Metro Mouse is Microsoft's Cheapest BlueTrack

After about a month or so of teasing, Microsoft finally spilled the beans on its Arc Touch mouse. The sleek, elegant design meant a heftier price tag was attached to the product. However, Microsoft may soon offer a cheaper alternative for those of us unwilling to shell out $70 for a mouse.

Spotted on Russian website TheVista.ru, the Metro Mouse is an unannounced wired mouse from Microsoft that incorporates Redmond's BlueTrack technology and is designed to be comfortable for both lefties and righties. Price is looks to be under $20, which would make it the cheapest in the BlueTrack line. Also, it's pink. No word on whether it will be available in other colors (we're assuming it will be), but we think the pink accents are actually quite charming.

    I could lug around a mouse with my laptop and hope with bluetrack it will work on any surface, or i could just use a trackball and be ballin away.

    What's with the mouse having the cable to the side instead of the middle? Not sure if that effects much, but just looks weird not having the cable in the middle

    Under $20 is very cheap, but the color is a bit...off.

    Looks like there is no separation between left and right click, probably one of those tilting things (like Mighty Mouse). I HATE those tilting things.
