Logitech Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboard for Mac

The Logitech Easy-Switch Keyboard
Earlier today Logitech unveiled two new peripherals for Apple devices: the Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboard and Rechargeable wireless Trackpad.
The Easy-Switch Keyboard has a unique feature (which can be guessed from its name) it can quickly switch between connected devices. For example you can write a document on your iMac answer an e-mail on your iPhone, and tweet from your iPad all with the same keyboard when the only thing you need to do is press one key. The Easy-Switch Keyboard can be connected to all your apple devices using Bluetooth and has three memory bottoms which allows you to switch between devices with ease.
Another cool feature of the Easy-Switch Keyboard is keyboard illumination so you can work even when there is no light in the room or when you don’t want to disrupt those around you. If the light is too bright or too dim simply use F5/F6 to adjust it (just like you would normally do on your MacBook. The Easy-Switch Keyboard even has a proximity sensor so it knows if your hands are close to it or not to turn the backlighting on or off and save  power.

According to Logitech the Easy-Switch Keyboard’s built in battery should last for about 10 days of usage and you can charge it via USB which usually takes about 3 hours or so. As for the Logitech Rechargeable Trackpad for Mac, this unit is very similar to Apple’s own Magic Trackpad, it has a multitouch surface which support all the usual gestures as well as a smooth glass surface and a mechanical click which is more or less identical to the Apple version.

As for prices – the Easy-Switch Keyboard is already available for preorder for about $100 while the Logitech Rechargeable Trackpad for Mac is already available for purchase for about $70.
