With Karma there’s no more hunting for an accommodating coffee shop to complete and upload a project, or working out of a dingy hotel room with expensive and flaky internet. Karma works where you work. It’s designed to get out of the way so you can get stuff done.

Pre-order your Karma Go now and receive special holiday pricing of $99 ($50 off the normal price of $149). Offer ends soon, so grab it while you can!
