Logitech has unveiled the K120 alongside the MK235 wireless keyboard plus mouse combo in India as part of the centre’s Digital India initiative in order to hit the 40 crore Indians who speak in Hindi. Aimed at breaking the language barrier and helping the mass communicate in their language of choice, the Logitech wired K120 keyboard and the wireless MK235 are inscribed with Devanagari script beside English alphabets to grow consumption of local language content for the major part of the country.
Logitech has made both the options available for retail across offline sellers as well as Amazon India where it will start selling the keyboard duo from April 15th. The Logitech K120 will be made available for an asking price of Rs 695 with a 3-year warranty while the MK235 Wireless Keyboard + Mouse combo will come with a 1-year warranty for Rs 1,995.
Coming to details about the product, the Logitech K120 is a wired English + Hindi keyboard with Devanagari script inscribed on each key adjacent to the English alphabets. The keyboard is spill resistant, meaning it will be able to drain the liquid out completely when spilt over. The keys are well built and are durable to go up against 10 million strokes and there are adjustable legs allowing users to use the keyboard with an 8-degree tilt.
The Logitech MK235 is a wireless Mouse plus Keyboard with similar inscriptions for Hindi as well as English. Covering a range of 10 meters, the keyboard and mouse combo is compatible with Chrome OS, macOS, and Windows. The mouse operates on a single AA battery while the keyboard will be powered by a pair of AAA batteries.
