Logitech tracks Apple with the Wireless Touchpad

Logitech has taken inspiration from Cupertino for its latest peripheral - although there's no mention of the Wireless Touchpad being magical.

But it is very Apple Magic Trackpad like, bringing a multitouch setup to your PC and doing away with your need for a mouse.

You can scroll around with one finger, scroll up or down with two or swipe back and forward with three - it's like having a tablet control setup on your desktop.

As you probably guessed from the name, it's a wireless setup - the Touchpad connects to your PC via a 2.4GHz signal to a USB receiver, which is capable of connecting up to five devices.

"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. "It lets Web surfers flick through websites and effortlessly scan long pages - making browsing easier than ever."

Priced at £44.99, it should hit shops this month.
