Logitech launches new Bluetooth keyboard and rechargeable trackpad for Mac

Peripherals manufacturer Logitech has unveiled its new Bluetooth Easy-Switch keyboard as well as a rechargeable trackpad for Mac.

With the ability to pair with up to three Apple devices, Logitech’s new keyboard is designed to make it easier for the user to switch between Mac, iPad and iPhone. Its aluminium design matches Apple’s style, and it has a function which illuminates the keyboard when approached by the users hands, making it easier to use at night or in low light conditions.

The Logitech rechargeable trackpad features multi-touch control, so you can click, scroll, swipe, and zoom to your heart’s content. With a low-profile design and smooth glass surface, the trackpad is designed to replicate a touchscreen experience.

The trackpad has been engineered with embedded precision sensors and resistance to fingerprints and scratches. It is rechargeable through a USB cable and can be used while being recharged. Fully charged, you’ll have one month of power, which can be managed through an On/Off switch. With Bluetooth wireless connectivity, the trackpad also provides up to 30 feet of wireless range.

“Building on Logitech’s history of delivering high quality products, both the keyboard and trackpad have an insightful design that complements your existing Apple devices, and you’ll appreciate their smart power management as well,” said Mike Culver, vice president of brand development for consumer computing platforms at Logitech.

The Logitech Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboard and the Logitech Rechargeable Trackpad are expected to be available in the US and Europe in January 2013, with SRPs of $99.99 and $69.99.
