IOGEAR's New Portable Gadgets Fit in Any Student's Backpack

Flash drive and presentation mouse available for the upcoming school year



Aug 28, 2007, 01:00 ET from IOGEAR, Inc.

    IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Aiming to assist students with
 the forthcoming semester, IOGEAR today introduced new products for the
 constantly on-the-move student, including a 4GB Flash Wallet Drive
 (GFD204B) and 3-in-1 Wireless Phaser Presentation Mouse (GME422RW6).
     The Wallet Drive ($69.95 MSRP) provides 4 gigabytes of portable
 storage, and at 3mm thick and smaller than a business card, is ideal for
 on-the-go use. The product includes security software, maximizing the
 protection of important data, such as research projects and presentations.
 In addition, it allows students to bring their data to any classroom or
 computer lab to collaborate on projects or share music and pictures.
     The 3-in-1 Wireless Phaser Presentation Mouse ($59.95 MSRP) offers a
 laser pointer, track ball for wireless use and optical capabilities for
 desktop computing. Interoperable with PCs and Macs, the unit communicates
 with a USB receiver up to 30 feet away, ideal for making computer-based
 presentations in the classroom. Additionally, the track ball on top of the
 mouse enables it to be used in the palm of one's hand. On a solid surface,
 the mouse can switch into optical mode, and operates between 800-1600 dpi
 to accommodate the user's preference. The surface is covered with Nano
 Coating, consisting of a Titanium Dioxide and Silver nano-particle compound
 that contains antimicrobial properties to prevent bacteria from surviving
 on the product.
     "Students need affordable and practical tools for the upcoming school
 year," said Miranda Su, vice president of sales and marketing at IOGEAR.
 "Our new mouse and flash drive meet their needs by providing added
 convenience and functionality for today's hi-tech classroom."
     These products join the Digital Scribe, a recently launched product
 that assists students in backing up their notes by transferring handwriting
 and drawings from plain paper to a PC. Now, longhand memos can be
 translated into digital text and stored for easy editing, including those
 written in cursive. It can also capture shapes and sketches and export them
 as JPEG images, eliminating the hassle of using cumbersome drawing tools on
 a computer.
     The 4GB Flash Wallet Drive supports Windows ReadyBoost(TM), a new
 program on the Windows Vista(TM) platform that increases system performance
 by accessing memory capacity from external sources. The product plugs into
 and supports USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports, and is compatible with Macintosh,
 Microsoft Windows and Sun operating systems. Smart Security software is
 included for Windows users.
     All three products are currently available from all major catalog and
 online resellers, as well as selected retail outlets. For further
