Logitech Launches New Mice and Touchpad for Windows 8Wed, Oct 10, 2012 - 2:51 PM
Today Logitech announced a new lineup of products designed for easy and intuitive navigation of Windows 8. Available later this month, the Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650, Logitech Touch Mouse T620 and Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 are each specifically designed to work with the Windows 8 touch interface.
The Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 features a large, ultra-smooth glass touch-surface that supports Windows 8 gestures, and speeds up navigation among windows while giving your fingers more room to roam. The Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 will be available beginning in October 2012, for a suggested retail price of $79.99.
For those looking for a mouse with an ultra-sleek design, the Logitech Touch Mouse T620 provides a full touch-surface for fluid navigation. Similar to the touchpad, you have the freedom to gesture wherever your fingers rest on the mouse – even on the edges – so everything you do feels natural and intuitive, including horizontal and vertical scrolling, and app switching. The Logitech Touch Mouse T620 will be available beginning in October 2012, for a suggested retail price of $69.99.
The Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 goes beyond traditional mouse functionality by letting you quickly and easily access popular elements of the operating system. It features a glass touch-surface that is designed for smooth horizontal and vertical scrolling with your fingers, and you can click anywhere on the front of the touch zone to go directly to the Windows 8 Start Screen to access your favorite apps. The Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 will be available beginning in October 2012, for a suggested retail price of $49.99.
“This new family of products takes the traditional mouse functionality you’re used to and optimizes it for the navigation experience offered by Windows 8,” said Mike Culver, vice president of brand development for consumer computing platforms at Logitech. “Our new mice and touchpad replicate the touch-screen experience that you’ve grown accustomed to on smartphones and tablets. With Windows 8 now offering up a similar touch experience, our products give you quick, easy and dynamic access to the core elements of the new interface.”
