Requests for the FrogPad one-handed keyboard in Australia and New Zealand have been so high, the company will open a Sydney office, according to a post by founder and CEO, Linda Marroquin, on the company's FrogBlog discussion forum.
The company, which describes its five-year ascendance from unknown peripheral developer to little-known peripheral developer as "slow and meticulous", has recently released a Bluetooth-enabled version of the FrogPad, called iFrog.
Priced at $US225, the iFrog includes drivers for Pocket PC, Palm, Symbian and Windows SmartPhone devices developed by Sydney-based wireless technology developer cc2GO.
Compatibility with Java and unified messaging clients is also promised by the Texas-based manufacturer.
The company is also looking into integrating a mouse or trackball into the FrogPad.
A FrogTalk wireless headset is also on the cards. It promises to be so comfortable users can wear it all day without discomfort.
Marroquin describes it as "not dorky, because it is realy (sic) beautiful".
FrogTalk launches globally on October 26.
