Microsoft launches Touch Mouse in India

Microsoft India launched ‘Touch Mouse; that it said “makes everyday tasks more fluid and intuitive by using natural gestures instead of clicks”.

Exclusively designed for Windows 7, it combines the virtues of the old familiar mouse with multi-touch gestures, the company said in a statement.

“It marries natural human gestures with the ability of an electronic mouse and helps click, flick, scroll, pan, tilt and swipe on Windows 7 seamlessly”, it said.

“A first of a kind in India, the Touch Mouse is soothingly captivating, given its fluid, rhythmic movements, seamless and unobstructed surface, and multi-functionality”.

According to the company, the Touch Mouse’s multi-touch functionality helps users navigate easier and faster with a flick of their fingers.

Priced at Rs 3,999, Touch Mouse is based on BlueTrack technology and is ambidextrous in design. Further, the mouse pad is made redundant as it can be used on all surfaces, except clear glass and mirrors, the statement said.

Satish Parreddi, Senior Category Manager Microsoft Hardware India, said, “This is the first time we’ve married the control and precision of a mouse with the interactivity that touch delivers on the PC”.
