Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 5000 Laser
Logitech plan for world domination apparently includes smothering us in our sleep with product announcements. Hot on the heels of their new gaming products, Logitech announces a wireless desktop set for “the rest of us”, the Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 5000 Laser. They are now in the running with Microsoft for the most unweildy product name award.
Borrowing the LCD from their G15 Gaming Keyboard (why, God…why?), the MX 5000 Laser includes “touch-sensitive” media controls that are ready for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. We thought all keyboards were “touch-sensitive”, but apparently, this is better. The wireless connectivity comes via Bluetooth 2.0, and the keyboard includes a thoughtful “Sync” button that allows you to sync your data with your Bluetooth phone automagically.
The Laser mouse included in the set is only 800dpi, but includes a battery meter and charging cradle. It’s also got a tilt-wheel, so apparently they aren’t just borrowing product name methodology from Microsoft. The whole kit and kaboodle will run you $150, no word on when the kaboodle might be available for purchase separately from the kit.
