It's already been rather 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.

Today, Microsoft unveils the Explorer Touch Mouse - the newest addition to the touch family alongside Touch Mouse and Arc Touch Mouse - featuring an advanced scroll strip for vertical and horizontal navigation on your PC or Mac. Microsoft has taken touch strip technology to the next level to include side-to-side swipes and five customizable buttons. Holding true to its name, the Explorer Touch Mouse lets you explore beyond the confines of your workspace with BlueTrack Technology - you can ditch the mouse pad to roam on virtually any surface, from your couch to the carpet. The Explorer Touch Mouse is also the first Microsoft mouse to offer an 18-month battery life.

The Explorer Touch Mouse will be available in September for $49.95, in four colors: Coal Black, Storm Gray, Sangria Red and Rust Red.
