If the Logitech blog post about the new Logitech Wireless Desktop MK 700 is to be believed, the company has come up with a new type of key design. The Logitech Incurve keys apparently “cradle your fingers for greater comfort.” I’m all for keyboard innovation, but I think my standard white, full-size Apple keyboard also has concave keys.
Whatever. The new MX 700 is a wireless set and both the keyboard and mouse operate on a 2.4 GHz band. The top of the keyboard features a narrow LCD that displays the battery status, caps lock, FN, scroll lock, number lock, and mute. That battery status icon probably doesn't have to be there either as Logitech claims that the keyboard can run for three years on battery.
That's impressive, folks. That means you'll probably only have to install one set of batteries in the keyboard as something is bound to happen to the keyboard within three years. I mean, you could drop it, spill something on it, or just get plain bored with it and go Office Space on it.
The set retails for $99.99 and will be available later this month.
