The distributor will handle all UK sales of the new peripheral lines from Logitech, which has announced plans to provide hardware that caters specifically to the needs of the system builder – with the aim of allowing them to differentiate their product ranges and keep costs down.

The new range includes the Logitech Deluxe 650 Cordless Desktop, which includes a 800dpi 3-button cordless optical wheel mouse and a cordless keyboard, designed for bundling with home PCs.

The Logitech RX1000 Laser Mouse uses a high performance laser to provide 20 times the tracking power of a standard optical mouse, and also boasts a 1000dpi resolution.

Meanwhile, the Logitech Internet 350 Keyboard USB has driver-free hot keys for accessing web, email and multimedia functions – while the Logitech Value Keyboard provides an entry-level alternative.

“Logitech OEM is dedicated to the system builder market and working with VIP will help us to focus even further on key target markets,” said Chris Spearing, Logitech UK country manager. “We look forward to working with VIP as a valued OEM distributor partner.”
