Microsoft Details Keyboard for its Media Center PC


Microsoft announced Thusday that it will offer two new wireless keyboards designed for PCs that will run the hone entertainment version of Windows.

Microsoft Hardware has developed the first three-in-one control center for a Windows XP-based Media Center PC with remote, keyboard and mouse capabilities in one device.

"We create hardware for how and where people use their PC," said Tom Gibbons, general manager of the Hardware Group at Microsoft. "With this in mind, we designed two new devices to enhance the digital entertainment activities people are now enjoying, such as playing movies on their Media Center and editing digital photos."

Microsoft is aiming to ship more than 20 million Media Center PCs, which can record video and play digital music and images, by 2008, up from 1.4 million units in 2004.

Remore Keyboard

With smart features including a Media Center green button and backlit buttons, this device makes using a Media Center PC easier and more fun than ever.



Wireless Optical Desktop 5000

Wireless Optical Desktop 5000 includes a wireless keyboard, mouse and photo-editing software that makes it a snap to access, edit and share digital photos on a PC. The keyboard comes equipped with PhotoCenter, featuring one-touch access to most-used photo-editing functions and Zoom Slider to zoom into and out of photos. With the inclusion of new Digital Image Standard 2006 software, this integrated hardware and software solution delivers all the tools needed to customize photos while reducing the number of editing steps.

The new products introduced today will be widely available by September 2005 for the following estimated retail prices:
