The new keyboard is designed to make Smart TV navigation easier.
Logitech has announced the latest addition to its keyboard lineup. The K600 TV Keyboard features a touchpad and D-pad to go along with standard keys, offering support for text entry and precise menu and cursor control for select smart TV models.
"Finding web content and navigating menus on your Smart TV can be a chore," said Art O'Gnimh, global head of keyboards at Logitech. "The Logitech K600 TV Keyboard provides familiar text typing and cursor control, making it easier than ever to interact with and unlock the full potential of your Smart TV."
The K600 TV Keyboard is geared toward living room use with a smart TV. The unit's curved shape, slim size, and light weight make it easy to rest on a user's lap, store face down on any table, or hold for simple two-hand navigation. Thanks to its standard keys, touchpad, and d-pad, the device offers easy navigation and control for web browsers and media apps on supported smart TVs, making it much simpler to enter in text for searches or select content in streaming services. In addition, the keyboard also features dedicated media and navigation keys for remote control functions like volume. The device supports a wireless range of 15-meters and is rated for 12-months of battery life.
Full smart TV controls are supported for select models from Samsung, LG, Sony BRAVIA, and Philips, as well as select Toshiba and Insignia Fire TVs.

The K600 TV Keyboard is set to launch in October for a suggested retail price of $79.99.
