Spring is sprung, the grass is riz. A new season, a new set of products. Logitech is set to release three new mice this season, with one to cater for every taste: the Air Mouse for media centre enthusiasts, the G9 for gamers, and now the ultra-portable VX Nano.
The VX Nano is a travel mouse, so it's quite compact and lightweight. It features most of the buttons associated with modern mice including a scroll wheel for vertical and horizontal scrolling, Forward and Back Buttons and a dedicated Search button.
It's an ambidextrous mouse -- unlike the VX Revolution -- and fits comfortably in either hand. The scalloped edges feature the same rubberised material found on the VX and the desktop MX Revolution models.
One of the best features of the VX Nano is the size of the receiver - it's tiny. No longer do you need to rely on the costly combination of a Bluetooth mouse and receiver/dongle. Just plug this little receiver in, and it juts out a miniscule 8mm. For added convenience the mouse comes with a long desktop adaptor, which you plug into your PC and leave on your desk. We thought this may mean that the mouse doesn't have much of a range, but we needn't have worried -- we were able to use the mouse easily at up to five metres from the receiver. This could also make it handy for users who want to switch between their laptop and a media centre PC -- which is traditionally a long way from the couch.
