Apple Magic Trackpad gets official nod

Bluetooth-packing gadget due to land imminently after US officials give it green light.

The much-hyped Apple Magic Trackpad has taken a step closer to reality today, with officials at the FCC giving the device the thumbs up.

Billed as a touch panel to be used with Macs, a basic image of the device, along with detailed descriptions, have been handed to the FCC. The file says the Magic Trackpad uses Bluetooth but not Wi-Fi and goes under the model number A1339, the same digits that appeared on a leaked image last month.

Because of Apple’s tight controls about when it sends filings to the FCC, chances are the Magic Trackpad could be with this us this week. Apple’s penchant for a Tuesday release means you should keep your peepers on the Apple Store throughout today for sure.
