The G13 features 25 programmable backlit keys and on-board memory, complemented by a built-in LCD display. The display can show live game states, system info and messages from other players.

The G13 is designed to contour to the shape of your hand and fingers, with concave home-row keys borrowed from Logitech’s Comfort Wave keyboard. Using software supplied with the device, you can program three game modes and save custom button profiles. There’s also a programmable analog stick.

Pre-configured settings include World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, among others.

Logitech’s Web site had not been updated with information about the G13 as Macworld posted this article.
