Microsoft Announces New Line of mouse-and-keyboard Sets


Microsoft today announced two new desktop sets - the Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 and Wireless Media Desktop 1000 - with stylish designs and high-end productivity features at affordable prices.

Wireless Laser Desktop 6000

The Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 includes the Wireless Laser Mouse 6000, a full-size mouse with a right-handed ergonomic design that features a snap-in transceiver so notebook users can easily take the mouse with them when they are on the road. The Windows Aero-inspired keyboard has a smoked translucent border and sleek, compact shape. Featuring Microsoft's Comfort Curve layout, this keyboard encourages a more natural hand position with a slight six-degree curve. The keyboard?s quiet touch keys also add to its appeal. In addition, this keyboard features:



- 2.4GHz wireless technology gives consumers a confident wireless connection and a range of up to 30 feet, even in crowded wireless environments.

- One-touch access to Windows Flip 3D allows users to flip through open windows in a stack and quickly switch among applications.

- My Favorites Keys deliver one-touch access to users? most-used Web sites, files and folders.

- Media Center controls allow users to access popular media activities such as play, pause and volume with one touch.

- Battery life indicator shows two colors: green when the batteries have sufficient power and red when the batteries are running low.

The Wireless Keyboard 6000 also launches today as a stand-alone item, while the Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 hit retail shelves in March 2008.

Wireless Media Desktop 1000

The Wireless Media Desktop 1000 is suitable for the media enthusiast, providing quick, one-touch access to photos, Windows Media Player and My Favorites Keys. The ultra-thin keyboard gives users full use of Windows Vista with quick access to Windows Flip 3D2 and the Windows Start Button. The desktop set also includes an optical mouse with a comfortable ambidextrous design.



The Wireless Laser Desktop 6000, Wireless Laser Keyboard 6000 and Wireless Media Desktop 1000 will be available for estimated retail prices of $99.95 (U.S.), $59.95 (U.S.) and $49.95 (U.S.), respectively. These products are available now for presale on Amazon.com and will ship later this month when they are widely released. The Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 is currently available for the estimated retail price of $49.95.3 All products will be backed by a worldwide three-year limited hardware warranty from Microsoft.

First BlueTrack Mouse

Microsoft also unveiled an advanced tracking technology, Microsoft BlueTrack Technology, which allows consumers to take their mice anywhere and work with confidence on more surfaces than before. Microsoft's new proprietary tracking technology combines the width and power of optical technology with the precision of laser tracking to allow consumers to mouse on virtually any surface ? from a granite kitchen countertop to the living room carpet.

BlueTrack Technology will debut in two new top-of-the-line mice, Microsoft Explorer Mouse and Microsoft Explorer Mini Mouse, available this fall at BestBuy.com and in Best Buy stores.

Microsoft's BlueTrack Technology works on more surfaces than both optical and laser mice. The large, blue beam and specular optics architecture, in conjunction with a Microsoft-designed image sensor and proprietary pixel geometry, generates a high-contrast picture of the mousing surface that allows high tracking accuracy. The BlueTrack Technology light beam emanating from the bottom of the mouse is more than four times as large as the average laser beam used in today?s mice, enabling reliable mouse tracking even on difficult surfaces such as carpet.

BlueTrack Technology will debut in two new high-end Microsoft mouse products this fall - the full-size Explorer Mouse and the smaller Explorer Mini Mouse.

The Explorer Mouse with BlueTrack Technology and the Explorer Mini Mouse with BlueTrack Technology will be available at BestBuy.com and Best Buy stores in November for the estimated retail price of $99.95 and $79.95 (U.S.), respectively.
