Apple release the Magic Trackpad

Apple Magic Trackpad finger - Ongoing Issue PictureWe showed some pictures back in June about Apple getting ready to release a Multitouch Magic Trackpad and then mid this month that the FCC had approved a Bluetooth device, well now it’s here, the Magic Trackpad.

The new Magic Trackpad is the first Multi-Touch trackpad designed to work with your Mac desktop computer. It uses the same Multi-Touch technology you love on the MacBook Pro. And it supports a full set of gestures, giving you a whole new way to control and interact with what’s on your screen. Swiping through pages online feels just like flipping through pages in a book or magazine. And inertial scrolling makes moving up and down a page more natural than ever. Magic Trackpad connects to your Mac via Bluetooth wireless technology. Use it in place of a mouse or in conjunction with one.

The Magic Trackpad is to replace the traditional mouse and we can’t wait to get our hands on it to find out what it’s like.

In a nutshell it is a Multi-Touch device made from Apple’s wear-resistant glass and is 80 per cent larger than a MacBook Pro trackpad.  It is also the same height and angle as an Apple Keyboard so will look fantastic next to each other.  Connection is via Bluetooth, so nice and easy.  It costs £59.
