Logitech Wireless Touchpad severs cable connection
I would say that when we talk about the 21st century as well as towards the end of the 1990s, many people were optimistic that we would soon move into a true blue wireless and paperless age, but judging by what I see at the moment, it seems as though that is not going to happen anytime soon. Why, you ask? Well, paper is still an indispensable part of life, and it is far easier to access something you’ve written on a note than to pull out your notebook or smartphone, turn it on, and boot up a particular note taking program.
As for going wireless, that is far more practical – although it has not really caught on as I originally thought it would. Logitech intends to push the wireless envelope with their latest product, the $49.99 Logitech Wireless Touchpad. Yup, the introduction of touchpads on notebooks, netbooks and even an optical trackpad on a smartphone did open up a whole new way of interacting with the digital world. Let’s see what Logitech has in store for us with their Logitech Wireless Touchpad after the jump.
This device was specially designed to work with the Windows 7 operating system, where it will boast multi-touch navigation and gesture-based controls, making it a whole lot easier to point, scroll and swipe your way to an intended file or shortcut, where even surfing the Internet now is so much easier to do. Since this device comes with a large touch surface, it ought to deliver a fair amount of room for your fingertips to stretch in they very own way without getting cramped, especially after spending the whole day in front of the computer.
Setting it up is a snap – just plug the diminutive Logitech Unifying receiver into a USB port, place the touchpad at an area where you’re comfortable with, and you’re good to go. The included receiver is able to simultaneously supports up to five more compatible devices.
