Microsoft also has some new keyboards and mice up for pre-order

New Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse

Microsoft revealed a plethora of exciting devices today during its dedicated event, including the Surface Pro 7, Laptop 3, and the ARM-powered Pro X coming later this year. But in addition to those, there are a few accessories also on the way, specifically some new keyboards and mice. These are also up for pre-order now, though you can't really find them listed on the Microsoft Store that easily. Twitter user WalkingCat has thankfully shared direct links to the new accessories, though.

Starting with mice, there's the Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse, which is just $19.99 and connects to your computer via Bluetooth 5.0. It's a pretty standard device with red tracking, an imaging rate of up to 4000 frames per second, and a tracking speed of up to thirty inches per second. It's powered by a replaceable AA battery and not rechargeable. The Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse comes in four colors - mint, peach, pastel blue, and matte black, and you can pre-order it here.

Next up is a new Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse (pictured at the top of this article), which, as you'd expect is meant to be more comfortable and ergonomic. It's a wired USB (Type-A) mouse, with an imaging rate up 3000 frames per second and tracking speed up to 30 inches per second. It uses Microsoft BlueTrack technology, though, and it also has two customizable buttons, which might help justify the increased pricing of $39.99. It only comes in black.

While not exactly new, Microsoft is releasing a few more color variants for its Arc Mouse, which join the existing Black, Platinum, Burgundy, and Cobalt Blue. The new colors are more pastel in tone and they are lilac, sage (green), and soft pink, and they cost $79.99, just like the existing ones.

Moving on to keyboards, there's a new Microsoft Bluetooth Keyboard which, just like the aforementioned Bluetooth mouse, works via Bluetooth 5.0 with retro compatibility for versions 4.x. What's interesting about it is that it features the Office key we've seen mentioned before, as well as an emoji key. It's powered by two AAA batteries that should last three years before you need to replace them. It costs $49.99 and it's only available in black.

Finally, there's a new Microsoft Ergonomic keyboard, which is, again, designed for extra comfort and productivity. It's wired, so you won't need to change its batteries, and it also comes only in black. It will run you $59.99.

All of the devices above are available for pre-order now and are expected to start shipping on October 15, a full week ahead of the new Surface devices, which you can also pre-order now.
