Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E.M Wireless Keyboard Launched

The key feature of the S.T.R.I.K.E.M that sets it apart from all other Bluetooth keyboards is that it has an Optical Finger Navigation (OFN) Mouse Sensor that allows the user to navigate on an Android device or connected TV with the familiarity of controlling a mouse cursor on a computer screen.  The OFN feature makes navigation and game play immediately familiar to mouse and keyboard gamers and anybody who has ever surfed the web.  Powered by a rechargeable Lithium Polymer Battery with up to 45 hours of battery life, the S.T.R.I.K.E.M features illuminated backlighting, dedicated media buttons, and on board memory used for storing multiple macro commands.

Whether browsing the web on your Smart TV, working with mobile office on your tablet, navigating your Home Theatre PC, or gaming on your M.O.J.O. ™, the S.T.R.I.K.E.M features universal Bluetooth® compatibility that allows it to operate with practically any device that allows keyboard input.

“The recent addition of support for controllers and other gaming peripherals on Android devices established the infrastructure to support a mouse and keyboard gaming experience on mobile” said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz.  “We are also excited by the progress made by cloud gaming services, like OnLive®, that allow gamers to play hundreds of PC games from AAA publishers streamed from the cloud to a smart device.  There’s no doubt controller-supported games and cloud gaming on mobile devices are emerging categories, but we believe the market for products like the S.T.R.I.K.E.M and the entire ecosystem of GameSmart peripherals that enable a core gaming experience on mobile devices will emerge this year.”

The S.T.R.I.K.E.M is available in gloss black, gloss white, and gloss red.
