Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650
When you mention the name Logitech, what normally goes across your mind? Is it some sort of gaming peripheral? Well, gamers might think of that first, but for the majority of computer users out there, we would think more along the lines of a ‘normal’ computing peripheral as a standard working mouse as well as a keyboard that espouses all the virtues of ergonomics. This time around, with the imminent release of Windows 8, the Swiss company Logitech has decided to try something different which I believe, could very well be the first of its kind in the market – the Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650. Who would have thought that touchpads would come with a battery of its own, and needs to be recharged? Most of the time, the touchpads that we see are already part of our notebooks, instead of being a separate accessory. Ah well, I guess there is always a first time for everything.
For starters, Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 boasts of a generous, ultra-smooth glass touch-surface which will play nice with Windows 8 gestures (when the operating system finally arrives, of course), and it will also let you speed up navigation among windows while making sure that your little piggies (or rather, fingers) will be able to have the adequate amount of room to roam around.
With the Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650, you are able to perform the basic point, click and scroll functions at just about anywhere your fingers rest on the touch surface, at the same time being able to take advantage of Windows 8 gestures, and these will range from those such as edge gestures for app switching, app bar and charms bar activation, pinch-to-zoom and three-finger swipe to take you back to the Start Screen.
The touchpad itself comprises of a single large touch-area with a glass surface that will deliver a smooth gliding experience for greater gesture and cursor control. You are able to perform left- or right-click actions anywhere on the surface of the touchpad, where it will also come with an embedded sensor so that precise tracking is the order of the day at all times for fast and fluid navigation.
The Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 can recharge via USB, and comes with up to one month of battery life on a full charge. It is said to retail for $79.99 a pop in Europe and the US when available.
