Computer accessory manufacturer Kensington Computer Products Group has five new products for VARs offering tablet computers in the SMB and education markets.
“Kensington recognizes the growing demand and new usage pattern for tablet computers, particularly the iPad,” says Rob Humphrey, Kensington’s director of security products. “While thousands of iOS applications have been created to serve POS environments, very little has been offered on the ‘hardware’ side. So, we are particularly excited about these new products because we believe that they will greatly benefit point of sale opportunities, enhance the user experience, and improve security policies.”
