Microsoft unveiled two new wireless keyboard; the Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 and Wireless Media Desktop 1000.
Wireless Laser Desktop 6000: Elegance and Productivity
The Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 offers first-class beauty at an affordable price. This set includes the Wireless Laser Mouse 6000, a full-size mouse with a right-handed ergonomic design that features a snap-in transceiver so notebook users can easily take the mouse with them when they are on the road. The sophisticated Windows Aero-inspired keyboard has a smoked translucent border and sleek, compact shape that is admirable from every angle. Featuring Microsoft’s best-selling Comfort Curve layout, this keyboard delivers supreme comfort by encouraging a more natural hand position with a slight six-degree curve. The Comfort Curve design surpasses other industry styles — with more than 7 million units sold worldwide1 — to bring true comfort to typing. The keyboard’s quiet touch keys also add to its appeal. In addition, this keyboard features top technology and productivity tools:
2.4GHz wireless technology gives consumers a confident wireless connection and a range of up to 30 feet, even in crowded wireless environments.
One-touch access to Windows Flip 3D allows users to flip through open windows in a stack and quickly switch among applications for added productivity.2
My Favorites Keys deliver one-touch access to users’ most-used Web sites, files and folders. Users simply push and hold a key to assign it to the current destination, just as they would with a car stereo’s preset buttons.
Media Center controls allow users to access popular media activities such as play, pause and volume with one touch.
Battery life indicator shows two colors: green when the batteries have sufficient power and red when the batteries are running low.
The Wireless Keyboard 6000 also launches today as a stand-alone item, while the Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 hit retail shelves in March 2008.
Wireless Media Desktop 1000:
The Wireless Media Desktop 1000 is the perfect companion for the media enthusiast, providing quick, one-touch access to photos, Windows Media Player and My Favorites Keys. The ultra-thin keyboard gives users full use of Windows Vista with quick access to Windows Flip 3D2 and the Windows Start Button. The desktop set also includes an optical mouse with a comfortable ambidextrous design — all at an affordable price.
