Microsoft put to fore their Touch Mouse, around October last year, and now it brings the Explorer Touch mouse to India. This PC peripheral can be used with PC and Mac, while it is said to blend in style with comfort. A new touch strip is embedded on the mouse, which has been optimized for swift vertical and horizontal scrolling. Users can swipe, flick or touch the strip to navigate and the 2.4GHz wireless technology offers connection upto 4.5m away.

The Blue Track Technology claims to distinguish it from the ordinary optical and laser-based mice. This technology enables one to use the mouse on just about any surface - wood, marble, granite, or even on a carpet. The Explorer Touch Mouse comes with five customizable buttons for everyday tasks like cut, copy, paste and open new window. It also comes with scroll speeds, which use haptic feedback (light vibration that signals scrolling speed). The ambidextrous design allows using it with both hands. The battery life stretches up to 18 months, while the two- coloured battery indicator will alert you when the batteries need to be replaced. It has a snap-in nano transceiver, so you can either leave the transceiver plugged-in to the computer or conveniently store it in the bottom of the mouse.
Announcing the launch, Satish Parreddi, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Retail Sales & Marketing, Microsoft India said, “With the launch of the Explorer Touch Mouse, Microsoft has now brought into India its complete family of touch mice including the previously launched Touch Mouse and the Arc Touch Mouse. The Explorer Touch Mouse responds to the lightest swipe, flick or touch of a single finger paving the way for effortless navigation. Not only is it stunning to look at, but is also specially designed keeping in mind today’s aware PC user who wants a fun, easy and convenient way of interacting with a mouse.”
The Explorer Touch Mouse is priced at Rs. 2,399.
