Designed for both left- and right-handed use
Computer accessory maker Genius has added two RF wireless mice to its lineup, the Traveler 6000 Wireless Mouse and the the Traveler 6000 Classic Wireless Mouse [website not yet updated], now available in the US and Canada. The two models are identical with one difference: the Classic model features a styled black top cover design, whereas the regular model sports solid color cover in Diamond Black, Royal Blue or Ruby Rose.
Both feature a 1200dpi optical engine for smooth, accurate mousing and a design that works with with either hand. It connects to host computers using an extremely small "pico" USB RF receiver (2.4GHz). The mouse itself also features a storage compartment for the pico receiver when not in use, and an on/off switch for saving battery power, making both models ideal for portable and traveling use. Both models require only a single AAA battery (and one is included in the packaging).
The Traveler 6000 series wireless mice require either Mac OS X 10.4 or higher or Windows XP or later. The manufacturer's suggested retail price is $15 for the Traveler 6000 Wireless, and $17 for the Traveler 6000 Classic Wireless.
