Microsoft Malaysia launches the first wireless SideWinder X8 mouse featuring Microsoft’s latest BlueTrack Technology.

The X8 uses Microsoft’s new, proprietary BlueTrack Technology that gives it very high frame rate, speed and acceleration and a tracking range from 250 to 4,000 dots per inch (dpi).

It utilizes a 2.4GHz wireless connection that is built for lag-free play and also features an innovative play-and-charge system to ensure a nonstop gaming experience. You could get up to 30 hours on a simgle charge of about 3 hours. It also offers custom tuning at several levels, including the ability to program seven buttons, change sensitivity on the fly, record macros while playing a game and three sets of custom Teflon feet for the needs of different gaming styles.

Also announced was the new white Arc Mouse, targeted at Mac users. Previously only available in Japan, the white Arc Mouse comes with a unique foldable design, which reduces it size by almost half for portability when it is snapped shut, but provides complete comfort when opened to its full size. Coming in February 2009, it will be bundle Office For Mac, Home and Student Edition.

The SideWinder X8 Mouse will be widely available from 23 February 2009 for an estimated retail price of RM299 while the white Arc mouse will be available in an Office For Mac 2008 Home and Student edition bundle from ECS ASTAR Sdn Bhd for RM599.
