Cebit 2006: Logitech goes mouse crazy

CeBIT 2006, Computers

Logitech celebrated 25 years in existence by launching a vast number of new products at Cebit – including a laser tracking mouse for everyone – gamers, left-handers, notebook and PC users, working on virtually any surface and with much greater precision than traditional optical units.

There’s a special edition of the award-winning Logitech G7 Laser Cordless Mouse, featuring a compact, black LAN case – making it easy for gamers to take their mouse to competitions without getting a bashing. The G7 uses 2.4 GHz digital cordless technology and features a 2000 dpi laser engine. No price as yet.

For left-handers (like myself), the Logitech MX610 Left-Hand Laser Cordless Mouse (pictured) has a sculpted design for a better fit to the hand. It features Logitech’s precision laser tracking system, advanced cordless technology, extensive navigation controls, and, rather strangely, email and instant message notification lights. Should be available in April for around £60.

The company’s new corded Logitech MX 400 Precision Laser Mouse offers laser performance, a sculpted right-hand fit and a comfortable "soft-touch grip" for desktop PC users. Available in April for around £40. The Logitech V150 Laser Mouse for Notebooks includes precision laser tracking technology that works on more surfaces than optical technology – so more flexibility of use. The plug-and-play USB mouse will be available in June for around £30.
