It's the end of the workday, and my hands hurt from typing. I suspect I'm not alone on this one--thus the proliferation of ergonomic keybords and mice. On Tuesday, Logitech announced its latest contribution to the genre, the Cordless Desktop Wave Pro.
Like its predecessor, the Cordless Desktop Wave Pro features both a varied key height to accommodate the different lengths of your fingers and a gently curved layout designed to keep your wrists and arms at a more natural angle. A cushioned palm rest gives your hands a comfortable landing spot between paragraphs.
The desktop set also includes the MX1100 laser mouse, which is contoured to fit more comfortably in your hand (read my colleague Rich Brown's Logitech MX1100 review). The mouse also incorporates Logitech's handy MicroGear Precision scroll wheel, which has two modes: hyper-fast, to scroll quickly through pages with a single flick of your finger, and the click-to-click scrolling mode common on all computer mice.
Both devices use a 2.4GHz wireless connection, and the keyboard includes built-in 128-bit AES keyboard encryption. The set requires three AA batteries (two for the keyboard, one for the mouse).
The Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave Pro will start shipping in September for $129--not bad for an entry-level ergonomic set, but more than the current going rate of the similar Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000.
