Logitech Touch Connect!: We tell you all the news from Logitech for this season.
Yesterday we attended a Logitech event called “Logitech Touch Connect!” in which those responsible for the firm showed us in first person all the Logitech news for this coming season. Among the most outstanding items we find, for example, the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310, which we talked about a few days ago, or the star product, the TV Cam HD camcorder that has HDMI connectivity, Wi-Fi and has integrated Skype to be able to make video conferences on television. without the need for any additional device or software.

Thanks to individual agreements and collaborations with Microsoft and Apple, Logitech has designed a series of peripherals specially designed for the new Windows 8 and iOS. Below we show you.

It has a touch-sensitive glass surface and allows you to click on the front of the touch zone to directly access the Windows 8 start screen and your favorite applications. On the other hand, a rubber coating makes navigation more comfortable and the coupling of the standard functions of a traditional mouse – such as vertical and horizontal scrolling – makes it easy for you to navigate for hours.
