Belkin SpeedPad N52te, gaming accessory

The N52te is a next generation device developed by Belkin, which is a communication system for gamers that includes keyboard and mouse capabilities. It has been designed to help players who primarily play first-person shooter titles, online multiplayer role-playing games, and real-time strategy games. The SpeedPad complements the conventional keyboard and mouse with a series of programmable keys, scroll wheel, direction pad and a surface to support the hand comfortably.

It is an evolution of the N52 model, to which new features have been added such as internal memory to save different user profiles and new software developed by Razer. Other novelties are the backlighting of its keys and scroll wheels to play in dark conditions.

The driver for this device in its Mac version is Universal Binary, according to Belkin.
