The Microsoft Touch Mouse is an ergonomic, multi-touch mouse released for Windows 7 as a competitor to Apple’s notorious Magic Mouse. Unlike its predecessor from 2010, the “touch” Windows Arc Touch, the “multitouch” Windows Touch Mouse features a “matrix of capacitive touch-sending electrodes” that function like buttons. It supports inertial and sideways finger scrolling, thumb swiping, flicks, pinch-to-zoom, and panning. In addition, the Microsoft Touch Mouse relies on BlueTrack technology, which means it can be tracked on virtually any surface—carpet, wood, etc. And since it’s wireless, it comes with a nano-sized 2.4GHz USB receiver. Plus it’s designed for ambidextrous use.

After working with this mouse for a couple of months, I can't really recommend it to demanding users. It really needs a software update. I won't return it only because it was still an upgrade over what I had earlier.

I got this mouse now. Really nice! I don't have issues like other people wrote about. I kind of wish there were some sensitivity settings to play with, but it's great to use out of the box. I'm sure they'll make tweaks later to enable customizations.

does anyone own this mouse yet? I've heard some bad/mediocre thing about it, but in Microsoft's videos it looks all great of course....
