In addition to the new surface laptop, Microsoft also presented another product of the Surface series last evening. The Microsoft Surface Arc Mouse is a new Bluetooth mouse, which can be pre-ordered in the US at the price of 79.99 USD.
Microsoft Surface Arc Mouse: Specifications
So far, Microsoft offered only the surface mouse under the name of the surface series, but last night the portfolio was extended by a more portable model. The new Microsoft Surface Arc Mouse can be transported flat in the pocket, but can easily be put into the usual hump shape. The entire front half is designed as a touchpad and is therefore used not only for clicking but also for scrolling.
Surface Arc Mouse: Up to 9 months running time
Like most mobile mice, the new Microsoft Surface Arc Mouse can be connected to all computers via Bluetooth 4.0. The two supplied AAA batteries should be able to withstand up to 9 months, whereby Microsoft does not announce the daily usage time of this estimate. Once the batteries are empty, they can simply be replaced, which means that the next few months no longer have to worry about it.
Surface Arc Mouse: Price and Release date
In the USA, the Microsoft Surface Arc Mouse can be pre-ordered in the colors Burgundy, Light Grey and Cobalt Blue for the price of 79.99 USD, but this is not yet listed in the official online shop. Costs in Europe will probably be between 80 and 90 euros.
