An Honoree in the Best of Innovations at the 2008 CES, the Logitech diNovo Mini may be just what you have been waiting for if you have connected your computer to your TV. According to Logitech, over 60 percent of users that connect their personal computer to their television will use this setup to surf the net, watch videos and view photos.
The diNovo Mini features backlit keys, dual-purpose ClickPad, full-size keyboard, dedicated hotkeys, Bluetooth 2.0 and rechargeable Li-ion batteries. An orange backlight keeps the full-sized keyboard visible in low light conditions, while the ClickPad is illuminated in orange or green, depending on the mode of the ClickPad. The ClickPad can function as a mouse while in cursor mode or a directional pad while in media-remote mode. Fast forward, rewind, play and volume control are some of the dedicated hotkeys that have been provided with the diNovo Mini. Bluetooth 2.0 will allow sofa-surfers untethered interaction with their browser. The Li-ion batteries can last a month under normal use before needing to be recharged.
Sofa-surfers and content junkies that are looking for a way to control their TV connected computer from up to 30 feet away without a standard wireless keyboard and mouse should highly consider Logitech's diNovo Mini Keyboard. It is expected that diNovo Mini will be available for purchase in late January with a suggested price tag of $149.99.
