Logitech’s New Trackpad Gives Windows 7 PCs Multi-Touch Control

Posted by at 10:36 am on September 13, 2011

Logitech knows some Windows users want the experience of the Magic Trackpad without having to get a Mac. Today they have released the Wireless Touchpad, which provides the same basic concept of a multi-touch trackpad on the desktop with a five-inch ‘buttonless’ surface that can sit anywhere. Special drivers give Windows the support it doesn’t normally have, including two-finger scrolling, three-finger page flip gestures, and four-finger app switches.

A decision to use RF wireless over Bluetooth gives it more longevity than its Apple-designed counterpart at about four months of regular use between charges of the two AA batteries it needs. The Unifying USB adapter lets it share one receiver with as many as five other Logitech devices, such as the K750 solar keyboard.

The Wireless Touchpad requires Windows 7 to work. The peripheral should be shipping before the end of the month and will cost less than its Magic Trackpad counterpart at $50.
