Logitech readies touch mice, touchpad for Windows 8

updated 07:07 am EDT, Wed October 10, 2012

Gesture control, glass touch surfaces added to peripherals

Logitech has shown off two new mice and a trackpad designed with Windows 8 in mind. The Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650, Touch Mouse T620, and Zone Touch Mouse T400 do away with physical buttons for the most part, instead replacing them with touch-sensitive areas for scrolling and gesture controls.

The Touchpad works similar to Apple's Magic Trackpad, with a large glass surface on a gradual incline. It allows for basic point, click, and scroll functions as well as Windows 8 gestures such as app switching at the edge, charms bar activation, and pinch-to-zoom. The T620 Touch Mouse uses the same design as the M600 from earlier in the year, but also uses Windows 8 gestures. The Zone Touch Mouse T400 is more traditional rubberized mouse, with a glass touch strip instead of a scroll wheel, which can also be tapped at the front to open up the Windows 8 Start Screen.

All three are set for release this month, with the Touchpad T650 hitting retail at $80, while the Touch Mouse T620 and Zone Touch Mouse T400 will cost $70 and $50 respectively.
