unceremoniously leaked, but now the Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse is all sorts of official. Granted, it's kinda tough to get excited about a mouse, but Redmond's latest pointer is actually pretty neat. It sports BlueTrack Technology for getting your double click on while using your jeans or carpet as a mouse pad, and a haptic scroll strip that lets you feel the speed at which you're flicking through the web. Oh, and that strip lets you scroll both horizontally and vertically -- not bad for $49.95. Microsoft even claims it can last 18-months on a single set of batteries, just long enough to forget this wireless mouse even has a set of DC cells inside. Check out the extraordinarily brief PR after the break and keep those purchasing fingers holstered for now -- this bad boy wont be hitting shelves till September.
