Message Text: Microsoft Hardware today introduced new products that work with Windows 8.

Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse packs full functionality into an ultracompact frame. Small enough to fit in your pocket, the Wedge Touch Mouse provides four-way touch scrolling and navigation at your fingertips.

The mouse comes free of cables or USB transceivers - you simply turn it on and connect it to your Bluetooth-enabled laptop or tablet. It also features BlueTrack Technology so you can use it on virtually any surface, and also includes Backpack Mode to power down and sleep along with the computer it's paired to, extending battery life.

It is estimated to retail for US$70.



The new ultraslim Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard brings full-size keyboard comfort to a tablet. Designed specifically for tablet users, Wedge Mobile Keyboard includes some of the most commonly used features, such as Windows Hot Keys and built-in media keys.

The lightweight keyboard features a durable cover that not only helps protect your keyboard from scratches but also converts into a tablet stand. When you're done using it, simply snap the cover back on the keyboard to power it down before you stash it in your bag.

It uses the Bluetooth technology to wirelessly connect to your tablet without a cable or transceiver. It's estimated retail price is US$80.
