Who would have thought that a touchpad would eventually come with batteries one day? Logitech did, which is why they have just announced the Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 that was specially designed right out of the box to play nice with the Windows 8 touch interface. Upon unboxing, you will find a large, ultra-smooth glass touch-surface which supports Windows 8 gestures, and it ought to do its part to make sure that navigation among windows is performed in a jiffy, while making sure that there is adequate space for your fingers to roam around.

It does not matter just which part of the Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 that your fingers rest on, you are still able to perform the basic point, click and scroll functions, while making sure that Windows 8 gestures are not shifted out of the picture, including 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. You can also opt to left- or right-click anywhere on the surface of the touchpad, while an embedded sensor ensures that precise tracking is the order of the day, delivering fast and fluid navigation.

The Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 will retail for $79.99 a pop later this month in the US as well as Europe. [Press Release]
