13

Logitech has introduced 3 accessories specifically designed for Windows 8, and which brings the smoothness of the touch interaction with Windows 8 straight to even desktop PCs.

The Zone Touch Mouse T400 is pretty close to a traditional mouse, but with a small glass track pad which helps with horizontal and vertical scrolling, and has dedicated keys for going home and flipping through apps.  The device sports an 18 month battery life and costs  $49.99.

The Touch Mouse T620 has a much larger touch surface, supports 6 Windows 8 gestures which can be customized, has 180 day battery life and will set you back $69.99.

The Touchpad T650 has a spacious glass touch surface, supports multiple Windows 8 gestures and has 30 days battery life, and can be used while recharging via USB. It will cost $79.99.

All three will be available in the US and Europe this month.

      Gives me hope that an upgrade for desktop users won’t be all that painful .. as long as you upgrade your current pointing device.

    Pretty nice, but why are these things so pricey? Probably better off saving that money for a touch screen.

      Just because it’s wireless! (probably paying IP license fees)

    I think if you feel the need to buy a new type of device for your desktop (and not just use either a basic traditional, or standard re-programmable mouse) the best fit, straddling both worlds, would be the Touch Mouse T620.

    Just touhpad looks good but too pricey for no reason. As for the rest of them there is much better and much cooler Microsoft mouses exist.

    Uau the t620 seems awesome, question though. will it work properly as a normal mouse for gaming?

  • Smity Smiter

    When using the touchpad, it’ll still move the cursor right?
    But with all the “touch-gestures” support I believe.

    Interesting, just watched the promo video for the T650:

    I can imagine using a device like that for the majority of my day-to-day navigation, only using the mouse for document creation and gaming.

    Would be best for people who upgrades from existing non-touch devices to Windows 8. Should package as an upgrade bundle.
