Microsoft Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 Announced

Microsoft Unveils First Notebook Mouse With 1 GB of Flash Memory Built Into Transceiver

Three-in-one transceiver delivers on consumer need for more available USB ports.
Microsoft Hardware is taking mobile computing to a new level with the Microsoft Mobile Memory Mouse 8000, the industry’s first rechargeable notebook mouse with 1 GB of flash memory built right into the transceiver. Designed to prevent Universal Serial Bus (USB) port shortage, the single transceiver is a three-in-one supertool that lets users simultaneously work wirelessly, save important files with 1 GB of storage and recharge the mouse without deficiency in performance — all through one USB port.

Computing on the go has never been more productive, with the Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 freeing up USB ports and delivering all the tools consumers need to get the job done in one sleek, compact device. With the added convenience of 1 GB of storage in the mouse transceiver, users can easily store the information they need on the go — whether it’s their favorite photos, PowerPoint presentations or even music files.

“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.”

Memory in the Mouse
With 1 GB of flash memory in the Mobile Memory Mouse 8000, storing files on the road has never been easier. The Mobile Memory Mouse 8000’s transceiver has plenty of space to save and transport important files, whether it is a PowerPoint presentation for a meeting, Microsoft Word documents to send to the printer, or a video clip of the family to take on a business trip.

Simply Magnetic Charging
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 included AAA rechargeable battery also offers more than three weeks of battery power on a full charge.

Get Confident With 2.4 GHz or Choose to Go Bluetooth
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 2.4GHz transceiver connects to all notebooks and provides the following three key benefits:

  • Confident connection with virtually no interference. Intelligent technology “hops” frequency when it encounters interference, making it ideal for crowded wireless environments with multiple computers.
  • Wireless freedom. Users can sit back and click up to 30 feet away from the transceiver, even if it’s out of sight.
  • Easy setup and use. Users can just plug in the transceiver and start working.

Windows Flip 3D at Your Fingertips
The Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 creates a seamless connection between hardware and Windows Vista with new access to the popular Windows Flip 3D feature right from the mouse. With the press of a button, users can flip through open windows in a stack, and quickly switch between applications for added productivity. The mouse also features proprietary High Definition Laser Technology, a Tilt Wheel and two side buttons (Magnifier and Back) so customers can enjoy a highly efficient and top-of-the-line notebook mouse.

More Than Another Pretty Mouse
All the functionality of the Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 is packed into a design of pure elegance and complete comfort. Microsoft’s first right-handed notebook mouse offers many comfort-boosting features, including a sculpted right-handed shape, a deep thumb scoop and a curved top surface for hours of comfortable use. With black high-gloss surfaces and real metal finishes, it’s the sleekest notebook mouse available. A carrying case completes the package, holding and protecting the mouse, transceiver, and charging cable. Whether users are at home or on the go, the Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 is the only notebook device needed to get the job done.

Pricing and Availability
Microsoft Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 will be widely available in October 2007 for an estimated retail price of $99.95 (U.S.). The Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 is now available for special pre-sale at Amazon.com and will ship in October when the product is widely released.
