- Mobility is about easily taking work or entertainment around the workplace or home, says Logitech
- Company releases four new products, saying mobility is at heart of its product development
WITH mobile technology becoming parts of personal and professional lives, even bridging the two, it has become the heart of product development at Swiss-based Logitech International, the company said in releasing a slew of new products.
“At Logitech, our very existence is centred on helping people connect to the digital experiences they care about,” said Moninder N. Jain, vice president of sales and marketing at Logitech Asia Pacific and Japan.
“And today that experience is very much about mobility – from the larger scale of being productive and connected anytime, anywhere, to a more down-to-earth scale, where mobility is about easily taking our work or entertainment around our workplace or home,” he added.
The company has launched a number of new products to help consumers “embrace the mobility lifestyle.”

Beyond convenience, users get protection with the durable, water-repellent two-sided casing, which helps protect their tablet from accidental bumps, scratches and spills.
