Logitech have announced a new remote control the Logitech Harmony Touch. The remote has a 2.4” touch screen and has customisable channel icons, so you can put channel logos on the screen making it much more friendly for the family. You can program the device via myharmony.com and can work with Skype via a Logitech TV Cam. Also included is a charging station.
Sadly no QWERTY keyboard option but it does look a very nice remote. At £149 it not cheap but it certainly is a powerful remote.
Good news Harmony fans! Today we’re proud to introduce the newest in our Harmony® remote lineup, the Logitech Harmony® Touch.
Touch-screens have changed the way we interact with technology, and today’s home entertainment calls for interaction that goes beyond the standard remote control. In response, we’ve rethought the remote, keeping what you love while elevating the touch experience and personalization.
The Logitech Harmony Touch combines luxury and convenience, giving you ultimate control over your entire home-entertainment system. It features a simple, streamlined design and a touch-screen that lets you smoothly swipe and tap your way to your favorite entertainment options, including one-touch activities such as “Watch TV” and “Listen to Music.” Channel icons and numbers for your favorite networks are automatically provided based on your location and TV service provider, and you can add, remove and organize your favorites right on the remote. You can also edit your activity settings, such as inputs and delays, as well as the order of your activities and commands on the remote screen.
We’ve also updated MyHarmony.com, so current Harmony remote owners can use their existing MyHarmony.com account, along with the device and activity settings from their current Harmony remote when they set up their new Harmony Touch.
Beyond its convenience and intuitive navigation, this remote looks as good as it feels with a streamlined button layout and sculpted shape. It’s rechargeable so you don’t have to worry about running low on power and the charging station keeps the remote always within arm’s reach.
The Logitech Harmony Touch is compatible with 225,000 devices and 5,000 different brands, and it can control up to 15 different devices.
