LG has launched the first “rollable” keyboard for mobile devices, one where users can fold into a stick and carry it in their pocket or bag.
Called the “Rolly Keyboard,” the product will be launched at IFA 2015, Europe’s largest electronics trade show, in Berlin next week. Prices and more details of the roll-out of the Rolly will be revealed at the launch.
One AAA battery is needed for three months of use, and the full-sized keyboard connects via Bluetooth.
LG is also expected to launch the latest version of its G Pad tablet at IFA 2015. The Korean company will be hoping these products will help pull up last quarter’s poor financial results, when it announced operating profit fell to $211 million from $516 million in the same period last year, amidst slackening demand for its LCD TVs and smartphones.
