Logitech Brings the TouchPad to Windows

Published Wednesday, September 14, 2011 12:02 PM


The trackpad has been a thing of debate for a while now,  are touch based controls, like touchscreens and touchpads, the future of input control or is it simply a fad. If you feel touch controls are the wave of the future and are on a Windows machine you may be jealous of the Magic Trackpad made by Apple. Well fear not Logitech has you covered with a brand new 5" touchpad that's built for Windows 7 OS.

The touchpad measures 5" across making it almost the same size as the Apple Magic Trackpad. With it's software and multi-touch capability the Logitech Wireless Touchpad brings some of the same gestures to Windows that you have in the Mac OS. The trackpad can recognize up to 4 fingers at once allowing you to 1, 2, 3, and 4 finger gestures to do things like switch applications, scroll, flip through photos, page-up and down, and so much more. The device has a 4 month battery life which means you won't have to worry about changing batteries very often. The device is of course wireless using logitech's low profile unifying receiver running at 2.4GHz.

So for those Windows users out there that were secretly jealous of the Magic Trackpad this is probably as close as you can get for now. The device retails for around $45 and is only available for pre-order at the time of this article.
