Logitech has been making protective cases and keyboards for a number of tablets for almost as long as tablets have been around. This week Logitech has announced the launch of some new accessories for the Samsung Galaxy Tab tablets of different sorts. One of those accessories is the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1.
Logitech has been producing some of the best mice for gaming and general computer use on the market for a number of years. Logitech has rolled out its latest rodent called the Ultrathin Touch Mouse. The new mouse is designed specifically for users looking for a sleek and svelte mouse to match their thin Ultrabook or Mac computer.
Aiming to "dispel wireless gaming myths" with its ability to work with 250 hours of "gaming battery life" as well as a new Delta Zero sensor, the Logitech G602 arrives this week. This device is indeed a wireless gaming mouse, connecting to your computer with its own unique wireless protocol (with a 2.4GHz wireless connection) - similar to that of the G peripherals announced earlier this year. This mouse offers up to 2 meters/second (80ips) with Logitech Gaming Software and it works with both Windows and Mac operating systems right out of the box.
Logitech has announced two new folio products aimed towards iPad Mini owners who want a bit of protection and a mobile keyboard without bidding farewell to the tablet's thin form factor. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio and Folio Protective Case are both aimed at the smaller iPad model, and promise to be both ultrathin and ultralight without compromising in quality.
Logitech has announced a new wireless keyboard that comes with a built-in trackpad. The TK820 is a new teardrop-shaped keyboard that includes a chiclet style keyboard layout and a huge trackpad built in on the right side. It's not quite as large as Apple's Magic Trackpad or the company's own Wireless Touchpad, but it's larger than any laptop trackpad we've seen, at least.
Logitech has taken the wraps off its new Z600 Bluetooth speakers, which it is specifically aiming at those with ultrabooks and Mac computers with its design, though they'll work with any device with Bluetooth. The speakers support connection with multiple devices at the same time, allowing the user to toggle between those devices by pausing one audio stream and firing up another.
Logitech has broken its smartphone universal remote bridge away from its dedicated remotes, and will offer it as a standalone gadget for iPhone and Android users as the Harmony Ultimate Hub. The Hub had previously been available only as part of a bundle with the Harmony Ultimate and Harmony Smart Control, but will be sold separately for the first time in August for those who only want to turn their phone into a universal remote.
Apple is adding physical game controller support in iOS7, and the first gamepad hardware for the iPhone has apparently been caught in the wild. The Logitech-made snap-on gadget is "large enough to fit an iPhone 5" Kotaku says, and indeed has a Lightning connector meaning those with older versions of Apple's handset will either have to upgrade or hope Logitech and others tipped to join in the hardware push will release versions with the older 30-pin connector.
Chalk up another Kickstarter success, with Logitech buying up TT Design Labs, the team behind the $223k funded TidyTilt case for the iPhone. The deal - which will see TT Design Labs' two man team join Logitech - brings not only TidyTilt but the company's next products, TidyTilt+ and JustMount, under the Logitech umbrella, with availability for two out of the three to begin in a few weeks time.
Logitech isn't short on keyboards for the iPad, but for those sick of changing batteries its new wired version may be the answer. Billed as ideal for the classroom - where, as Logitech points out, more and more schools are deploying Apple's tablet as a learning aid - the new 'board would also work in a home desktop setup, with versions for both the new Lightning port on the iPad mini and fourth-gen iPad Retina, and a Dock Connector model for older slates.
Ultimate Ears has launched a new portable speaker, the UE BOOM, which the Logitech-owned audio company claims is no normal Bluetooth gadget but in fact the "first social music player." The cylindrical BOOM can run for up to 15 hours on its internal battery, while the fabric outer skin is waterproof for use poolside.
