(IRVINE, CALIFORNIA— July 7, 2005)Sonnet Technologies, a worldwide leader in upgrades for Apple Macintosh® computers and iPod® digital music players, announces Sidekick, the double-jointed USB 2.0 adapter that bends over backwards and sideways to connect USB devices in small spaces.
Sidekick plugs into recessed or closely spaced USB ports with ease, and its extreme flexibility (180? rotation left-to-right, 180? sweep up-and-down) enables you to position an attached device in nearly any orientation.
Sidekick is short and narrow. Unlike using a cable, there’s no clutter. Laptop users working in tight quarters can conveniently connect a small USB device, regardless of the port location. Sidekick works with any USB device in any computer’s USB port. Sidekick is also an ideal iPod shuffle companion—users can connect their digital music player to any USB port on a variety of computers and displays that normally present challenging or impossible fits (including iMac® G3, eMac®, some iBook® models, Apple Studio Display) without an extension cable or dock. When space is limited and you need to get connected, it’s great to have a Sidekick!
Any computer with a USB 1.1/2.0 port, any device or cable with a standard USB type-A connector
Pricing and Availability
Sidekick (Part no. UAD-SDK) is available today with an MSRP of USD $12.95.
