Plug and Forget with the Logitech VX Nano Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks
World’s Smallest USB Receiver for Mice Simplifies Life for On-The-Road Notebook Users
FREMONT, Calif. — July 23, 2007 — The next big thing in notebook mice is really small. Logitech (SWX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI), the world’s leading manufacturer of computer mice, today introduced the Logitech® VX Nano Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks. The mouse’s plug-and-forget nano-receiver provides highly mobile notebook PC and MacBook® users with a mouse that simplifies life on the road. Because the USB receiver is so small and is nearly flush with the notebook, people no longer need to constantly plug and unplug it when moving from place to place.
“More and more laptop users are abandoning the touch pad in favor of a cordless notebook mouse,” said Rory Dooley, Logitech senior vice president and general manager of the Control Devices business unit. “However, with most notebook mice, the size of the receiver forces people to plug and unplug the receiver each time they use the laptop. Because we were able to make the nano-receiver so small, it can remain plugged into the laptop at all times so on-the-go notebook users save valuable time and never have to worry about where the receiver is.”
The VX Nano mouse’s plug-and-forget nano-receiver is the world’s smallest USB receiver for mice (when compared with other 27 MHz USB receivers for notebook mice commercially available as of March 1, 2007). When plugged into a laptop, the nano-receiver is nearly flush against the notebook – protruding just 8 mm from the edge of the computer. As a result, notebook users no longer have to worry about the receiver getting lost or snagged. Instead, people can plug in the nano-receiver once and then forget about it – the VX Nano mouse is always ready for use.
Advanced Scrolling and Performance
To maximize productivity, the VX Nano mouse features the MicroGear™ Precision Scroll Wheel, which Logitech introduced last fall in the Logitech® MX™ Revolution cordless laser mouse and VX Revolution™ cordless laser mouse for notebooks. When the wheel is in hyper-fast scrolling mode, people can fly through long documents with the flick of a finger. To shift to the precise, click-to-click scrolling mode, people need only press and click the scroll wheel. The mouse’s Forward and Back buttons enable effortless navigation of Web pages and documents, while a One-Touch™ search button allows people to instantly display results from a favorite search engine. A laser engine ensures smooth cursor control and precision tracking on virtually any surface, and Logitech’s 2.4 GHz digital cordless technology provides a robust wireless connection.
Low Profile, Ultra-Portable Design
A premium mouse for the on-the-go road warrior, the VX Nano mouse’s low-profile, ultra-portable design ensures that it slips easily into a notebook bag, pocket or purse, while the contoured shape and soft rubber grip provide exceptional comfort. The base of the VX Nano mouse has a trap door that, when opened, reveals two AAA batteries and a storage compartment for the nano-receiver.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech VX Nano Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in late August for a suggested retail price of $69.99 (U.S.).
