Logitech Unveils Mouse Designed for Living Room
Logitech Wireless Mouse M515 Makes Browsing from the Sofa Easy
FREMONT, Calif. — Jan. 21, 2011 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) unveiled the Logitech® Wireless Mouse M515, delivering easy navigation from soft surfaces like your sofa, bed or a pillow. The Logitech Wireless Mouse M515 features a sealed bottom case that makes gliding on fabric easy and worry free, and a hand-detection sensor so the mouse is only active when you want it to be.
“Millions of people are connecting their computer to the TV, and the M515 mouse was built to address the unique needs of this experience,” said Denis Fayolle, Logitech. “As technology evolves and consumers’ habits change, Logitech continues to develop navigation devices that make it easier to control and access the things people love to do in the digital world.”
With its hand-detection sensor, the Logitech Wireless Mouse M515 is active only when you’re gripping it — the mouse is only active when you want it to be, and it stays asleep when you don’t. A sealed bottom — so fabric fuzz won’t collect in the sensor opening — gives you cursor control no matter what surface you’re using your mouse on. And the easy-gliding base makes mousing around on couches (and blankets, cushions, clothing, carpets, even desks) easy. Also featuring effortless Logitech® Hyper-Fast Scrolling, the M515 mouse lets you coast smoothly through long blogs or social networking feeds. And you can switch to click-to-click mode when you need more control.
Logitech’s newest mouse also offers up to two years of battery life, helping you save time and money by eliminating the need to change batteries frequently. And, you’ll enjoy plug-and-forget wireless connectivity thanks to the tiny Logitech® Unifying receiver. The receiver stays in your laptop so it’s less likely to be lost, and gives you a reliable connection with virtually no delays or dropouts. Plus, you can easily add other Unifying-compatible mice and keyboards to the same receiver.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Wireless Mouse M515 is expected to be available in Europe beginning in April for a suggested retail price of €49.99. For more information please visit www.logitech.com.
