Gaming accessory maker Mad Catz plans to ship its first game console later this year, a $250 Android-powered box called M.O.J.O. While the micro-console comes with a wireless game controller, some folks prefer a good old-fashioned gaming keyboard.
Now Mad Catz has announced it’s got one of those too. The S.T.R.I.K.E.M mobile keyboard is a wireless keyboard designed for use with tablets and other small Android devices.
Mad Catz says the keyboard has a tablet-sized footprint and supports Bluetooth and NFC for connections with your mobile devices.
While there’s no shortage of keyboards you can use with Android phones, tablets, or game consoles, this is one of the first of those devices designed specifically for gamers. It’s a backlit keyboard with dedicated media buttons, a volume scroll wheel, on-board memory for remembering macro commands, and an optical finger navigation mouse sensor with dedicated mouse buttons.
The keybaord will be available in black, white and red colors in time for the 2013 holiday season.
