Rochester, Minn, March 6, 2013 – NUU, a mobile accessories company dedicated to improving functionality through innovative products, unveils the MiniKey for iPhone 5, a slide-out Bluetooth keyboard case that enhances productivity for iPhone power users.
The MiniKey for iPhone 5 is based on the acclaimed iPhone 4 model, adopting similar features such as a backlit keyboard, full 42-key keypad, slightly raised frame to protect the iPhone 5 screen from scratches and special function keys to quickly and easily edit text. It enhances the previous design through a thinner and lighter frame, on/off switch, ergonomic buttons, quick-charge ability and improved Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity.
Designed for all users, from the business executive to the avid texter, the MiniKey for iPhone 5 features a snap-in design that securely hugs the iPhone 5 while allowing access to all controls, ports and camera.
“The iPhone 5 is a major communications hub in our lives, and while typos and auto-correct mistakes can be amusing and entertaining, it can also create embarrassing and costly situations,” said Danny Sit, CEO of NUU. “The MiniKey eliminates mistakes by adding a full keyboard and allows users to take back their screen.”
