Logitech releases VX Nano for notebooks

Logitech VX Nano

Logitech this morning unveiled the VX Nano, its adaptation of the earlier VX Revolution mouse to an ultra-compact form built for portables. Virtually eliminating the hassle of carrying an RF adapter, the transmitter included with the system is barely larger than its USB plug -- so small that it can be left in the notebook without fear that it will break off inside a bag, Logitech says. While smaller than the premium model, it still includes the Revolution series' unique scroll wheel that can either spin freely for navigating large documents or turn at a normal speed for websites and other everyday uses.

Also like its larger siblings, the VX Nano sports laser tracking, forward and back shortcuts for skipping through websites, and a search button for queuing web results from highlighted text on a page. A pair of AAA batteries will provide the mouse up to six months of regular use, the company adds, making the device a realistic option for a desktop replacement as well as frequent travelers. Logitech ships the Nano in late August with Mac and Windows support for $70.

    Nice, but why not BT?

    it's nice, but I'd like to have my USB ports free. Why is the Apple Mighty Mouse the only bluetooth mouse on the market that doesn't need an oddball receiver? I'd like a good, solid, multi button BT mouse that uses regular AA sized (not AAA) batteries and scrolls on both directions. Like the Mighty Mouse but chunkier and with real buttons. Until such time as this exists I'll put up with the Mighty Mouse.

    no BT

    Just to prevent a misunderstanding - this Logitech wireless mouse is not Bluetooth, but is RF, operating at the frequency 2.4 GHz.

    here's why not

    I don't know if this would be the case with a bluetooth mouse, but with any other device I use with bluetooth, when it's actively paired/connected to another device nothing else can connect. I wouldn't want my bluetooth connection taken by the mouse when I need to transfer files to devices or sync. Wouldn't a bluetooth mouse monopolize the connection? I don't have a mightymouse nor have I read much about it. Is that the case with the MM?

    re: here's why not...

    Bluetooth is supposed to allow connecting up to seven devices at one time... which is why it is possible to connect the BT Mighty Mouse *and* the BT Apple keyboard at the same time.
