The Magic Mouse's Evil Twin Still Yearns For Your Gentle Touch

By Andrew Liszewski on at

We didn't exactly walk away impressed with Logitech's unorthodox Cube mouse, but the company's just-announced M600 features a more traditional form factor, bearing a striking resemblance to Apple's Magic Mouse as it also sheds buttons for a touch-friendly surface.

Instead of wheels or a bevy of assignable buttons, fingertip gestures are you used to scroll, flip through photos, and navigate the web. And with Logitech's optional Flow Scroll software, using the mouse on a PC is promised to feel exactly like using the touch screen on your smartphone, with fluid scrolling for longer documents. And it's even reprogrammable for left or right-handed users.

Available sometime in February for around £60, the M600 also includes a tiny unifying USB receiver, which basically means you can connect up to six different wireless Logitech devices to your computer, while only needing a single free USB port. And because one of the biggest complaints about wireless mice is their weight, the M600 will happily operate on just a single AA battery for three months of use, or the standard two AAs if you want to double its battery life to six months.
