Logitech designs, manufactures and markets personal interface
products that enable people to effectively work, play, and communicate
in the digital
world. The company's products combine essential core
technologies, continuing innovation, award-winning industrial design
and excellent price performance.
During the past few years, Logitech has significantly
broadened its product offering and increased its presence in the retail
sector, as consumers enhance their basic systems with more fully featured
interface devices that add functionality and cordless freedom to their
desktops, as well as supplementary devices designed for new applications
and specific purposes such as gaming, multimedia or visual communication
on the Internet.
Today, Logitech's retail business accounts for more than
80 percent of its revenue. To provide the market with a broadening array
of best-of-category products, Logitech's business model calls for supplementing
its internal engineering and manufacturing strength with additional
products and technologies through a combination of strategic acquisitions
and industry partnerships.
There has been a huge push in the industry toward wireless
devices. Logitech, a forerunner in this push, offered one of the best
wireless mouse solutions with its MX700 (which operates on standard
Radio Frequency technology). Now with the MX900, Logitech has integrated
Bluetooth into the charging base, turning it into a wireless hub for
Bluetooth enabled devices (such as PDAs, cell phones, headsets, printers,
keyboards, etc…). This is a great idea, and will certainly make it much
simpler for those who use Bluetooth devices.
More About Bluetooth Bluetooth is a standard wireless technology
aimed at allowing users to make effortless, fast connections between
various devices, such as mobile devices and computers. The sophisticated
mode of transmission ensures protection from interference, increased
security of data and offers greater wireless range. Your Bluetooth
devices by Logitech will work up to 10 meters away from the included
Bluetooth wireless hub.
Bluetooth had a slow go at it initially when it was first introduced,
as people are sometimes skeptical of such leaps in technology. However,
many manufacturers are now providing Bluetooth devices, and Logitech,
a company which has always pushed the 'technical' envelope has decided
to go one step further and couple its mouse with this handy hub/charging
What this means is that there will be less clutter on your desk, no
wire messes and seamless integration.
