Microsoft outs two new BlueTrack mice, keyboard

MS BlueTrack 5000 and 6000

Microsoft grew its lineup of BlueTrack-based devices today with two new mice as well as the first combo kit with the technology. The Wireless Mobile Mouse 6000 is the first of the blue laser mice to include a mini USB transceiver and is particularly suited to notebooks, as owners can use the mouse on almost any flat surface while keeping the 2.4GHz RF adapter plugged into a portable while it's stowed away in a bag. The five-button mouse lasts for up to 10 months on its batteries and has a proper power switch to prevent the mouse from waking its host computer.

The Wireless Mouse 5000 is intended for the desktop and has an ambidextrous layout. Although its RF transceiver is larger, it's small enough to tuck into a compartment underneath the mouse for travel. It lasts for a shorter 8 months on batteries.

Finishing the updates, the Wireless Desktop 3000 combines the regular Wireless Keyboard 3000 with the just-launched Wireless Mouse 5000 to give users a BlueTrack mouse and an RF keyboard without needing separate USB adapters.

All three products should ship next month and cost $50 for the Wireless Mobile Mouse, $40 for its desktop counterpart, and $70 for the Desktop pairing. The keyboard by itself ships for $40.
