Saitek’s new touch-scroll Obsidian Mouse
The US division of Saitek has unveiled the Obsidian Mouse. This designer jet-black mouse is quite a contrast to its earlier colorful ones. Resembling its namesake stone, this pointer exudes a smooth effect and the traditional scroll wheel is replaced with a touch-sensitive scroll pad and seam free top buttons. The browser back and forward buttons are cleverly hidden in the concentric patterns on the sides. Ridding you of wires, this mouse works on radio frequency and works on two lithium-ion batteries. It has a 1000 dpi optical sensor for precision and works with Mac OS, Windows 2000/Vista/XP.
Saitek’s new touch-scroll Obsidian Mouse costs $50 and will be available online soon.
