Logitech Wave Keyboard

Logitech had its second release of the week on Thursday in launching the Wave keyboard. Its namesake design improves on the conventional approach to ergonomics by recognizing the length and positions of most fingers: both the center and outer keys are elevated, while all keys are the same size and subtly curved to hold the fingers at rest. The palmrest is also cushioned to encourage a proper typing position. In addition to media keys, programmable keys let Macs and PCs assign shortcuts to specific apps, folders, or even specific websites. A Media Center button will automatically trigger Front Row on supporting Macs or Windows Media Center on relevant PCs.

The standard Wave keyboard connects through USB and will ship for $50. A wireless combo version, the Cordless Wave, ships alongside a mouse equipped with laser tracking, a tilting scroll wheel, and programmable side buttons for $90. Both are set to arrive in late August.

    My new kb

    I think I found my new keyboard assuming all of the media keys work with itunes. Biggest problem I have with it so far? No backlit keys.

    yeah but...

    Where's the Mac version ?

    Why are they showing a PC layout on a Mac site ??

    it's all fine and good - but - if they are only going to release a PC version anytime soon - like Logitec usually does - does me no good_

    Thanks again MacNN for the non-Mac related info_

    Peace_

    man.

    uberfu, stop being a mac idiot. The PC layout is shown because it's probably what's available. Logitech has generally been very good about releasing "mac versions" of many of their products, but the only difference is that the Windows key will become the Command key.
