Logitech TouchMouse M600 mimics Apple's

Magic Mouse clone offers PC users touchscreen control

Logitech has created a button-less mouse for use with Windows PCs that offers similar touchscreen controls as the Mighty Mouse for Apple Macs. As with a multi-touch trackpad on a laptop, using the Logitech TouchMouse M600 users can use glide, scroll and swipe gestures in order to navigate their computer. 

Logitech says a benefit of the touchscreen control approach is that it allows for free-flowing movements across the screen. With a scrollwheel mouse or one that has only buttons, a series of repetitive finger-flicking or arm movements are required in order to cover large areas of the screen or to move through several pages. 

The £59.99 TouchMouse M600 offers optical tracking, allowing for precision placement, and can be used on almost any surface with no need for a mousemat. It will go onsale in Dixons stores in the UK, with a further rollout this summer.
