"The Magic Trackpad has just shown up and Apple has already issued a driver update for it."
The update will also enable the inertial scrolling and three-finger dragging (if you want to move windows around) on MacBooks and MacBook Pros with the multi-touch trackpads. You will need to have 10.6.4 though to get it working properly, and if you are curious to see if it will work on your Macbook, Edible Apple has a list of all the compatible versions. You can find more info at Apple, and download the update as well [link].
And to answer a question some of you may have since it is Bluetooth, the folks at Gearlog tried to get the Trackpad to work with an iPhone and iPad. And the result is no, it doesn't work with either and is an OS X only product. One additional note, the buttons for the Trackpad are on the feet not on the surface, which is an interesting design feature, but it makes sense.
