Logitech Expands Touchpad Keyboards

 

NEWARK, CALIF. — Logitech unveiled a wireless keyboard with a Window 8-friendly integrated touchpad.

The TK820 keyboard, which uses the company’s proprietary Unifying 2.4GHz wireless receiver, has a built-in 4-inch touchpad that supports 13 multi-touch Windows 8 swipes. Consumers must download Logitech’s Set- Point software; the software also lets users customize keyboard settings and hot keys.

Unifying technology enables consumers to use up to six compatible devices with just one nano receiver.

Design features include a slim profile; keys with rounded edges; and the company’s PerfectStroke system, meant to evenly distribute typing pressure.

The TK820 operates via four AA batteries; battery life is said to be six months. There is a battery-indicator light.

Suggested retail is $99.99. It will be available this month.

Logitech also said it now has a white version available of its K400 wireless touch keyboard. This model also has a built-in touchpad, although it’s slightly smaller at 3.5 inches. It also uses a Unifying wireless receiver.

The white K400 will be available in September for a $39.99 suggested retail.
