Logitech unveils thin diNovo Edge keyboard

Logitech diNovo Edge

Logitech's diNovo desktop has largely remained unchanged since its introduction in 2003, but has only lost some of its initial luster as a benchmark of design. The company is set to regain that interest by today's announcement of the diNovo Edge Bluetooth keyboard. The Edge is sharp break from the earlier design and uses an extremely thin, slab-like shape with touch-sensitive controls in place of earlier push buttons. The number pad has been replaced by a volume scroll pad as well as a unique navigation controller named the TouchDisc: while not as full-featured as a mouse, the TouchDisc can be used to steer the mouse cursor onscreen and doubles as a scroll wheel when the user makes circular motions. This makes it an ideal control mechanism for a home theater PC, according to Logitech.

The diNovo Edge also addresses a number of criticisms regarding the earlier model: it can now charge directly from a dock instead of relying on disposable batteries, lasting for up to two months on a single charge. It also adds light-up key labels that indicate the current key mode as well as dedicated Vista Start menu and search buttons. As might be expected, the diNovo Edge is considered Logitech's premium keyboard and will cost $200 when it ships in November. Click through for a complete photo.
