Following Apple’s Magic Trackpad example, Logitech has unveiled Logitech Wireless Touchpad, a trackpad for your desktop. The Touchpad offers multi-touch navigation and intuitive gesture based controls. Just put the wireless touchpad anywhere on your desk or tabletop insert the plug-and-forget Logitech Unifying receiver into your computer and it just works.

“The Logitech Wireless Touchpad is perfect for people who want to surf the Web in a more fun and natural way,” said Rory Dooley, Logitech’s senior vice president and general manager of the Control Devices business unit. “It lets Web surfers flick through websites and effortlessly scan long pages – making browsing easier than ever.”

The Logitech Wireless Touchpad’s multi-touch navigation offers up to four-finger gestures and swipes to scroll pages, jump tabs and switch applications. You can easily stay powered up – with up to four months of battery life and an LED indicator light that tells you when the touchpad is on and your batteries are running low.

The Logitech Wireless Touchpad is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe this month, for a suggested retail price of $49.99.
