Do you miss your laptop’s trackpad when you’re stuck at your
desktop PC? Well Logitech may just have the solution.
The Logitech Wireless Touchpad is a multi-touch navigation
device which allows you to point, scroll and swipe your way through the web and
your favourite PC applications. It’s basically an Apple Magic Trackpad for PCs.
The Wireless Touchpad connects with your PC via a discreet
USB dongle and Logitech’s unifying technology lets you use a single dongle to
connect multiple devices, such as the M325 mouse we looked at last week.
A single touch anywhere on the Trackpad will let you
instantly control the cursor, but of more interest is the support for
multi-touch gestures (up to four fingers) and swipes to scroll quickly through
documents and werbsites, jump tabs and switch applications.
Logitech says its advance 2.4GHz wireless eliminates almost
all delays, dropouts and interference and it also promises a four-month battery
life with an LED indicator showing you when the juice is running low.
“The Logitech Wireless Touchpad is perfect for people who
want to surf the Web in a more fun and natural way,” said Rory Dooley,
Logitech’s senior vice president and general manager of the Control Devices
business unit. “It lets Web surfers flick through websites and effortlessly
scan long pages – making browsing easier than ever.”
The Logitech Wireless Touchpad is expected to be available
in Europe this month, for a suggested retail
price of £44.99.
