Brings your Creativity to Light
SINGAPORE, 15 January 2013 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced the expansion of its keyboard lineup for Apple devices with the Logitech® Bluetooth® Easy-Switch Keyboard for Mac®, iPad® and iPhone®. Similar to the Logitech® Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 and Logitech® Bluetooth® Illuminated Keyboard K810 introduced last year, this illuminated keyboard features Logitech easy-switch with Bluetooth technology so you can easily switch from typing an e-mail on your Mac to taking notes on your iPad to replying to a text on your iPhone by simply pressing a button.
The Logitech Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboard can pair with up to three devices simultaneously, and its familiar Mac layout features the keys you’d expect, including Command, Brightness and Mission Control™. With its real-aluminum design, it has a sleek look that matches the Apple style, making it look right at home next to your Mac, iPad or iPhone.
“Recognizing the power and attractiveness of Apple’s distinctive design aesthetic, we created the Logitech Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboard to complement – both visually and practically – Apple fans’ lifestyles,‖ said Mike Culver, vice president of brand development for consumer computing platforms at Logitech. ―Over the course of each day, people switch from using their Mac to their iPad or iPhone, and this new keyboard keeps up the pace by making these transitions smooth and easy, all while looking great in the process.”
In addition to its attractive design, this keyboard was built to maximize usability and power. The bright illumination of its backlit key characters makes them easy to read in low light conditions or at night, so you can type in any environment. Virtually anticipating your needs, the keyboard turns on its illumination when your hands approach, and it will automatically dim or brighten based on the amount of light in the room.
To match your busy lifestyle, the easy-to-use USB recharge cable lets you use your keyboard while it’s recharging. Plus, the battery indicator light lets you know when you need to recharge, so there are no surprises.
