Apple ships Bluetooth Mighty Mouse

Laser tracking enabled

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Apple has launched the wireless incarnation of its Mighty Mouse multi-button, scroll-ball fitted input device. As anticipated from recent Federal Communications Commission (FCC) filings, the rodent used Bluetooth 2.0 and drops LED optical tracking for a laser-based system.

Like the previous, wired version, the wireless MM has a pair of side-mounted buttons - hopefully, they've been moved to a slightly more comfortable position this time - while two sensors mounted beneath the single plastic cover detect touches to emulate the action of a two-button mouse. The tiny ball on top allows users to scroll diagonally as well as horizontally and vertically, trackball fashion.

According to Apple, the product requires Mac OS X 10.4.6 or above, and a Bluetooth-equipped Mac, obviously. The Wireless MM costs $69 in the US, £49 inc. VAT in the UK. It's available now. ®
