Logitech announces Logitech Wireless Desktop MK710


Logitech (http://www.logitech.com) has introduced the Logitech Wireless Desktop MK710, which it says is the first keyboard-and-mouse combination to feature up to three years of battery life for both the keyboard and mouse, as well as the tiny Logitech Unifying receiver, Logitech Incurve keys and "hyper-fast" scrolling for the mouse.

To achieve three years of battery life, Logitech Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless technology transmits information much faster and more efficiently than typical 27 MHz wireless systems, according to Rory Dooley, Logitech’s senior vice president and general manager of the Control Devices business unit. What's more, by reducing the amount of time the keyboard and mouse remain in active mode when left idle, the Wireless Desktop MK710 purportedly conserves power and minimizes lag when you resume typing or mousing.

First introduced in August 2009, the Logitech Unifying receiver is so small it can stay in your laptop when you’re moving around. And, a single receiver can be paired with up to six Unifying-compatible Logitech keyboards and mice -- freeing up USB ports.

The low-profile keyboard of the Desktop MK710 features Logitech Incurve keys and a cushioned palm rest. With their concave design, Incurve keys support the shape of your fingertips, while helping guide your fingers to the right keys, according to Dooley. In addition, the soft, rounded edges make it easy for your fingers to glide from key to key, he adds.

The cushioned palm rest gives you a place to rest your hands when you’re not typing. Plus, an LCD dashboard gives you at-a-glance status for Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, Num Lock and battery life.

The midsize laser mouse delivers smooth tracking on a variety of surfaces.The mouse’s sculpted, right-hand shape is designed to guide your hand to a naturally comfortable position and places the three customizable thumb buttons within easy reach, so you can move between Web pages or applications (after downloading of Logitech software).

The Logitech Wireless Desktop MK710 is expected to be available in Europe beginning in February 2010 and in the U.S. beginning in April 2010. It will have a suggested retail price of US$99.99.
