Oh, man. Kensington went all out today by announcing 20 different notebook accessories that should be due out this summer. There is just too much for the front page to handle. Hit up the jump for full details on all of the accessories including locks, carrying cases, peripherals and—gasp!—an iPod accessory! Hooray, iPods!
First up to the plate are four MicroSaver locks that have improved locking mechanisms. There are four different models available in keypad or combination lock-style. They will retail from $40 to $70.
Also Kensington introduced nine Contour laptop cases. These cases are endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association. They will be available this month and will retail for $30 to $100.
The lone product introduced by Kensington day that perks my ears a little is the Notebook Expansion Dock with Video. It is similar to the traditional laptop docks but rather than being model-specific, this dock will work with any laptop and only utilize one USB port on the actual laptop. It will allow for USB peripherals, speakers, mice, keyboard, VGA display and more. The wedge design also allows the laptop to be elevated, therefore improving airflow. The Notebook Expansion Dock retails for $180.
Kensington is introducing quite a few peripherals. The Ci60 and Ci20 Wireless Optical Mice have rubberized grips, five programmable buttons and DiamondEye optical technology. The Si300 Lase Mouse has laser tracking and a 4-way tilt scroll wheel. They have also released the Wireless Presenter and Wireless Presenter with Laser Pointer. These two presenters use 2.4GHz wireless technology in a palm-sized device to control presentations up to 50 feet away from the USB receiver. Prices for these peripherals begin at $25.
Lastly, here it is, the one you have been waiting for: the 4-in-1 Car Charger for iPod! This device will powers the iPod, charges the iPod,
acts as an FM transmitter
acts as a passthrough for FM Transmitters, and can charge other USB devices.
Thanks to Ben for the update.
