Following a teaser campaign, Razer today used CeBIT as the venue for the introduction of the Salmosa, its first mouse targeted directly at gamers or others interested in performance mice for the first time. The three-button mouse has an unusually high-resolution 1,800DPI optical sensor that provides precise responses but is set apart most by its weight, according to Razer: the pointer is one of the lightest in the class and is designed to be easily flicked across the surface for fast responses in action games.
The ergonomics are also designed to be certain, with extra-large left- and right- buttons as well as a teflon grip and a 24-point scroll wheel for extra precision. Like most Razer mice, all mouse buttons can be reprogrammed using custom Windows software. The USB-based mouse works on a standard level with nearly any computer and should be available worldwide in August, with pricing likely to be set at $35 in the US.
