Microsoft Touch Mouse
This year at CES we announced a new multitouch mouse called the Microsoft Touch Mouse. This is a full multitouch device made to work exclusively with Windows 7 (it will work as a normal wireless mouse on other systems, but no touch.) The mouse includes a number of gestures that help you perform common tasks like minimizing, paging and panning functions with just swipes of your fingers without your hand having to leave the mouse for your keyboard. The mouse has a micro-dongle and our BlueTrack technology for use on normally challenging surfaces like glass or marble.
Debbie Uttecht from the hardware team invited me to take a first look at this hardware, after going through the proper pre-CES security measures, of course. The new mouse will be available later this year from retailers, with pre-order at the Microsoft Store.
