Verbatim Launches Artsy Mice Too

By - Source: Verbatim Email | B 8 comments

Verbatim has artsy mice too.

Not to be outdone by Microsoft Hardware's Limited Edition Artist Series of mice, Charlotte-based Verbatim launched its own artsy line of wireless Design Mice on Monday. As the name indicates, these peripherals feature a combination of 2.4 GHz connectivity and artistic design, packed in a user-friendly ergonomic shape lined with a rubberized grip for precision control.

"The Design Mice series gives consumers the option of stepping away from conventional shaped and colored peripherals while still enjoying the ultimate in performance and comfort," said Ron Hanafin, Verbatim Product Manager, Accessories and Peripherals. "We made the mice practical, stylish and performance driven, making them the perfect solution for all users."

Unlike Microsoft's line, these mice aren't designed by individual artists. However Verbatim's mice are cheaper, costing a mere $19.99 compared to Microsoft's pricier $29.95. The Design line also features a Nano USB receiver which can be thrown into a built-in storage compartment on the mouse for easy transportation.

"Compatible with both Mac and PC, the Design Mice series marries technology and performance with joyful artistic design.  Featuring an ergonomic shape that conforms to your hand and a comfort-grip scroll wheel with rubberized side grip to provide precision control, the Design Mice series is graced with an elegant pattern that is highlighted by different color contrasts," the company said on Monday.

The designs are actually rather impressive, arriving in patterned colors of burnt orange, purple, red, blue and graphite. The Design Mice are also backed with a 1-year limited warranty, and can be found shortly at Amazon.com (they're not listed as of this writing). Additional information about Verbatim's new Design Mice line can be accessed here.

    So, this one time I ate some week old curry from my fridge and threw up all over my desk. Then I called Verbatim and Microsoft and said "Hey, I just had this idea for a mouse"

    These actually look better than MS mice, they are the same design but different colors. They also look like Logitech clones.
