Based on their number 1 mouse, the Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse, with its High Definition technology, they want to launch other two mices. One is optical and the other one is laser. Both will cost less then $30.
“Since we launched our High Definition line just last September, we have sold over a million units,” said Rusty Jeffress, general manager of the Hardware Group at Microsoft. “We design our proprietary chip technology to provide our customers with the best possible performance so they enjoy their computing experiences no matter where they are.”
For notebook users, the new Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 offers an upgraded version of the Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse. Often, laptop users find themselves working in small spaces – from the seat of an airplane to a cramped coffee shop – where sometimes the only place to use their mouse is on a corner of the airplane tray or a small coffee table. With the updated High Definition technology, users will enjoy smooth and precise tracking regardless of the surface. In addition, this mouse has a smaller receiver than the previous version, which makes it more portable and easier to stow.
For the desktop, the Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 features a five-button, ambidextrous design, a Magnifier button for real-time enlargement and editing of any section of the screen, and a Tilt Wheel that makes navigating and viewing detailed spreadsheets and documents even easier. The new Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 is an affordable high-performance mouse featuring High Definition Optical Technology, an ambidextrous design with silver accents and three buttons.
Here are the advantages of this High Definition technology from Microsoft:
- Improved responsiveness – With 1,000 dots per inch, all Microsoft High Definition mices deliver the right amount of responsiveness in relation to hand movement, requiring less hand motion in small spaces such as coffee tables or airplane trays.
- Greater precision – Microsoft High Definition mice capture 6,000 frames per second to accurately track hand movement and prevent stopping or skipping, even when moving very quickly. The mice are equipped with a state-of-the-art chip, developed by Microsoft, which requires less power and maximizes efficiency, delivering an average of more than six months of battery life for wireless mice.
- Smoother tracking – Proprietary Microsoft Intelligent Tracking System — the brains of the tracking technology that reads the information the sensor is relaying — means smoother tracking without interruptions or skipping, even over unique or uneven surfaces.
And the prices:
