microsoft mouse colors

Microsoft on Tuesday announced it will offer its popular Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 in five new colors. After looking at the colors on today's popular clothes, accessories and consumer electronics, Microsoft decided to offer the 3000 in Milk Chocolate (brown), Pomegranate (red), Crème Brûlée (khaki), Dragon Fruit (dark pink) and Aloe (green). The new colors are meant to keep the 3000 at the top of the sales charts in the US.

The notebook 3000's smart design includes a USB receiver that snaps in on the underside of the mouse itself. When it does so, it powers off the mouse to conserve the single AA battery's life, rated at 6 months. The mouse's ambidextrous design is complemented by optics featuring 1,000 dots per inch and 6,000 frames per second.

The Notebook Mouse 3000 will be available starting in May in the majority of the colors at Best Buy, with Crème brûlée and more retailers joining in June. Pricing is set at approximately $30.

    Flavours?

    As much as I despise Microsoft, I have to admit that mice are something they do well. It does pain me to have to scratch the name off something as soon as I buy it though! ;-)

    As for colours, when was the last time anyone bought any pomegranate or crème brûlée coloured clothes?!
