Microsoft’s software may run all different operating systems and devices, but that doesn’t mean that its open ended business practice has prevented it from supplying PC users with it’s own Microsoft branded peripheral.  The Windows 8 release date is just around the corner, and it seems like Microsoft will launch a wedge-like mouse that may be optimized for the latest Windows release. 

Microsoft’s software may run all different operating systems and devices, but that doesn’t mean that its open ended business practice has prevented it from supplying PC users with it’s own Microsoft branded peripheral.  The Windows 8 release date is just around the corner, and it seems like Microsoft will launch a wedge-like mouse that may be optimized for the latest Windows release.

An average Microsoft branded keyboard and mouse may cost consumers a few bucks more than other brand peripherals, and a recent leaked image of a Microsoft wedge-like touch mouse suggests that Microsoft will continue to charge users a premium for an official Microsoft hardware. 

The Verge reports that the mouse will run for a cool $60.99, and quite frankly it’s too hard to tell whether or not the oddly shaped mouse is worth the money.  The surface of the mouse hints that there may be multi-touch functionality.  

This mouse may be an update to Microsoft’s current Touch Mouse (or at least some type of derivative of it) that’s optimized for Windows 7.
