Logitech Desktop Wave Pro

Logitech today put out a more ergonomic pairing of mouse and keyboards through its Cordless Desktop Wave Pro set. The bundle mates a 2.4GHz RF-based wireless Desktop Wave keyboard with a new, similarly ergonomic MX1100 RF mouse to ease the stress on users' hands and wrists over long work periods without forcing users to relearn their control layouts.

The MX1100 in particular adds several conveniences that are often only present in Logitech's higher-end mice, including a scroll wheel that can optionally spin freely to move through large documents as well as a USB connection to charge the mouse from the PC rather than depend solely on batteries or a charging cradle. The Wave keyboard has its own complement of media keys and navigation controls.

Logitech plans a delayed launch for the full Cordless Desktop Wave Pro, shipping it to the US in October for $130; the MX1100 is also available as a stand-alone peripheral without the USB cable and ships late this month for $80. The Wave keyboard is primarily intended for Windows, but both it and the mouse will support Mac OS X for most and all features respectively.

    without forcing users to relearn their control layouts.

    Is that why the F-keys are grouped in threes instead of fours? Or that they've changed the layout of the insert/delete keys?

    bluetooth, anyone?

    Does Logitech have something against the b-word? Maybe they missed the memo from Apple about how all Macs come standard with bluetooth.

    Re: bluetooth

    Maybe you missed the memo that 90 % of the world does NOT own a Mac, and a lot of windows machines do not come with bluetooth.

    And maybe you missed the memo where there are a lot of people running older hardware, which doesn't have bluetooth (even macs!).

    And Logitech makes bluetooth devices, too.
