HELSINKI and NEW YORK, June 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Button Corporation, which launched the world's first internet connected physical push button in the Spring of 2014, announced today the all-new bttn Mini®.
Packed with the same magic but half the size of the original bttn®, the new bttn Mini is the ultimate physical signalling device for human beings. With the bttn Mini in the line-up, The Button Corporation keeps delivering on the premise of the simplest internet user interface in the world™.
"We are proud to have been able to pack even more power into the diminutive form factor of the bttn Mini. With two distinct gestures – the press and the long press – the bttn Mini can perform two separate actions. The long press is a feature developed to meet the needs of our business customers to be able to cancel or confirm an action or a purchase," says Harri Rautio, founder and CEO of The Button Corporation. "As this is a widely requested feature, we are bringing it also to the original bttn via a simple firmware upgrade," continues Rautio.
In just two years, bttns have been shipped to over 100 countries worldwide and are used by leading companies in transportation & logistics, maintenance services, hospitality industry, retail, elderly care, manufacturing & process industries, security and smart home, to act as a shortcut to order their products and services.
The new bttn mini comes with three connectivity options: mobile data, SIGFOX and Wi-Fi.
Shipping of mobile data version of bttn Mini starts today, the Wi-Fi version in July, and SIGFOX version in Q3 of 2016.
