Apple has long set the bar when it comes to computer product design.  So it’s no huge surprise to see other companies follow suit.  What are we getting at? Today, Logitech announced a mouse very similar to Apple’s Magic Mouse, the Logitech Touch Mouse M600.

Effectively it’s the same mouse, at least as far as we can tell and at the same cost, $69.99.  That means the face of the mouse is touch sensitve allowing you to swip, scroll and sweep as if you’re using a touchpad or smartphone.  However, Logitech’s included software will let you assign a left or right handed profile.  They’re also included a mini-unifying receiver that fits inside the mouse during travel and means RF instead of Bluetooth, though they’re effectively the same.  While the Logitech M600 can use two AA batteries for 6 months of use, you can opt to use one.  It will cut your play time in half, but on the upside you’ll have a lighter, more portable mouse.

The Logitech Touch Mouse M600 is available for preorder and will ship any day now.
