Microsoft announced four new BlueTrack Technology products: the Wireless Mobile Mouse 6000 featuring Microsoft?s first nano transceiver, the full-sized Wireless Mouse 5000, and the sleek mouse and keyboard combo Wireless Desktop 3000.
Unveiled last fall, the BlueTrack Technology works on more surfaces than both optical and laser mice, including smooth and shiny surfaces such as granite and marble. In addition, the technology enables reliable mouse tracking even on difficult surfaces such as carpet.
The first new mouse to join the BlueTrack Technology family is perfect for using on the go. Featuring a sleek, ambidextrous design with chrome accents, the Wireless Mobile Mouse 6000 introduces Microsoft?s first nano transceiver. Sticking out only 0.8 centimeters from the USB port, the transceiver can easily remain plugged into the computer or be stored conveniently right in the mouse. The other new mouse launched today, the Wireless Mouse 5000, is also ambidextrous, providing full-sized comfort in either hand with a snap-in transceiver that lets consumers take it on the road.
The first desktop to feature BlueTrack Technology ? the Wireless Desktop 3000 ? will turn heads with its stylish design. Paired with the Wireless Mouse 5000, the keyboard?s compact footprint, 2.4 GHz wireless technology, and plug-and-play minitransceiver make it a great notebook PC companion. The keyboard also features quiet touch keys, a thin-profile design and a soft-touch palm rest. This keyboard will also be available in a stand-alone version, called the Wireless Keyboard 3000.
The Wireless Mobile Mouse 6000, Wireless Mouse 5000, Wireless Desktop 3000 and Wireless Keyboard 3000 will be available in June for the estimated retail prices of $49.95, $39.95, $69.95 and $39.95, respectively.All products will be backed by a worldwide three-year limited hardware warranty from Microsoft.
