Microsoft is one of the best known brands in the world and its Windows brand of operating systems has been used by almost everyone who will read this post (even if you aren’t using it now). But less well known is that Microsoft has also been making various input devices such as keyboards, game-pads and of course mice for a long time. On February the 24th, Microsoft launched three new mice with featuring BlueTrack technology which according to Microsoft enables mice to work on just about any surface.
Laptops, notebooks, netbooks, PDAs, even smart phones have frustrated users due to their ineffective input methods over the course of history. That is not to say of course that all the devices ever made had bad keyboards or touchpads or touchscreens etc but it has been a common failing. Thus were portable keyboards and mice created.
Microsoft’s latest offerings, the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500, Microsoft Wireless Mouse 2000 and Microsoft Comfort Mouse 4500 are nothing new in the scheme of things and therefore might well boggle consumers as to why they should purchase them.
Well there are a number of factors that make these mice attractive, for one thing, they should be really really cheap, in fact according to Microsoft they might well retail for less than $30.
Next is the fact that they feature Microsoft BlueTrack, which is according to Microsoft capable of rendering your mousepad completely unnecessary (unless you plan on using your Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500, Microsoft Wireless Mouse 2000 or Microsoft Comfort Mouse 4500 on a clear glass or reflective surface).
Another major selling point might well be the rather unique colors the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500, Microsoft Wireless Mouse 2000 and Microsoft Comfort Mouse 4500 will be available in. Dragon Fruit Pink and Lochness Gray will be the options available for the Microsofot Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 and the Microsoft Comfort Mouse 4500 will be available in Sea Blue, Poppy Red and Strawberry Pink.
Microsoft also seems to be keeping in mind that people are unique and not all users are right-handed. So both the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 and Microsoft Wireless Mouse 2000 are shaped in a manner suited to either kind of users (right-handed or left-handed). Also the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 is somewhat smaller than the Microsoft Wireless Mouse 2000 and so people can pick the one that feels right to them.
To conclude, while nothing out of the ordinary except for Microsoft BlueTrack technology (and in color choices perhaps), the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500, Microsoft Wireless Mouse 2000 and Microsoft Comfort Mouse 4500 seem to be priced reasonably enough for lower-end mice. These mice seem capable of replacing any other nameless low-end mouse that you might be using quite effectively but definitely not mice from companies like Logitech, RAZER, Cooler Master or any other gaming class mouse or mice making company that you might name.
