Microsoft unveiled a new interesting mouse today, the Mobile Memory Mouse 8000. This is the first notebook mouse with 1GB of flash memory integrated into the transceiver.

Other features include magnetic charging and Bluetooth support:
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 Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 will be available in October for $99.95 - kinda expensive for a mouse.
