Microsoft introduces Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 and Digital Media Keyboard 3000
Posted on 12-May-2008 13:29 | Tags Filed under: News


Microsoft Corp. is announcing its latest keyboard and mouse desktop set, the Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 (pictured below), with a design created to complement the Windows Vista operating system.

The new desktop set includes an ultra-thin Comfort Curve keyboard and rechargeable mouse. The keyboard features a Windows Aero-inspired translucent design, floating Hot Keys for instant access to web sites, files and folders, plus instant access to Windows Flip 3D.



“This keyboard is a perfect example of Microsoft’s focus on connecting its hardware with Windows Vista, bringing the elegance of Windows Aero to the keyboard,” says Danica Aitken, product marketing manager, Microsoft Hardware. “The Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 truly brings the best of both worlds together — a beautiful design and a full suite of productivity features — making it the best option for customers desiring a sophisticated accessory for their computer.”

The Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 keyboard features Comfort Curve design, which encourages a more natural position with a slight 6-degree curve. The company says more than 6 million Comfort Curve keyboards were sold worldwide.

The included Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 is a stylish, rechargeable mouse that complements the sleek keyboard. The horizontal charging station provides a sturdy base, and the battery status indicator lets users know when it is time to charge.

By choosing a rechargeable mouse, users can reduce their battery consumption by up to 80 percent over three years of use.

The desktop set uses 2.4 GHz wireless technology. The technology “hops” frequency when it encounters interference, making it ideal for crowded wireless environments with multiple computers. The set can work from a distance of up to 30 feet from the receiver.

Microsoft also announced the Digital Media Keyboard 3000 (below), an affordable keyboard that enables users to use their digital with one-touch access to photos, Windows Media Player, My Favorites Keys and Zoom.



This thin keyboard is also optimized for Windows Vista, with quick access to Flip 3D and the Windows Start Button.

The Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 will be available in-stores 17 May 2008 for a recommended retail price of NZ$219 (N.Z.) while the Digital Media Keyboard 3000 will be available from 25 June 2008 for an estimated retail price of NZ$59 (N.Z.).
