Products from Wireless Computing, Inc.
New USB-25 port adapter enables Mac and iMac users fast, easy access to
the company's super-reliable Wireless SurfBoard' and Wireless SurfMouse'
AUSTIN, TX (April 24, 2000) - Wireless Computing, Inc., manufacturers of
cutting-edge wireless computer peripherals, has announced the shipment of
its newest product, the USB-25 . The USB-25 is a PS/2-to-USB-port
keyboard/mouse adapter that enables Macintosh users access to the
company's premium presentation products - including its critically
acclaimed Wireless SurfBoard' and Wireless SurfMouse' - for the first time.
Mac and iMac users can connect Wireless Computing's receiver directly
into the USB-25, which then plugs into the USB port on all Macintosh
computers. PC users with a USB port also can benefit from the USB-25. By
connecting the Wireless Computing receiver through the USB port instead of
the keyboard and mouse ports, those ports are freed to accommodate
traditional, corded input devices.
According to Martin Phillips, president of Wireless Computing, the USB-25
fulfills two important, immediate market needs for a growing customer base.
"First, the USB-25 gives Mac and iMac users a simple, inexpensive way to
connect to our wireless keyboard and mouse products, which are based on
radio-frequency (RF) technologies, recognized as the most reliable in the
"Second, the USB-25 lets PC users free up their keyboard and mouse ports,
which then can be used to connect a corded keyboard or mouse, while
simultaneously using our wireless RF devices," said Mr. Phillips, adding
that a the USB-25/Mac set-up can be done in ten minutes or less.
The USB-25 is available now through the company's international network of
audio/visual resellers at a suggested retail price of $99.00 (USD).
The Wireless SurfMouse is designed for computer-based slide shows,
interactive training, software demonstrations, and especially for use with
presentation programs, such as Microsoft PowerPoint. The Wireless SurfMouse
features a fingertip-operated mouse touchpad similar to those found on many
notebook computers. The product sells for the U.S. suggested retail price
In a corporate environment, the Wireless SurfBoard provides complete
keyboard and mouse control for people operating a computer in front of an
audience. Using it, business presenters can operate the computer from
anywhere in the room, rather than being anchored to the PC. At home, the
Wireless SurfBoard can be used on computers equipped to display their
output on televisions or other large-screen display devices. The product is
available at the U.S. suggested retail price of $399.00.
Wireless Computing, Inc. designs, manufactures and markets leading-edge
wireless computer peripheral devices for presentation, training, and
