Logitech G18: New gaming keyboard under way?
It seems like the first picture of the G15 successor G18 surfaced on the web. The gaming keyboard is aligned to the recently introduced G13 controller.
The website Engadget published a picture showing a new Logitech keyboard right next to the G13 that has been introduced yesterday. Engadget says the device is the G18 gaming keyboard, but this name has not been confirmed yet.
On the picture you can see that the alleged G18 has twelve additional keys on the left side (the G15 has only six of them and the G11 has 18 additional keys) Furthermore it seems like the G18 will have a hinged color display - size is supposed to be three inches. If this display is intended for games or sideshow applications can only be guessed. Logitech will possibly introduce the new keyboard at the CES 2009 on January 8, 2009.
Yesterday Logitech introduced a futuristic gaming keyboard/controller called G13 that is supposed to be available in January for about 90 Euro. The G13 will offer additional keys and a mini stick for the left hand. Profiles for poplar games are said to be included, too.
