The keyboard has two usable USB port, which means on connecting to the tablet, one will get two extra USb ports. These can be used to connect a mouse and flash drive. Other features include free stylus for resistive screen, USB connector, adjustable clamp, kick-back stand for using the tablet as a mini laptop and a protective leather cover for easy storage and portability.

Ashish Garg, Director, Zync Global said, “The year 2012 saw a lot of new tablets in all sizes under the Zync umbrella. After successfully launching keyboards for 7 inch tablets, we felt that it was the apt time to launch a keyboard for 9.7inch devices as users prefer to use it as a mini laptop for entertainment purposes. Users demanded for a keyboard which could be used for larger screens and this was seen with the success of our Z1000 model. The keyboard can be used for multiple purposes and is portable to carry around while travelling too.”

Zync’s own 9.7-incher Z1000 features 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM, HD Display, 3G, Bluetooth and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. As aforesaid, it can be used with other 9.7-inch Android tablets. Some affordable 9.7-inch Android tablet options in the market include iBall’s dual-core Slide i9702 and Mercury’s mTab Rio. The iBall Slide i9702 features a quad-core G400 Mali graphics processor and 1GB DDR3 RAM, dual camera and runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich. On the other hand, the Mercury mTab Rio comes with a 1.2GHz processor, 1GB DDR3 RAM, support for Wi-Fi and runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
