NewerTech Wireless Aluminum Keypad Line Adds Black Key Choice, Works with Bluetooth Enabled Mac Keyboards, MacBooks, PCs and More

Woodstock, IL — October 29, 2014 — Today, NewerTech announced that a Black Key option has been added to the NewerTech Wireless Aluminum Keypad line, and is now available for shipping. Designed to complement the black keyboard of the MacBook and MacBook Pro, this latest addition to the NewerTech Wireless Aluminum Keypad line is built to the same rigorous standards as the original white key model.

Wide Range of Bluetooth Compatibility
The NewerTech Keypad is the ultimate easy-to-pair Bluetooth workhorse that's built to last in a precision-machined aluminum housing designed to complement the look and feel of Apple keyboards. The NewerTech Keypad line is ideal for pairing with a wide variety of Bluetooth enabled Mac models, as well as Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch models, and nearly all brands of tablets and smartphones manufactured in 2010 or later.

Great Design Meets Great Performance
NewerTech worked with accounting professionals to get every detail of this keypad just right, including key-throw, feel, design, size, and connectivity. Bluetooth pairing is quick and reliable, and reconnects automatically when the computer or device is awakened or restarted. The comfortable wide-spaced island keys make the NewerTech Keypad the perfect companion to the Apple wireless keyboard - your fingers won't know the difference!

"In use, you don't have to pound these keys, they have a nice polite "touch" to them... This echoes that of the Apple keyboard's keys and makes for a near-seamless transition between hitting a letter key or a numeric ..." - Marshal Rosenthal,

Elegant & Perfect for Streamlining Numeric Data Input
The NewerTech Keypad is perfect for finance professionals, including accountants and analysts, as well as students, teachers, administrators, programmers, and more. The responsive full-sized keys assist with accuracy and efficiency. Use this keypad with popular apps, such as Pro Tools, Logic, and Final Cut Pro to be more efficient by taking advantage of shortcuts that are not as easily accessible when using the Apple wireless keyboard alone. Versatile, lightweight, compact, sturdy, and durable, the NewerTech Keypad also works as a stand-alone or with a variety of other keyboards and it's a great companion for working at home or on the go.

"This new choice offers our customers the option to match the look of black keyboards found on many MacBook and MacBook Pro models," said Larry O'Connor, CEO, NewerTech. "Whether for professional or personal use, users will enjoy a high-quality wireless keypad that enhances their workflow."

Both White Key and Black Key models of the NewerTech Keypad are available for immediate purchase. An international version with illustrative black or white keys will be announced in December.
