Logitech and Windows 8 compatibility

While Logitech claims that its exciting new touch devices offer an ideal Windows 8 experience, it adds that its other mice and keyboards will continue to deliver performance and reliability on Windows 8.

 

Commenting on the launch, Mr. Subrotah Biswas, Country Manager, Logitech India and South West Asia, said, “Logitech believes in providing improved consumer experience, aimed towards assisting efficiency and helping consumers to enjoy being absorbed in the digital world. Our new family of products takes the traditional way you use the mouse and equips it for the navigation experience offered by Windows 8. While our new mice and touchpad replicate the touch-screen experience that you’ve grown accustomed to on smartphones and tablets, our newest keyboards are designed to make your Windows 8 experience comfortable and effortless.”

 

These new products are guaranteed to make your Windows 8 experience faster, better and more comfortable.

Logitech claims that users can perform the basic point, click and scroll functions anywhere their 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 Touch Mouse T620

The company claims that 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.

 

This smooth wireless mouse has high style, ergonomic curves that keep your hand happy for hours 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 to access your favourite apps.

 

With a rubber grip wrapping the comfortable shape – and by coupling the standard functionality found in a more traditional mouse with smooth horizontal and vertical scrolling – you’ll be happy exploring your PC or tablet for hours on end.

 

Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810

This thin keyboard is designed to look right at home next to all your devices with its real brushed aluminium and sleek lines, regardless if you’re working on a Windows 8 PC, Apple iPad or Android smartphone.

 

Logitech adds further that to increase the keyboard’s usability in low-light conditions or at night, auto-adjusting illumination ensures the laser-etched key characters are always bright and easy to read. The keyboard also uses proximity detection to turn on the lighting when your hands approach it and automatically dims or brightens, depending on the amount of light in the room.

 

This keyboard is USB rechargeable with 10 days of battery life on a full charge (based on varying user and computing conditions) and features a convenient On/Off switch to help you manage power. The Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 comes loaded with specific keys to help you easily navigate the new Windows 8 operating system, including the App Switching function key that allows you to quickly switch between your open apps.

 

Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400R

Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400R is the perfect navigation device for PC-2-TV, now with built-in support for Win8 navigation gestures. With 2.4GHz unifying reliable connection with up to 10 metres range for the living room, this plug-and-play keyboard is easy to set up and offers long range, reliable wireless connection.

 

Logitech adds that the keyboard features a comfortable living room keyboard layout with one touch function keys for media control and Windows 8 as well as a 3.5-inch built-in touchpad that makes vertical and horizontal scrolling intuitive. And multi-touch navigation makes it easier than ever to point and scroll your way through the Web. The device is also compatible with previous versions of Windows with basic touch gestures. With a 12 months keyboard battery life, you can go for years without the hassle of changing batteries. 

 

Battery life

The Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 recharges through USB and has up to one month of battery life on a full charge. The Logitech Touch Mouse T620 has a six-month battery life, whereas the Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 has an 18-month battery life.
