Logitech’s Stylish Ultrathin Touch Mouse Targets Ultrabooks and MacBooks

Mere days after we posted our look at Logitech’s Zone Touch Mouse T400, the company has followed-up with an announcement of another model based on a similar touch design – this time targeting a different audience and price-point.
While the T400 is bright and “fun”, Logitech’s ‘Ultrathin Touch’ is stylish, and maybe even a little bit sexy. It features sleek curves and brushed aluminium, designed to perfectly complement your Ultrabook or MacBook – both of which also tend to look pretty stylish on their own.
Style isn’t the only thing going for the T630 (PC) or T631 (Mac), however. Its size is about as modest as it could get; the goal was clearly to allow anyone to toss it in virtually any available pocket – even a jean’s pocket. The mouse also has a good level of interoperability going for it: It can be used on your PC, notebook and tablet – all configured at the same time, and chosen with a small switch underneath.
Like the company’s G602 gaming mouse, which we talked about yesterday, battery-life was a huge consideration with the Ultrathin Touch. The company touts that just a single minute of charging (plugged into your PC) will give it another hour’s worth of life. There’s no word on how long the mouse lasts on a full charge, though.
With its touch surface, the mouse is perfect for use with the Windows 8 modern interface, or Mac OS X’s multi-touch navigation. If all of this sounds good to you, then you’ll be able to pick one up in the US next month and Europe in November, for a suggested price of $69.99 USD.
Update: Logitech pinged us to let us know that the Ultrathin Touch has a rated battery-life of 10 days at full charge, based on average usage patterns. Not too bad – especially given the fact that it can be fully charged in only a couple of hours.
