Microsoft has recently announced their latest keyboard and mouse set — the Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000. Just to begin with, the new set is wireless, with both the keyboard and mouse using a shared USB 2.4GHz transceiver.
They keyboard itself, aside from being Windows 7 ready, has a Comfort Curve layout with a soft-touch palm rest and low-profile quiet touch keys. The mouse offers an ambidextrous friendly shape along with rubber side grips and uses Microsoft BlueTrack technology for tracking.
Now, getting back to the Windows 7 ready features, the keyboard has a feature called Taskbar Favorites that will give users an easy way to access and open their applications. Other features specific for Windows 7 include Device Stage which gives the user easy access to common tasks as well as Windows Flip which will allow users to easily see a thumbnail preview of all open windows by pressing a single button.
The Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 will retail for $80 when it hits stores later this month. However, if for some reason you feel the need to rush out and purchase this now, it is currently available for pre-order though Amazon.
