Logitech Debuts Rugged Tablet For Corporate Use, With LTE On Board

By Radu Iorga

Logitech launched a tablet this week, which is something they don’t do very often. It’s a model that debuted via carrier DoCoMo and comes with LTE, as well as a rugged body. It’s the LT-WMT 10 series, with the Zeroshock branding.

The device is clearly rugged, as shown by its very well protected corners, against shock and impacts. The Zeroshock slate packs a 10.1 inch touchscreen, as well as a wireless LTE module that works on the NTT DoCoMo network. You can choose between Celeron and Core i5 CPUs and the OS is Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2016, or you can go with Windows 7 Professional for Embedded Systems.

The tablet is protected against vibration and shock, being tested by the US Department of Defense, so it’s military certified. It’s dust proof and drip proof, also being IP65 compliant. It’s got a micro SIM card slot and LTE support, plus it weighs up to 1.25 kilograms. It’s expected to hit the market in May, with the price being unknown.

We expect it to be big, perhaps even past $1000, since it’s a business device after all. I expect the usual extras to be available: barcode readers, QR code scanners, hot swap batteries and more.

Logitech Announces Rugged Combo 2 Case, Logitech Crayon Stylus for iPad

By Radu Iorga

Logitech took advantage of the new iPad unveiling to showcase a few products of its own, obviously focused on the iPad. They debuted a new stylus, dubbed Crayon and a Rugged Combo 2 Case, also designed for the Apple slate.

These accessories are designed with the iPad 2018 in mind and they’re meant for students who use the new tablet. The Logitech Crayon is similar to the Apple Pencil, but it’s cheaper, at $49, which is about half the price of the Apple Pencil, that sells to schools for $89. Logitech promises a similar experience though, thanks to the sub pixel precision, low latency and also there’s tilt support.

Compatibility with apps is expanded and the the accessory has improved grip, preventing accidental drops and rolling. Battery life is rated at 8 hours and we also have a pry resilient tip, plus a rubbed cap, that seems to hide the charging port. The Crayon connect via a special frequency and doesn’t rely on Bluetooth.

 

Then we’ve got the Rugged Combo 2 Case, a $99.99 accessory, which was made using input from educators. It’s supposed to survive the daily class activities, the “wear and tear” typical for schools. It’s got a protective screen cover, which also works as a keyboard and up top there’s a special slot for the Logitech Crayon. The good news is that the keyboard is detachable and the key caps aren’t easy to pry by mistake.

It’s also a silent keyboard and the case provides spill and drop resilience (up to 4 feet).

Logitech Craft review: A slick keyboard combo that takes on the Surface Dial

By Mark Walton

Enlarge / Kinda striking, don’t you think? (credit: Mark Walton)

Specs at a glance: Logitech Craft
Colour Grey, aluminium
Dimensions 32mm x 430mm x 149mm
Weight 960g
Connectivity Logitech Unifying 2.4GHz, Bluetooth Low Energy
Software Support Mac OS 10.11 and above and Windows 7 and above
Features USB Type-C charging, backlight, digital crown, 10m wireless range, Easy Switch
Price £179/$199

The Surface Dial, a hockey-puck-sized controller designed for use with Microsoft’s Surface Studio desktop computer, is the palette to the Surface’s pen. It clicks, double clicks and rotates, adding contextual menus and smooth navigation to apps such as Maps and Adobe Photoshop without the need to reach for a mouse. Unfortunately—despite some third-party alternatives—there’s nothing as slick as a Surface Dial available to creative types at home on a Mac.

That’s where the Logitech Craft comes in. Priced at a substantial £179, the Logitech Craft is a premium keyboard armed with a “crown,” that allows for the same clicks, double clicks and twists that make the Surface Dial so compelling, without the need to splash out on a Surface Desktop to go with it. While there are some odd limitations to the crown’s functionality, at least at launch, it’s a compelling companion to the keyboard and mouse.

It helps that the Craft is beautifully made. The main body is constructed from a sturdy matte grey plastic, while a heavy aluminium bar at the top adds weight, a comfortable tilt (although it’s sadly not adjustable), and the crown itself, which sits just above the escape key to the left of the keyboard. The Craft is a heavy thing with solid rubber feet that, once placed down on a desk, reassuringly stays put.

Last year I told You All About The Logitech K480 That I Bought…Yep, You Could Get One for Less Than I Paid

So for anyone who has read any of my posts about the K480, or why I choose it over the K380 then you are probably aware that I bought one last year from the very same place that has them dirt cheap again.

Now almost a year later, Newegg still has these keyboards in there refurbished items section. Don’t panic, mine was a “refurbished” model, meaning it was repackaged and brand new.

So if you really want a great keyboard for the incredibly low price of $16.99 then click this link!

If you are looking at a Bluetooth keyboard for a 10 inch or smaller tablet, or perhaps just to use with your PC or smartphone, then you might just be an idiot if you don’t go visit the site I linked above, (okay, this one works also).

The Best Bluetooth Keyboard

By Kimber Streams

bluetooth keyboard logitech k380

After testing 21 keyboards over the past year, we found that the Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard is the best for most people. It’s the first to meet all the requirements of a great multi-use Bluetooth keyboard—comfortable, compact, and versatile—for less than $50. The K380 is almost as great as our longstanding previous pick (which we still love—it’s our new upgrade pick), but it costs less than half as much.

I am happy with my K480, but if Logitech would like to send me one of these to test I certainly would be happy to try it out!
