Logitech Puts Windows-8 Button on a Wireless Mouse
Logitech's new mouse features a special Windows 8 button.
Logitech has announced its new M560 wireless mouse that features a little something we haven't seen much before: a Windows 8 button.
The mouse features the renown Logitech Unifying receiver, and it is powered by a single AA battery. Like a lot of other mice from Logitech, it also features the 'Hyper-Fast' scroll wheel, which can have its clicks disabled and go into a 'free-spinning' mode. The mouse also features two extra thumb buttons for navigation, which can be customized in the SetPoint software.
The Windows 8 button featured on the mouse, which Logitech refers to as the 'Windows 8 edge menu button,' brings you straight to the App Bar and Charms Bar. It can also be used to bring up the Metro interface or return to the desktop. Of course, the mouse will also work in conjunction with Windows 7.
Logitech will be releasing the mouse in two colors, white and black, and it will feature an MSRP of $39.99.
