After much anticipation, we are excited to announce the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse! You might have seen the teases we shared on Twitter –we were trying to get you thinking about things that were flat and when you see this mouse you’ll know why. Some of the creative responses we got surprised us!
You can see, Arc Touch is all about innovative design. The mouse is not dead as some articles have said recently, but needs are evolving. Most of us now use our PCs and mice in new ways and new places. In talking to notebook PC users, we realized we needed to find a way for the mouse to transition easier from place to place. This mouse completely flattens for portability to easily fit in your pocket or laptop bag, and also bends for comfortable use. This mouse is perfect for the person on-the-go that doesn’t want to compromise on style.
Aside from the design, one of my favorite features is the new touch strip that was put in the mouse for controlled scrolling with just the flick of a finger. Now I can quickly scroll through my inbox and stop on a dime with a quick tap on the middle of the strip. I do this a lot while I’m thinking or on a phone call.
From fidgeting with the mouse and popping it up from lying flat to the new scroll, this mouse is truly in a category all its own. And it might be too early to think about for some, but we know there are a lot of you out there getting your holiday lists ready so put Arc Touch on it! Pre-orders start today on Amazon.com, Buy.com and BestBuy.com and will be shipped this December.
