Microsoft readies multi-touch mouse


Arc Multi-touch
It appears like Microsoft is getting ready to launch a multi-touch mouse, something the company has been working on for a while now. We wrote about the initial prototypes here, and Microsoft seems to have picked its favorite as well.

The company already registered the domain, although it currently links to Bing.

Considering that Windows 7 features native multi-touch support it was only a matter of time before we saw a product like this, although we’re yet to see how this alleged answer (rrrriiiipoff…cough…cough) to Apple’s Magic Mouse fares well in the world of Windows 7.

The mouse has apparently been listed briefly, although the listings have disappeared by press time, but the pricing has been said to be around $70.

The first picture below shows Microsoft's Arc mouse; the second one is of the multi-touch prototype back from October 2009. You can find out more here.
