ZAGG Inc., a leading producer, designer, and distributor of electronics accessories for protecting and enhancing the mobile experience, including the popular invisibleSHIELD, ZAGGskins, ZAGGbuds, and ZAGGsparq brands, has been named an International CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for one of their upcoming products, ZAGGmate. This is the third year in a row that ZAGG products have been recognized with this prestigious industry award.
ZAGGmate is a protective and functional companion to the Apple iPad that accentuates both the appearance and utility of Apple’s innovative device. Made from aircraft-grade aluminum with a high quality finish, the patent-pending ZAGGmate matches the design, look and feel of the Apple iPad. It features a simple and innovative hinge stand for viewing and typing in both portrait and landscape mode. In addition, a built-in wireless Bluetooth keyboard allows for fast, responsive typing and interaction with the iPad’s features. For more information about the ZAGGmate, please visit [ZAGG.com/ZAGGmate].
“People are going to love the sleek and streamlined look of the ZAGGmate which perfectly complements the iPad,” said Robert G. Pedersen II, President and CEO of ZAGG. “We set out to create the ultimate must-have accessory for the hottest selling device this Holiday Season. With a full Bluetooth keyboard, flexible stand, scratch and shock protection all in one thin, portable solution, consumers will enjoy interacting with their iPad even more.”
The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. It is sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the producer of the [International CES], the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow.
ZAGGmate is slated for release on November 26th at select retailers and will be displayed at the 2011 International CES, which runs January 6-9, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering honoree products are also featured on [CESweb.org/Innovations]. The ZAGGmate with Keyboard will be priced at $99.99, and a version without the keyboard will be priced at $69.99.

Details will soon be announced. For now, you may want to get a head start and follow [@MyRealityTech] on Twitter and “like” us on [Facebook] if you have not already done so. As with all our other contests, a substantial number of prizes will be awarded via these two avenues, so it pays to follow us!
