Unlike the K760, the Easy-Switch Keyboard offers backlit keys to make it easier to find the right key in dim or dark rooms; Logitech says a sensor on the keyboard automatically enables this backlighting whenever your hands are near the keyboard and automatically adjusts the backlight brightness based on the ambient light level. Instead of being solar powered, the Easy-Switch runs off a rechargeable battery that charges via a USB cable.
Unlike Apple’s trackpad, the Rechargeable Trackpad has a built-in rechargeable battery that charges using a USB cable. Logitech says the Rechargeable Trackpad can be used for one month from a full charge, and a convenient On/Off switch lets you conserve battery power when you’re not using the trackpad.
Each accessory can be used while charging, so you don’t have to interrupt your work if the battery runs out.
Logitech says both accessories will be available in January 2013.
