Windows users who find themselves envious of Mac users and their fancy Magic Trackpad will soon have their own variant of it. Logitech has announced the Wireless Touchpad which is basically a Magic Trackpad for Windows 7 PCs. It’s available to pre-order right now for $49.99 with free shipping. It’s also out of stock at the time of this writing.
The Logitech Wireless Trackpad has five inches of touching space and can support four-finger gestures. For example, using two fingers will scroll around a page, three fingers can be used to swipe through photos or jump to the top or bottom of a page and using four fingers moves through applications. It’s definitely something to get used to, but the learning curve shouldn’t be more difficult than learning how to operate a mouse with multiple buttons.
The Wireless Trackpad has a 2.4Ghz receiver that not only gives you 82ft of space to play with, but it can also provide a signal for five more wireless devices.
As I wrote earlier, the Wireless Trackpad only supports Windows 7 PCs. It also comes with two AA batteries.
