Microsoft added two new desktop mice to its line of input devices with the new Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 and Wireless Laser Mouse 7000, giving consumers more choice and flexibility in their computing experience.
The Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 debuts a new desktop mouse design, combining a full-size mouse with a portable snap-in transceiver for easy mobility. Microsoft also announced the Wireless Laser Mouse 7000, offering top-notch technology and recharging at an affordable price point.
The Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 blurs the lines between desktop and notebook mice by creating a full-size mouse with a portable snap-in transceiver for easy storage and mobility. With more than one-third of consumers buying full-sized desktop mice for their notebook computers, this mouse delivers on a growing computing need: moving easily from on the desk to on the go, without compromising on size and comfort.
“Our research shows that consumers are more mobile than ever when it comes to using their computers,” said Sean Butterworth, product marketing manager at Microsoft. “With the Wireless Laser Mouse 6000, they can easily take their notebook computer and mouse with them, from the desk to the kitchen or to their local coffee shop, without having to compromise on size and comfort.”
Microsoft offers a stylish, rechargeable mouse at an affordable price with the Wireless Laser Mouse 7000, joining the company’s line of rechargeable input devices that includes the Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000, Wireless Laser Mouse 8000 and Mobile Memory Mouse 8000. By choosing a rechargeable mouse, users can reduce their battery consumption by up to 80 percent over three years of use. The horizontal charging station provides a sturdy base, and the battery status indicator lets users know when it is time to charge. The Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 also offers high-end design elements, a mini transceiver and an ergonomic shape.
The Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 and Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 feature advanced wireless technology using 2.4GHz frequency. Intelligent technology “hops” frequency when it encounters interference, making it ideal for crowded wireless environments with multiple computers.
The Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 and Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 will be widely available in March 2008 for an estimated retail price of $49.95 and $69.95 (U.S.), respectively.
