Several years ago, IDC estimated that by the end of 2015, there would be more than 1.3 billion mobile workers worldwide, with the United States having the highest percentage of mobile workers in its workforce at 75%, or 186.2 million. Unfortunately, while today’s workers may want to be mobile, their technology may limit to what extent they can be.
The laptop has long been considered the best productivity tool for the mobile worker. In reality, however, laptops are portable technology. You still have to sit down and set-up to actually be productive with it. Sure, you can stand up, hold it in one arm and type with the other hand, but then your productivity goes out the window.
When the tablet was introduced five years ago, many touted that it would be the answer to mobile workers challenges. Certainly, tablets are mobile technology, but they are far from productivity tools for one key reason, the lack of a real keyboard. Many hardware manufacturers have tried to solve this problem by building add-on “mobile” keyboards. While typing on the tablets has improved, the mobility of the technology has decreased, as they now require users to sit down and set-up to use the tablet/keyboard combos.
The hardware world once again responded with two-in-ones; a tablet when you want it, a laptop when you need it. The answer, however resides somewhere in between laptops and tablets, not different versions of the same technologies. This challenge is referred to as the mobile productivity gap, and TREWGrip has a solution.
The TREWGrip Mobile Dock is a handheld keyboard, air mouse and game controller for today’s mobile technology, smart TVs and desktop computers. The ubiquitous QWERTY keyboard is split and rotated so users can hold TREWGrip and perform 10-finger text entry while standing, sitting or moving from place to place. Visual cues on the front allow non-touch-typists to locate the keys on the back using hand-eye coordination. While holding TREWGrip, a user can also control mouse movement and game interactions by simply tilting and turning the device. With its universal dock and Bluetooth HID connectivity, the TREWGrip Mobile Dock supports various technology platforms, including smartphones and tablets, while offering a uniform user experience for all data entry. TREWGrip fills the mobile productivity gap by helping workers to be mobile and productive.
