PRESTIGIO and CLEVETURA finalize work on the world's first laptop with touchpad on keyboard

The Prestigio brand, owned by ASBISc Enterprises Plc, a leading distributor of IT and CE products on emerging markets of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, together with Clevetura finalizes work on the world's first laptop with a built-in touch panel in TouchOnKeys™ technology. It is the world’s first laptop with a huge touchpad embedded right into the keys.

 Intensive work on this laptop has been going on for a year. Especially for this model, Clevetura has developed a unique second-generation TouchOnKeys™ keyboard module with improved touch function. More than 10 patents have been filed to protect this technology. For sale this product will be available in September 2021. 

The new powerful 14-inch Intel-based laptop is a premium device for those who strive to keep up with trends and demand the latest technologies. You can use it for work, studies or entertainment. But most importantly, you're in for a completely unique experience. The heart of the notebook is the TouchOnKeys™ technology, which complements the keyboard with the functionality of a touchpad. In this way, the touchpad no longer takes up a separate space, since it is the almost entire surface of the keyboard. 

Ivan Malmyha, Head at Prestigio Consumer, commented: “This project follows up on our earlier collaborations with Clevetura. Previous products based on TouchOnKeys™ technology, such as the Click&Touch and Click&Touch 2 multimedia keyboards, won Red Dot Awards for best design in 2020 and 2021. These products are already being successfully marketed in Europe and Japan. We're happy with our intensive collaboration and are looking forward to continuing it in the future.” 

Working on a new laptop becomes more convenient because thanks to the technology of intelligent gesture recognition, the built-in touchpad of the keyboard automatically switches between text input and touch modes. At the same time, the keys have a scissor mechanism with a comfortable 1.2 mm stroke, i.e. pressing is like on a regular keyboard. 

Using the touchpad on the keyboard, you can move the cursor and objects on the screen, scroll pages, resize them, and control the volume and brightness of the screen. Adjustable key backlight helps to adapt to any lighting conditions. 

Mike Krupenkov, CEO of Clevetura, commented:“Using a TouchOnKeys™ laptop is more effective than using a traditional laptop because you don't have to constantly move your hands to a separate touchpad. Less distracting manipulations means more efficiency. There is no need to adapt and change habits - the gestures in TouchOnKeys™ are the same as on the touchpad. I'm sure the user will greatly appreciate the world's first laptop without a separate touchpad that is no longer needed.”
