced that it will offer attendees at CES Unveiled 2016 a “sneak peek” of several new computing products that demonstrate the company’s ongoing vision and commitment to enhance productivity by integrating smartphones and computers at the desktop. CES Unveiled will take place in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort on January 4.
In most cases today, users are working with two or more computing devices at their desktop, which can lead to a chaotic experience involving multiple devices, files, and operating systems. As a result, users are faced with the burden of creating a separate computing environment with more accessories and too many choices — creating a cluttered landscape that is both inefficient and inconvenient.
While mobile computing products have enriched users and how they work, there is often a struggle to integrate devices and their associated accessories. An increasingly agile desktop system that focuses more on work and less on syncing, emailing back and forth, extra cables and other computing necessities, enables devices to communicate better with each other.
Kensington is committed to overcoming these obstacles by developing solutions that enable a more elegant and efficient computing experience. For more than 34 years, the company has delivered a robust range of desktop and mobile accessories, and is the industry standard of security-slot design integrated across products of leading brands such as Canon, Cisco, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Microsoft and Samsung.
“Our vision is to integrate the smartphone and computer so users can more easily navigate between multiple devices for a far superior desktop computing experience,” said Ben Thacker, vice president of global marketing and U.S. sales, Kensington. “We are investing in innovative solutions such as docking stations that integrate operating systems, wireless power options for smartphones, and zero footprint products to reduce desktop clutter. We look forward to offering a special preview at CES Unveiled where we will provide more details on our solutions designed to take desktop computing to a new level.”
The Kensington preview at CES Unveiled will demonstrate:
- The integration of two different operating systems (devices) into a seamless desktop experience
- How wireless power integrates successfully for desktop users
- How zero footprint products are advantageous
Kensington’s products will be showcased at CES Unveiled in the South Pacific Ballroom at Mandalay Bay Resort’s North Convention Center from 4 p.m.-7:30 p.m. on January 4.
