Logitech’s Nano Receiver Not Much Bigger Than a Pimple

We’re big fans of Logitech’s VX, their mouse designed for mobile computing. Its wireless USB receiver even stows inside of the mouse body for ease of transport (and so you don’t lose it in the linty recesses of your laptop bag). Even though the current receiver is small (smaller than a typical USB Flash drive), it’s still a significant protrusion on the side of your computer, and that leaves it venerable to getting knocked off, and maybe borking a USB port in the process.

Enter the new VX Nano, billed has having the world’s smallest USB receiver. Besides the USB A plug housing, there’s just enough material extending beyond the port to grab hold of. Really impressively tiny.

The VX Nano goes on sale at the end of next month. It will retail for US$70.
