Switzerland-based Logitech, which designs, manufactures, and markets personal interface products, has announced that its wireless hub for the PC supports the latest Bluetooth(R) phones from Sony Ericsson and Nokia, new PDAs from Toshiba, Hewlett-Packard (HP), and palmOne, and hands-free headsets from Sony Ericsson, Motorola, and Nokia.
Logitech said that customers who purchase any of these new mobile communications products can automatically take full advantage of its recently introduced wireless hub—which bridges their PC and Bluetooth mobile devices—and the Logitech Mobile Bluetooth Headset. Bluetooth provides wireless technology that enables communication between mobile computers, mobile phones, and other portable hand-held devices, as well as connectivity to the Internet.
Logitech is now offering the wireless hub as part of a Bluetooth product lineup that includes the Logitech(R) MXTM 900 Bluetooth(R) Mouse as well as two new keyboard-and-mouse combination products -- the diNovo(TM) Media Desktop(TM), and the Cordless Desktop(R) MXTM for Bluetooth(R).
With a Logitech wireless hub, the company says the PC becomes a control center for Bluetooth mobile devices, enabling synchronization between the PC and the calendars and address books that reside on a mobile phone or PDA. The Logitech wireless hub also integrates PC and mobile phone technologies to provide greater flexibility for voice and messaging communications, including the ability to use the PC to receive and respond to text messages sent to a Bluetooth mobile phone, the company said.
