Logitech Brings Back Old School With Trackball

While the mouse as a pointing device has both survived and evolved, the trackball is nearly extinct, except on select smartphones.

Trackballs are wonderful solutions for those with limited desk space, so it's a shame that there aren't more of them. Logitech, however, is revitalizing one of its classic trackball designs in the soon-to-ship Wireless Trackball M570.

Something stationary like a trackball doesn't demand to be wireless, but Logitech has the nano receiver technology so it's seen fit to pair that with the M570. From a single AA battery, the M570 will last an estimated 18 months before another cell is required.

The Wireless Trackball M570 will hit stores later this month with an MSRP of $59.99.

    False_Dmitry_IIEven if I wanted one... why WIRELESS!?!

    Why wouldn't you? Did you see how long it says that battery will last? I wantz it, and I haven't used trackballs since back in the day.

    Bravo to Logitech for revitalizing this market. I know quite a few people who love trackballs but they haven't had any good new ones for awhile.

    Still using my 3-button Trackman Marble (no annoying scrollwheel) and loving it. Glad to see Logitech is bringing back the trackball.

    Pretty overpriced piece of hardware.
