Microsoft Hardware Unveils Ten New Products
Leading the new lineup is a groundbreaking new mouse technology: BlueTrack Technology. This new tracking technology – available only from Microsoft – lets consumers use a mouse almost anywhere and work with confidence on more surfaces than ever before. BlueTrack Technology is better than optical, better than laser, and it allows consumers to mouse on virtually any surface – from a granite countertop to an airport bench to the living-room carpet. The new technology debuts in two Microsoft mice: Explorer Mouse and Explorer Mini Mouse.
Microsoft also raises the style stakes with the unveiling of a revolutionary crescent-moon shaped mouse – the Arc Mouse. This new mouse is all about the fashion edge and it brings design to the PC with a unique shape that folds closed to reduce in size by almost half, giving consumers the comfort of a full-sized mouse with the portability of a notebook mouse.
The new lineup also includes:
- LifeCam Show & LifeCam VX-5500 – Two stylish webcams that move easily from notebook to desktop.
- Video Messages – A new communications service that keeps people connected; it’s like voicemail for your webcam.
- Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 – An ultra-thin keyboard with a translucent border and a full-sized, ergonomist approved mouse that includes a snap-in transceiver for perfect portability.
- Wireless Mobile Mouse 3000 – A comfortable, ambidextrous mouse offered in glimmering special edition colors.
