The iKey FZ-G1 Jumpseat, a QWERTY keyboard with touchpad, interfaces via the tablet's USB 3.0 docking connector. Designed from the ground up to be rugged, the FZ-G1 Jumpseat is comprised of a magnesium case with a rubber keypad and is fully sealed to resist the dirt, dust, and spills that can ruin most keyboards. Additionally, the FZ-G1 Jumpseat keyboard includes an integrated multi-function touchpad that supports advanced gesturing actions.

iKey's FZ-G1 Jumpseat complements the Toughpad's integrated ten-point multi-touch screen and digitizer input, providing for expanded user convenience and improved typing accuracy and speed while enhancing ergonomics with uncompromised support and flexibility. The iKey FZ-G1 Jumpseat runs on an advanced Li-ion battery that lasts for two months under typical use and can easily be recharged via the tablet's USB port.  Red multi-level LED backlighting keeps users working in low-light environments. Additional functionality can be added to the FZ-G1 Jumpseat with options such as a fingerprint reader or additional full sized USB ports.

"Working in partnership with Panasonic on this solution has been a great experience for iKey", said Charlie Gibbs, Sales Manager, iKey. "Panasonic brings a wealth of experience in mobility and continues to be a market leader with the Toughpad line. Being able to collaborate and leverage each other's strengths has created a solution that gives additional flexibility to mission critical applications in Enterprise, Government, Healthcare and Retail applications."

"With more workers going mobile and depending on tablets in a range of challenging environments, a keyboard built to be as reliable as our Toughpad tablets can be an essential component of workers' toolboxes to ensure they can maximize productivity anywhere in the field," said Dan Diliberti, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Tablets, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America. "Panasonic and iKey share a commitment to the value that true mobility requires durability, and we're excited to make this accessory available to our customers."

With tablets ranging from 7 to 20 inches in size, all with unique design and security features to enable maximum productivity and long-term value, Toughpad tablets are built to connect mission critical workers with the data they need to do their jobs anywhere, at any time.

Panasonic's 10-inch Toughpad FZ-G1 is a fully rugged tablet PC featuring an Intel® Core™ i5 processor and Windows 8.1 Pro, enabling workers to achieve desktop-class performance in the field. The tablet is tested to meet MIL-STD-810G specifications for drops/falls, shock, vibration, altitude, humidity and extreme temperatures; as well as IP65 standards for rain and dust resistance. Other enterprise-grade features include a daylight-viewable screen, user-replaceable battery, a heightened level of security and a high degree of configuration options.

However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
