diNovo Keyboard Mac
Logitech this morning rounded out its holiday lineup and announced a more Mac-friendly addition to its diNovo range. The simply-titled diNovo Keyboard Mac Edition is a lower-cost alternative to the conversion of the diNovo Edge and drops the touchpad controls but keeps the particularly thin profile (0.87in) and notebook-style keys with a slightly deeper, more comfortable travel. The new keyboard expands on Apple's own designs by including not just shortcuts for Dashboard, Expose and media playback but also Cover Flow, Spaces, and common apps like iChat, Mail and Safari.
New Logitech keyboard trio
Logitech has started its week in earnest on Tuesday with the launch of three keyboards, including one which touts high-contrast backlighting to render the keys visible in the dark. The Illuminated Keyboard is also said is one of Logitech's thinnest keyboards ever at 0.37in thick, but has the layout of a full desktop keyboard. The keys are unique as well; though they have the speed of a notebook-style movement, they have a slightly longer travel that Logitech claims is more comfortable. The keyboard is currently considered a Windows-only model and ships in October for $80.
diNovo mini and Z Cinema
Accessory maker Logitech will have two products available at the CES show floor geared towards home theater PCs, according to information released ahead of the show. The diNovo mini (pictured at top) scales back the full-size diNovo Edge to a compact form. In addition to smaller keys, it switches from a general trackpad to a directional pad and includes specialized media controls; in home theater environments such as Windows Media Center, the controls let users adjust sound and steer media playback without needing a separate remote. The smaller diNovo is officially intended for Windows XP and Vista systems and should be available later in January. Pricing is expected to reach $100.
