Logitech has applied a clear plastic sticker over the face of the diNovo to preserve its mirror-like finish during shipment. Just peel back the covering from a corner to remove it completely. So what stands out immediately (besides the high-gloss finish which proved difficult to photograph)? The wrist-rest is made out of brushed aluminum which gives a nice contrast to the black plexi surface on the keyboard. The charging station/display stand works great... I think my biggest issue here will be remembering to put the keyboard on the charger when I am done using the computer.



An unexpected bright orange finish is present on the bottom of the Edge. Two retractable feet help to elevate the upper portion of the keyboard, should you prefer to type on an incline. Rubber feet at the bottom help to hold the unit firm in place on your desk. A "connect" button is located at the top to help link the keyboard to the Bluetooth dongle (mine synch'ed up automatically). At the bottom we can see the two gold-plated power connectors, which line up perfectly with those on the charging dock. The diNovo Edge uses Li-ion batteries instead of the more standard NiMH batteries. Li-ion batteries do not lose their charge when not in use and are less bulky than NiHM. Logitech claims that a two-hour charge will provide enough power for approximately two months of normal use. The batteries will last the life of the keyboard and should not need replacing.
