Microsoft has introduced the Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 for notebooks. The company claims that this new member in its range of mice, is the first of its kind in the market being a “rechargeable (notebook) mouse with 1GB of flash memory built right into the transceiver”.
The Mobile Memory Mouse’s transceiver makes use of a 2.4GHz Wireless Technology and Bluetooth too. It has a dual purpose, as it can be used as a USB pen too.
According to Microsoft’s website, the significant features of the Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 are:
- Transceiver with 1 GB Flash Memory – The transceiver is also a fully functional flash drive, so you can store and transfer files and free up USB ports.
- 2.4 GHz Wireless Technology – The 2.4 GHz wireless USB mini-transceiver connects wirelessly right out of the box with virtually no interference, and up to 30 feet of wireless range.
- USB Rechargeable with Magnetic Connectors – Simply snap in the magnetic connectors to charge while working, using the included USB transceiver.
- High Definition Laser Technology – Microsoft High Definition Laser Mouse products are more precise, more responsive, and deliver smoother tracking.
- Battery Life Indicator – You won’t get caught with a dead battery—the Battery Status LED Indicator glows red when the battery is running low.
- Magnifier – Point and click to enlarge and edit detail using the Magnifier. (The Magnifier is not compatible with Direct3D® API in full screen mode, media players, OpenGL, and Layered Windows. If you are using Mac OS X, the Magnifier enlarges text and images on the entire screen.)
- 4-Way Scrolling – Scroll four ways for greater efficiency and comfort with Tilt Wheel Technology.
- 5-Button Mouse – Get quick access to the media, programs, and files you use most often with customizable buttons.
- Flip 3D- Easily flip through all open windows with Flip 3D.

- Right Handed Design – Mouse design is optmized for right handed users.
- Scroll Wheel – Save time and effort with the scroll wheel—navigate documents and Web pages without using the on-screen scroll bar.
- On/Off Button – Turn your 3-in-1 device off to extend battery life even longer.
- Bluetooth Mode Switch – A switch on the bottom of the mouse enables Bluetooth notebook users to connect directly to their PC without using the included transceiver.
- Carrying Case – Protect your mouse while you’re on the go.
- Designed for Notebook PCs – Compact and comfortable, our handy notebook and laptop products are designed for convenience and mobility.
Well, the features are surely attractive, but what happens to left-handed people. That surely seems to be a limitation.
Anyways, the Microsoft Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 is priced at $99.95 USD. The product is already up for pre-sale at Amazon and should be in your hands by anytime in October.
