Microsoft releases wireless mouse in three colours

Go anywhere for less: Microsoft Hardware offers BlueTrack technology at its lowest price ever1

Three new mice in fun colours give consumers ultimate mobility.

Auckland, New Zealand February 26, 2010 Microsoft Hardware extends its award-winning line of BlueTrack Technology mouse products, debuting the advanced tracking technology at its lowest prices ever — under $50.00 rrp.* Now people have the opportunity to track on virtually any surface** at an affordable price with three new mice to choose from — the Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500, Wireless Mouse 2000 and Comfort Mouse 4500.

BlueTrack Technology was created in response to people’s increasingly mobile lifestyles, letting them ditch their mouse pad and use their BlueTrack mouse virtually anywhere** — from the granite kitchen counter and the wood table at the coffee shop to the armrest at the airport. Debuting in December 2008, BlueTrack Technology is now available in seven Microsoft mice so consumers can choose the best design, colour and price to fit their needs.

Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 and Wireless Mouse 2000
The Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 includes a Nano transceiver that sticks out less than a centimetre from the USB port, so it can remain plugged into the computer at all times, and the Wireless Mouse 2000 comes with a mini transceiver that easily snaps into the bottom of the mouse when on the go. The two mice also offer an ambidextrous shape with rubber side grips; the Wireless Mouse 2000 is a full-size mouse while the Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 is a bit smaller, so people can pick the best fit for their hand size. The Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 will be available in Loch Ness Gray and Dragon Fruit Pink, and the Wireless Mouse 2000 will be available in Loch Ness Gray.

Comfort Mouse 4500
The Comfort Mouse 4500 is the first wired mouse featuring BlueTrack Technology, making it a great choice for people who never want to deal with changing batteries. Like its wireless counterparts, the Comfort Mouse 4500 will track on virtually any surface** and will be available in Loch Ness Gray.

Pricing and Availability
The Wireless Mouse 2000 and Comfort Mouse 4500 will be widely available from April 2010. Recommended retail prices are NZ $59.95 and $49.95 respectively. The Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 will be available for $69.95 RRP from 19TH April.

All products will be backed by a worldwide three-year limited hardware warranty from Microsoft Corp.
