Logitech Debuts Windows 8 Touch Devices

Posted by at 11:38 am on October 16, 2012

Logitech has announced a new lineup of products designed for easy and intuitive navigation of Windows 8. 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.

Mike Culver, vice president of brand development for consumer computing platforms at Logitech says, “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.”

Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650

The Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 features a large, ultra-smooth glass touchsurface that supports Windows 8 gestures, and speeds up navigation among windows.

You can perform the 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.

The touchpad consists of one large touch-area with a glass surface that provides smooth gliding for greater gesture and cursor control. You can left- or right-click anywhere on the surface of the touchpad, and it includes an embedded sensor to ensure precise tracking.

Logitech Touch Mouse T620

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.

This smooth wireless mouse has designed-for-comfort curves and a laser-grade optical sensor that ensures precision tracking on most surfaces.

Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400

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.

With a rubber grip wrapping the comfortable shape – the mouse couples the standard functionality found in a more traditional mouse with smooth horizontal and vertical scrolling.

Battery Life

Logitech says that the Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 recharges through USB and has up to one month of battery life on a full charge, and an On/Off switch with a low-battery indicator light. The Touch Mouse T620 has a six-month battery life, and the Zone Touch Mouse T400 has an 18-month battery life. Similar to the touchpad, the Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 also features an On/Off switch and a low battery indicator light.

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650, Logitech Touch Mouse T620 and Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 are expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in October 2012, for a suggested retail price of $79.99, $69.99 and $49.99, respectively.
