New Logitech Desktop MX5000 Laser featuring Bluetooth
Posted: 16-Aug-2005 [Source: Logitech]

[Logitech's Cordless Desktop MX5000 Laser features a built-in LCD on the keyboard for sending and receiving information to and from the computer as well as Bluetooth 2.0 EDR wireless technology for turning any PC into a Bluetooth wireless hub.]

Logitech today announced the Logitech(R) Cordless Desktop(R) MX(TM) 5000 Laser, featuring a built-in LCD on the keyboard. The LCD screen can display e-mail and instant message (IM) notifications, favorite playlists and Internet radio stations. And by displaying certain information on the LCD, such as the status of the caps lock and F lock keys, volume levels and mute, the keyboard also alleviates visual clutter that would ordinarily be displayed on the computer monitor.

These capabilities mark a shift in the role of a cordless keyboard and mouse on a desktop. The Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 5000 Laser keyboard has the ability to send information to and receive information from the computer, making it a smart device. The product also can turn a PC into a Bluetooth(R) wireless hub, as it features the new Bluetooth 2.0 Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) wireless technology.

Wireless Connectivity With Bluetooth 2.0 EDR

The Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 5000 Laser can turn an ordinary PC into a Bluetooth wireless hub. With Logitech's Bluetooth mice and keyboards, people can conduct voice-over-IP (VoIP) calls with a Bluetooth headset, transfer pictures from a Bluetooth mobile phone, listen to music through Bluetooth headphones, and synchronize important data between mobile devices and the PC all without the hassle of connecting USB cords or any other kinds of wires at a wireless range of up to 60 feet. The keyboard features a one-touch synchronization button that lets users synchronize their PC calendar and address book with a mobile phone or PDA.

With three times higher data rates, Bluetooth 2.0 EDR enables a faster exchange of information between two devices; for example, people can more quickly transmit a picture from a mobile phone or camera with Bluetooth 2.0 EDR to the PC; or they can experience higher quality VoIP phone calls on their PC by using a headset with Bluetooth 2.0 EDR. The Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 5000 Laser is also backward compatible with other devices that use older implementations of Bluetooth.


The Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 5000 Laser will be available in October in the U.S. and Europe. The desktop has a suggested retail price of $149.99 in the U.S.
