mk_productdetails_mmm8k.jpgThe hardware department of the Microsoft unveils the first notebook mouse with 1GB memory built in the transceiver. New mouse is released under the name Microsoft(R) Mobile Memory Mouse 8000.

“With the continued rise in notebook sales, there is a huge demand for smart peripherals that help mobile users get their work done more efficiently, and the Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 combines three key tools into one stylish device,” said Matt Barlow, worldwide director of marketing and partner development at Microsoft Hardware. “Over the past 25 years Microsoft Hardware has consistently raised the bar of innovation, and adding a gigabyte of memory to the mouse transceiver is truly a computing milestone. We’ve packed more memory into the transceiver than an entire computer had 25 years ago.”

The Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 uses an innovative magnetic charging system that lets consumers continue working while the mouse recharges. The charging cord magnetically connects at one end to the underside of the mouse, and the other to the tip of the transceiver. Now consumers never have to interrupt their work when the battery is low or give up an extra USB port to recharge their mouse.

The Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 features advanced wireless technology that allows notebook users to choose how they want to connect – with 2.4GHz wireless or Bluetooth. A switch on the bottom of the mouse enables Bluetooth notebook users to connect directly to their laptop without using the included transceiver.

The Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 is now available for special pre-sale at and will ship in October when the product is released.
