Logitech announced the Rechargeable Trackpad, which is a mouse alternative that provides a full set of multi-touch gestures like pinch, swipe, or flick, for Mac OS computers. With a low-profile design and smooth glass surface, the trackpad replicates a touch-screen experience. And, because the touch area is larger than the typical notebook’s touchpad, it’s easier to take advantage of the full range of Mac OS multi-touch gestures, so you can naturally control and access your information. Plus, the trackpad has been engineered with embedded precision sensors and resistance to fingerprints and scratches.
While functionally the same as Apple’s Magic Trackpad, Logitech’s version is rechargeable, whereas Apple’s trackpad uses two AA batteries. The Logitech trackpad is rechargeable through a USB cable and can be used while being recharged. Fully charged, you’ll have one month of power, which you can manage through its convenient On/Off switch. With Bluetooth wireless connectivity, the trackpad also provides up to 30 feet of wireless range.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Rechargeable Trackpad will be available in the U.S. and Europe in January 2013, for $69.99.
