Said to be scheduled for release later this month, Microsoft simply call it the Explorer Touch and have packed it with BlueTrack technology to ensure it will remain operable on practically any surface as well as being wireless in nature.

 

Other features of the mouse include five programmable buttons, scrolling in the form of a touch pad and a compact USB receiver that can be tucked away in a compartment under the mouse.
