Logitech India has unveiled a range of accessories optimised for Microsoft's new operating system Windows 8.
The accessories are the Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400, Logitech Touch Mouse T620, Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650, Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400R and Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810.
The Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 is a traditional two-button mouse with a glass touch surface in between. The touch surface is designed for 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 favourite apps.
Logitech Touch Mouse T620 is an all-touch mouse (reminiscent of Apple's Magic Mouse). 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 T620 features a laser-grade optical sensor that ensures precision tracking on most surfaces.
The Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 is a trackpad (not dissimilar to Apple's Magic Trackpad) that comes equipped with 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. You can perform basic point, click and scroll functions anywhere your fingers rest on the touch surface, while also taking advantage of Windows 8 gestures, such as edge gestures for app switching, app bar and charms bar activation, pinch-to-zoom and three-finger swipe to take you back to the Start Screen.
Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400R is a portable keyboard cum trackpad combo that targets users looking for a more convenient way to type on/ navigate their home theatre system. The keyboard features one touch function keys for media control and Windows 8 as well, while the 3.5-inch built-in touchpad makes vertical and horizontal scrolling intuitive. The device works over 2.4GHz wireless connection with a range of 10 metres.
The Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 is a rechargeable backlit keyboard. The device is able to connect to three Bluetooth devices, with dedicated buttons to switch between the devices quickly. The Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 comes loaded with specific keys to help you easily navigate the new Windows 8 operating system, such as the App Switching function key that allows you to quickly switch among your open apps.Pricing and availability
