Logitech has introduced its Cordless Optical TrackMan, which it says is "the first" finger operated trackball that features both optical and cordless technology. The "space-age" design features 27 MHz cordless digital radio technology as well as new advanced navigation features in "a comfortable finger-operated, form-fitting, right-handed design. It features special drag-lock functions to move text and images with ease and introduces Cruise Control scrolling, which allows the user to scroll rapidly through web pages and documents by just depressing a button." It also includes thumb-operated forward and back buttons. It is due in July for $70.
