Logitech MX Master wireless mouse officially announced

Logitech recently unveiled the MX Master, the third mouse in the company's MX series. The main highlights are a Darkfield laser sensor and a battery life of up to 40 days.

Logitech recently unveiled the MX Master, a new wireless mouse primarily aimed at office users. The Logitech MX Master supports resolutions ranging from 400 to 1600 dpi, depending on your need for accuracy.

One of the most interesting features of the new Logitech MX Master is the inclusion of a secondary "thumb wheel". While the primary scroll wheel can be used to scroll through documents and webpages, the thumb wheel allows the user to quickly switch between open apps. There are five buttons available, plus a sixth "gesture" button, all programmable using Logitech software that works with both OS X and Windows.

Like the previous two mouses in the Logitech MX line-up, the MX Master comes with a Darkfield Laser sensor, one that ensures that the mouse is still accurate even when used on reflective surfaces such as glass. In addition to the proprietary 2.4GHz wireless connection - supported via a special "Unifying" receiver included in the package - the Logitech MX Master also comes with support for Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy.

Logitech says that the rechargeable 500 mAh battery integrated in the Master MX should keep working for about 40 days on a single charge with regular usage (6 hours of office use per day). In just four minutes of charge time, the MX Master should get enough juice to keep going for a whole day.

If you're interested in purchasing the Master MX mouse, you can head over to the website, where the mouse will be available starting this April at a price of $99.99. At the moment, it is unknown when the mouse will launch with third party retailers.
