Check out their press release:
Introducing the 2013 Logitech Color Collection: Irresistible Eye Candy
Treat Yourself with New Logitech Mice in Bright, Eye-Catching Hues
NEWARK, Calif. — May 16, 2013 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) unveiled its fifth-annual design collection, releasing some of its most popular mice in intense bursts of bright candy colors and patterns. Designed to reflect the spark and enthusiasm that makes you who you are, the Logitech® Eye Candy Color Collection makes your mouse – and your desk – come alive with tasty hues and luscious patterns.
“The new Logitech Eye Candy Color Collection was inspired by today’s color and fashion trends that can be found worldwide,” said Irma Sandoval, senior brand manager at Logitech. “We hand-picked a team of designers who contributed their distinct perspectives to create a diverse collection with a broad spectrum of designs that help you celebrate your individual style.”
This sweet assortment adds a burst of eye-catching colors and patterns to some of Logitech’s most popular mice, including the micro-precise scrolling Logitech® Wireless Mouse M325. New to the collection this year is the Logitech® Zone Touch Mouse T400, a comfortable hybrid mouse that supports Windows® 8 navigation with both a touch zone and traditional mouse buttons.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Eye Candy Color Collection ranges in price from $29.99 to $49.99, depending on the product. The new designs are expected to be available in the U.S. beginning in May 2013. For more information, please visit www.logitech.com.
Since I own a Windows 8 computer, Logitech sent me the new Logitech Zone Touch Mouse (T400) to review. I already own 2 Logitech wireless mice from their past Color Collections (I own the M325 models), and I found the T400 to be just as easy to use. It hooks up to my computer with no trouble whatsoever, it glides smoothly on pretty much any surface, and it never gives me any trouble.
Here's what the T400 mouse looks like in comparison to the M325. The T400 is somewhat larger than the M325 but not quite as thick. It doesn't have a navigation wheel; instead, it has a touchstrip for scrolling up and down. The touchstrip not only allows vertical scrolling, it also allows for horizontal scrolling. When you're in an internet browser window, the side-to-side scrolling acts like the forward/backward button on your internet browswer. When you're in the Windows 8 Start Screen, the side-to-side scrolling lets you scroll through your apps tiles.
The T400 has a few more special features for Windows 8 users. The center touchstrip is also a button -- actually 2 buttons -- for toggling between screens. Click on the upper (larger) button, and you can toggle between the Windows 8 Start Screen and the Desktop Screen. Click on the lower (smaller) button, and you can toggle between the Desktop Screen and your active window. I love, love, love this feature because it means I don't have to take my hand off the mouse in order to navigate around my Windows 8 computer!
The best thing about this mouse: it looks adorable! Hey, a gal's gotta have some style, right? These Logitech mice are the perfect way to bling up my tech devices and stamp a bit of my own personality onto my stuff. Who wants to be a bland, black-or-grey cookie-cutter user anyway!
