Apple introduces Bluetooth mouse and keyboard
Posted on 16-Sep-2003 22:07 | Tags Filed under: News



Apple introduced a US$69 Bluetooth multimedia keyboard and a US$69 Bluetooth mouse.

The mouse is in the same design of Apple's current products, featuring an optical tracking engine that provides smooth accurate tracking on most surfaces. An advanced power management system automatically switches to low power modes during periods of inactivity. The off switch allows you to conserve power when you're away from your system or when you're traveling with your system.

The Bluetooth keyboard provides 128-bit encryption to keeps sensitive information safe as it is being typed.

It features 16-function keys, full numeric keypad, document navigation keys, and an inverted-T for quickly zipping up, down and sideways in a game or a spreadsheet. Audio controls and the ability to eject optical media are also included. The same power control found in the mouse is implemented on this keyboard.

The Apple Bluetooth mouse and keyboard require a Bluetooth enabled Macintosh and Mac OS X 10.2.6.

"Apple was the first to fully integrate Bluetooth support in its operating system with Mac OS X and the first to make Bluetooth standard across the entire line of professional notebooks," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.

Their documentation says it works with DLINK DBT-120, but we know that other Bluetooth dongles work with Apple's Bluetooth stack as well.
