The new SlimType is the first NFC-enabled smartphone cover that comes equipped with an integrated keyboard while keeping your device's slim factor.
Initially designed to fit smartphone models such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, the SlimType NFC smartphone cover is the first of its kind to hit the market. Made from soft-feeling textiles, the cover works even without batteries, connectors or charging.
"With no need for batteries, connectors, or charging, the SlimType's unique, easy-touch portable NFC keyboard is ideal for reading and responding to e-mails and text messages, taking quick notes on an airplane, in meetings or classes," says SlimType.
In order to sync the smartphone with the SlimType's integrated keyboard, the user would have to set his smartphone with NFC capability on the keyboard. The next thing he needs to do is to install the required app.
"Take advantage of your phone's full size screen and manage your emails, web-applications and extra features easy," said SlimType. "SlimType NFC keyboard is designed for easy touch and fast typing. SlimType is excellent to bring in meetings or classes, for taking notes or writing messages, with no need for batteries, connectors, wires or charging."
The SlimType smartphone cover is 5.73 inches high, 6.06 inches wide and 0.10 inch thick. It is available in three fashionable color options that include Cherry Red, Black Sapphire and White Pearl.
Customers can get the SlimType smartphone cover at a special introductory price of $39, which will be available for a limited time.
According to SlimType, NFC offers extra data security as compared to Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, which explains why they choose the technology over the others.
"We believe NFC technologies can give mobile devices the power to go far beyond the basic tap-and-go mobile wallet services," says Nils Knagenhjelm, One2Touch's VP Strategic Alliances.
Knagenhjelm adds that the SlimType smartphone cover is just the beginning of huge possibilities brought by NFC, and that the company is proud of using NFC in a number of innovative ways for users to work and become more productive with their devices.
Galaxy S6 and S6 edge accessories such as cases and covers proved to be highly successful so far, as many smartphone owners want to add some extra protection to their devices. With that in mind, this new smart keyboard case could be a great hit, as it offers both protection and extra convenience and functionality.
