In an attempt to complement the ultra slim MacBook and Ultrabook computers, Logitech International (LOGI - Analyst Report), a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative peripherals for the digital world, recently introduced the first ultra-portable, ultra-thin touch mouse. The mouse is expected to be available in the American and European markets from Sep 2013 and is priced at $69.99.

The Logitech Ultrathin Touch Mouse has a glossy touch surface with an invisible coating that makes navigation much easier. The mouse is also equipped with Logitech Easy-Switch Technology, which when used with Bluetooth, can be used to connect wirelessly to laptop, desktop and tablet devices at the same time. Moreover, the mouse has an excellent capacity to retain power, and can be typically used for an hour for every minute of recharging.

With its sleek, feather-light design, the Logitech Ultrathin Touch Mouse matches the evolving needs of consumers for sleeker, portable and fashionable electronic touch-navigation devices.

Earlier this month, Logitech launched a wireless All-in-One keyboard with a built-in touchpad. The keyboard – TK820 – is an innovative brainchild of Logitech, which lets the user type, touch and swipe with a single device. The ultra-slim wireless keyboard is the first of its kind and occupies comparatively lesser space on the user’s desktop as the built-in touchpad is conspicuously smaller than a built-in laptop touchpad.

Rapid adoption of new mobile platforms, such as tablets and smartphones in both mature and emerging markets, is stimulating the growing demand for Logitech’s peripherals and accessories. In order to capitalize on this opportunity, the company is continuously launching an array of innovative products.

Currently, Logitech carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Better-placed stocks in the same sector that are worth considering include Imaging, Inc. (EFII - Snapshot Report), Analogic Corporation (ALOG - Snapshot Report) and Alps Electric Co. Ltd. (APELY). While Imaging and Alps Electic both carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), Imaging Inc. carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
