Logitech's Harmony Touch - the Next Evolution in Universal Remote?


It's an era of instant control for end users, where the ultimate entertainment experience needs to be at their fingertips. They revel in convenience and don't want to be saddled with having to remember channel numbers or scroll through lengthy on-screen guides.

Logitech (News - Alert) is prepared to indulge and pamper the user with the next generation of its award-winning line of Harmony remotes, the Logitech Harmony Touch, which gives users unprecedented control of the home-entertainment system, noted company officials.

With an intuitive color touchscreen, Logitech Harmony Touch claims to let users add, remove and re-order up to 50 favorite channel icons from their respective cable or satellite provider right on its vibrant 2.4-inch color touchscreen with just a swipe, a scroll and a tap.

This remote is ergonomically sculpted and its streamlined button layout presents a sleek, minimalist design enhances the décor of the living room. As its keys are backlit, users can easily navigate the channel icons even in the dark.

By allowing users to customize their channel icons and personalize their viewing experience, they can easily locate all their TV movies, games and music channels with just a single touch. All that is required is an initial online setup that is very simple.

“The Logitech Harmony Touch represents the next evolution for the universal remote,” said Joerg Tewes, vice president, digital home business group at Logitech.

The Logitech Harmony Touch is compatible with more than 225,000 home-entertainment devices and more than 5,000 brands, and it can control as many as 15 devices. A charging station keeps the remote always powered so that it can be used at any time without fear of discharge.

Slated for release in the U.S. and Europe beginning in October 2012, the Logitech Harmony Touch will be available at a suggested retail price of $249.99.

Logitech announced the expansion of its keyboard lineup with the Logitech bluetooth Keyboard K810.

Compatible with Windows, iOS and Android (News - Alert) devices and with a layout designed for Windows 8, this rechargeable keyboard uses Bluetooth connectivity to pair with up to three devices simultaneously. Your keyboard can be connected to your PC, tablet and smartphone and you can easily switch among them with the push of a button.
