Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse: A mouse that can be carried anywhere

Microsoft was supposed to unveil its Arc Touch Mouse in September but before that, a German online retailer,, revealed the mouse at their product page.

As per the product details posted by the retailer, the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse is a wireless peripheral device. The biggest advantage of this mouse compared to traditional mouse is that you can easily carry it any where. It can be flattened out so that it does not take much space.

The Arc Touch is made of glossy plastic, metal, and a rubberized material serving as the palm rest.

Featuring Microsfot’s Blue Track System, the Arc Touch Mouse has a gray bar between its two buttons that serves as a touch-scroll sensor. The device supports RF technology and a “USB nano transceiver” for connectivity. It does not support Blueetooth. If not working, the 2.4 GHz USB dongle can be stored in the battery compartment. The mouse also has a battery indicator and physical power control.

The mouse will go on sale from October 13, 2010 and it would be priced at €69.99 ($90); almost the same as Apple’s Magic Trackpad and Magic Mouse sold in Germany. In the U.S., the mouse is expected to be priced at $69.95.
