Redmond has a history with mice. With both keyboard and mice, but the company has shown renewed interest in launching new computer mouse models now that it is playing the hardware game.

You know, the whole devices and services deal.

But if you can get sleek accessories like this at sweet prices, then it leaves little room for complains. Microsoft has just announced that it plans to release its Wireless Mouse 1850 later this month, for a very reasonable and enticing price of $14.95.

As the Mobile in the name suggests, this peripherals is primarily designed for people that use notebooks and laptops, though Surface Pro owners can also find great use for this mouse, in desktop software.

The device is only 3.95 inches long and 2.29 inches wide.

And while it is designed for both left and right handed users, Microsoft has still managed to pack in a scroll wheel in the middle. Equally interesting is the fact that the included 2.4GHz mini USB transceiver can be stored inside the casing when not in use.

This clearly is a well-designed and well-thought-out product.

One final word about the color choices. The company has made the Wireless Mobile Mouse available in five richly named colors — Coal Black, Flame Red, Orchid Pink, Pantone Purple and Wool Blue.

I told you they were richly named.

    This will probably be big in older demographics, but the mouses in this picture look sleek and attractive. If you throw in the cheap price, I think this will work out well for Microsoft!

    I like this idea! Seems like a fun one. It’s always good to have color options and I like the cool names like “flame red” as well. This is a winner in my book!

    This is the first thing I’ve seen in awhile that is accurately priced! I remember when mouses used to be much more expensive, but that’s obviously changed as they’ve become less useful and necessary.

    I like all of those colors, but I wish they would add even more! In this day and age when mouses aren’t needed, I think people need to really love them to want to buy them, even if they’re priced fairly like these are.

    Do these require a mousepad or do they work on all surfaces and even air at this point? I’m curious because I havent had a mouse in forever!

    at this day and age – surely Bluetooth would be a more viable option, esp with the lack of many USB ports on these new travel friendly computers…

      True, true.

    I think it’s about time to replace my Logitech cordless keyboard/mouse set. Maybe I should take a look at Microsoft.
