Logitech M600 takes Magic Mouse cues
Logitech chose Wednesday to unveil its own alternative to the Magic Mouse. The Touch Mouse M600 uses the same concept of an all-touch surface as Apple but with the technology behind its Cube mobile mouse. Having the larger surface solves some of the issues of the Cube, letting users left- and right-click more naturally while opening the door to horizontal scrolling along with the vertical.
The teardrop shape is consciously designed as ambidextrous. It keeps using 2.4GHz RF for wireless and connects to a computer through its signature USB Unifying receiver. Although intended for Windows 7 users, the mouse should still technically support the Mac.
Stores should get the Touch Mouse M600 later this month for $70, although pre-orders are starting immediately.
