Microsoft Hardware this month debuted its wireless Comfort Desktop 5000.
Featuring a Comfort Curve layout that's meant to encourage natural wrist posture with a slight 6-degree curve, the Comfort Desktop 5000 features an updated soft-touch palm rest; low-profile quiet touch keys; and a contoured, compact shape. The included Wireless Mouse 5000 comes with rubber side grips, an ambidextrous shape and the company's BlueTrack technology.
BlueTrack technology is engineered to let consumers mouse on virtually any surface, including shag carpeting and granite.
Both the mouse and keyboard wirelessly connect to the computer via a 2.4GHz mini transceiver that works up to 30 feet away, the company said.
The desktop set will be available this month for a $79.95 suggested retail.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
