CoolMIR Keyboard
Man & Machine, Inc., (“MMI”) an international provider of cutting-edge computer accessories, introduces the “CoolMIR”, the only secure direct-wired external keyboard for Research in Motion’s BlackBerry Handheld Personal Digital Assistant.

The CoolMIR is a sleek, flexible, compact, water-resistant keyboard that permits such fast and accurate typing on the BlackBerry that long documents and emails are easily accomplished and a laptop is no longer crucial. The CoolMIR offers road warriors, even those adept at thumbing BlackBerry entries, a lightningquick way to maximize user time. A lightweight travel companion, this portable keyboard is compatible with most BlackBerry models through the BlackBerry’s USB port for secure, confidential typing. Complete with familiar BlackBerry icon application keys, the flexible 10″ standard layout keyboard rolls up to fit in a pocket, rolls out to fit on an airplane tray. Its rugged construction, designed to withstand spills, can be washed clean with soap and water. A rechargeable battery delivers 15 hours of continuous usage.


“No one will benefit more from the CoolMIR than the Professional Road Warrior” says Clifton Broumand, MMI’s lighthearted founder and CEO, who bills himself as the company’s “Big Cheese.” “Business executives who spend a lot of time away from their office are our number one market.”

Assembled in the U.S., the CoolMIR keyboard has been years in the making. This ideal companion to the BlackBerry has excellent tactile feedback for comfort and accuracy. It also features noise-free keys. The CoolMIR is available in the U.S. and Europe. It comes with a one year replacement warranty. The CoolMIR keyboard has a list price of $189. and is available for immediate sale on the company’s website, http://www.man-machine.com.

    I just ordered a similar model (flexible silicon USB keyboard) direct from a supplier in Hong Kong for $5 (under $12 with shipping). The only differences are three-fold: 1) no special BB menu keys, 2) standard (not mini) USB jack), and 3) the price.

    You need to run software to use the keyboard. I’m waiting for someone to release an app that will let any USB keyboard run, so I may connect one of my $5 keyboards via USB with a mini-USB converter.
