Honorees: Logitech MX Revolution Cordless Laser Mouse, Logitech Wireless DJ Music System
FREMONT, Calif. — Nov. 7, 2006 — Logitech (SWX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced that its Logitech® MX™ Revolution cordless laser mouse and Logitech® Wireless DJ™ Music System have received the Popular Science Magazine Best of What´s New award. Named among the Popular Science Magazine´s top 100 tech innovations of 2006, the winners of this award are “breakthrough products and technologies that represent a significant leap in their categories.”
“Best of What´s New is the ultimate Popular Science accolade, representing a year´s worth of work evaluating thousands of products,” said Popular Science Editor Mark Jannot. “These awards honor innovations that not only impact the way we live today, but change the way we think about the future.”
The Logitech MX Revolution Mouse
Named a winner in Popular Science´s Computing category, the Logitech MX Revolution mouse marks a radical change in navigating complex and abundant digital content. It features hyper-fast scrolling with a revolutionary alloy wheel — the MicroGear™ Precision Scroll Wheel — that spins freely for up to seven seconds, spanning hundreds of pages with a single flick of the finger and setting a new benchmark in scrolling efficiency. An innovative One-Touch™ Search feature allows people to select a word or phrase on a Web page or in a document and, with a single click, view Internet search results on that subject. The stylish design is rooted in ergonomic principles, with a dramatic thumb scoop, a rubber thumb grip and a contoured right-hand shape that make gripping and moving the mouse more comfortable — it becomes a nearly imperceptible extension of the hand. The Logitech MX Revolution mouse is available worldwide and has a suggested retail price of $99.99 in the U.S.
The Logitech Wireless DJ Music System
Honored in Popular Science´s Home Entertainment category, the Logitech Wireless DJ Music System enables people to stream digital music from their PC to any stereo in their home and control it all from the palm of their hand. The three-piece system quickly connects the PC to a home-entertainment center or speaker system using Logitech´s Music Anywhere™ wireless technology, which combines plug-and-play simplicity with the clarity of digital audio. The system plays any PC audio format, including MP3, iTunes® (AAC), WMA, Internet radio, and podcasts. And the stylish, long-range Wireless DJ remote, with its display and scroll wheel, makes it easy to navigate an entire music collection from the couch, the dining-room table, the bedroom — anywhere. The Wireless DJ remote also includes an active playlist feature, called the DJ List, which allows people to add songs or albums to the queue without stopping the music. The Logitech Wireless DJ Music System, with a suggested retail price of $249.99 in the U.S., is currently available in the U.S. and Europe.
