Cordless Mouse Runs Afoot

Logitech has announced the launch of the company's first cordless mouse that doesn't need its own receiver.

The Logitech V270 Cordless Optical Notebook Mouse uses wireless technology to connect with notebook PCs and Apple PowerBook notebooks that have an integrated Bluetooth receiver. It provides mobile professionals a one-piece, ultra-portable alternative to the touchpad.

"This is a realisation of how many cordless computer peripherals could work in the future - you turn them on and they directly connect with the computer - no external receiver necessary," said Moninder Jain, director, South Asia, Logitech "We've taken our best-selling notebook mouse design and removed the receiver to come up with a product that delivers the ultimate in convenience for those who have notebooks enabled with Bluetooth wireless technology."

The mouse is based on the design of the Logitech Cordless Optical Mouse for Notebooks. Charcoal gray in color, it uses Bluetooth 1.2 wireless technology, which features adaptive frequency to reduce the chance of interference from other 2.4 GHz wireless devices such as Wi-Fi notebooks or cordless telephones.

With typical use, the mouse achieves a battery life of up to three months, which can be extended with an on/off switch. It also features a low-battery indicator light to remove dead batteries. It has a 1000 dpi optical engine, providing smooth, precision tracking on a wide variety of surfaces - important for the mobile professional who uses the mouse on the road.
