Features of T-Blade
The biggest feature of “T-BLADE™” is the QWERTY keyboard installed on the back. By adopting the same key arrangement with the existing QWERTY keyboard, users feel nearly the same with typing a normal keyboard. In addition, by arranging the keys on the back, it enables an effective way of utilizing dead space in the rear of iPads. For tablet users, external keyboard is a must item, but it requires some space for typing and lacks mobility as a proper mobile device.
By adopting back keys, “T-BLADE™” balances both mobility and operability, improving the typing environment of tablets in a dramatic fashion.
Keys (thumb typing keys) located in the front
Without impairing the recognition performance of iPad display, “T-BLADE™” offers the keys that can operate using a thumb on both sides (left and right) of a screen. Return key, space key, back space, shift key, cursor key and specific keys are located in the front. Since there is no need to operate a tablet’s screen using fingers, all keys are operable with both hands holding a tablet. It provides overwhelmingly fast and stable tablet operation than using an on-screen keyboard. Moreover, with no on-screen keyboard displayed, the display area will be overwhelmingly wider. Furthermore, operation of dedicated software is possible with the specific key arrangement.
Advanced design and lightweight
A chic form that gently wraps iPad and a QWERTY keyboard on the back is an innovative style of Bluetooth keyboard ever. The design of “T-BLADE™” is highly compatible with unique iPad designs and gives a stylish impression by mounting.
“T-BLADE™” is lighter than iPad itself and its portability is assured. By mounting “T-BLADE™,” users can hold iPad firmly with both hands providing substantial enhancement of safety compared to holding iPad with one hand and type in with the other.
“T-BLADE™” is capable of evolving iPad into a device that allows users to type in “anytime” and “anywhere.” In business situations such as editing emails, Excel or Word as well as SNS or games in personal life, “T-BLADE™” enhances and extends the capabilities of iPads.
Future development of “T-BLADE™”
TSJ is scheduled to have “T-BLADE™” available to general consumers at the beginning of the launch in autumn 2016. However, TSJ is confident that the mobility performance of “T-BLADE™” will further enhance the utility value to tablet devices used in various business situations such as in construction, medical services and education fields.
Therefore, TSJ is willing to reinforce alliances with various companies in the area of B-to-B in the future as well.
