Need a touchpad at home or a larger touchpad while on-the-go? Logitech might have what you need, with its just-announced TK820. This is definitely one of the most interesting-looking keyboards out there, as it features a massive touchpad that takes up at least 25% of the entire unit – it’s far larger than what you’ll see on most laptops. With it, you can forego a mouse and take advantage of gestures under Windows 8.
To help save space, the TK820 is wireless, taking advantage of Logitech’s super-small “Unifying” receiver. There’s no word on battery-life, but if it’s anything like Logitech’s other office wireless keyboards, it’s bound to last more than a year with regular use.
Shoving a large touchpad in here wasn’t the only goal Logitech had. The “PerfectStroke” system evenly distributes key pressure across the board, while “Incurve” results in curved keys that aim to deliver more comfortable typing.
The TK820 is set to launch later this month in the US, Canada and Europe, and will retail for $100 (ahem, $99.99).
