The new MoGo Dapter from Newton Peripherals is world's smallest Bluetooth adapter, it's only slightly bigger than a normal USB connector.
The company says they've designed the MoGo Dapter specifically for mobile users. With the MoGo Dapter they no longer need bulkier adapters. The device is so small that you can leave it plugged into your notebook the whole time, Newton Peripherals claims it's "plug it and forget it".
"The MoGo Dapter is consistent with our corporate objective of producing powerful and easy-to-use products that enable mobility on the go," said Matthew Westover, Newton Peripherals' President and Chief Executive Officer. "Many laptop computer users refuse to use adapters of any kind, because they can catch, break off or become lost. As a result, they are not getting as much as they can from their mobile computing experience. The MoGo Dapter solves that challenge, and represents a significant step forward. We believe the ultra-low profile of the Dapter will become the standard design for adapters of all kinds."
