Apple Magic Trackpad Details Announced

Details of the Apple Magic Trackpad have now been uploaded to the Apple site.

The Magic Trackpad is a multi-touch enabled trackpad that lets you work with your Mac desktop computer. It uses the same multi-touch found on the MacBook Pro and supports gestures that make it easier to work with a computer.

Gestures allow you to swipe through pages of a book whilst online. Inertial scrolling is also included that allows you to more easily scoll up and down a page.

The Magic Trackpad is Bluetooth and connects up to a Mac via that technology. It can be used with or without a mouse depending on what your needs are.

The Magic Trackpad is larger than the one found on a MacBook Pro and is also covered in a wear-resistant glass surface.

Magic Trackpad is just like the trackpad on the MacBook Pro ” but bigger. It’s made with the same advanced touch-friendly and wear-resistant glass surface. But with nearly 80 percent more area, it’s the largest Multi-Touch trackpad made by Apple. So there’s even more room for you to scroll, swipe, pinch, and rotate to your fingers’ content. And since the entire surface is a button that clicks, you can use it in place of a mouse.

The trackpad has been designed to look the same as the Apple Wireless Keyboard when looked at from a side profile. Both sit at the same angle and height. Having both the same size allows easier integration and movement between the two input methods.

Full details available over at Apple.

Price wise, it will set you back $69 with free shipping.
