Logitech diNovo Mini
by Mark R
As a fan of Logitech products, I find that the company responds well to the needs of the consumer. For example, there is a trend in consumers to operate their computers from their television sets.
Of course, that still means that the consumer must provide some interface such as a space-wasting keyboard or mouse. However, the Logitech diNovo Mini is a handheld device that can provide both.
As you can see, it has a full QWERTY keyboard built right in. Also included are hotkeys for media players for web browsers, even Page Up and Down buttons. Especially handy is the button that launches the Windows Media Center, so all your favorite programs are available at a button-touch away.
As for mouse controls, there is a dual-purpose ClickPad that can point, scroll, and click. This ClickPad comes in two modes. In the orange backlit mode, it is a touch-pad. In green backlit mode, it is a media remote.
The diNovo Mini has wireless control from up to 30 feet, and uses Bluetooth technology. I think all of my regular readers know that I always enjoy reporting on products that I believe could change the way we do things, and this diNovo Mini could be one of them.
The diNovo Mini is planned to be available later this month for a price of $149.99.
