Apple Releases the Magic Trackpad


As predicted by leaked photos and FCC registrations, Apple has released the Magic Trackpad today.

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.

The new accessory supports a full set of gestures, including two-finger scrolling, pinching to zoom, rotating with your fingertips, three-finger swiping and four finger recognition. Meanwhile, tapping or double tapping on the surface initiates clicking.

The Magic Trackpad connects via wireless Bluetooth and is powered by two AA batteries. Apple has also launched a $29 Battery Charger to keep charged AAs ready for use. The Magic Trackpad sells for $69.00 and is shipping immediately.
