Logitech announced today that its Cordless MouseMan Optical, first unveiled earlier this year, is now shipping in volume worldwide. The mouse has seen limited retail distribution in the month since its release, but Logitech says it’s been quite successful, racking up more than 200,000 units sold to retail channels.
The Cordless MouseMan Optical is a right-handed mouse with a four-button design — two brushed-steel buttons, a scroll wheel and a fourth button located near the thumb. The buttons are programmable depending on the user’s preference.
Logitech worked with Agilent Technologies to develop the 800 DPI (dots-per-inch) optical sensor used on the mouse. That’s twice the resolution of previous Logitech optical mice (and twice the resolution of Apple’s corded Pro Mouse, too). The mouse also sports special reduced power modes that help the batteries last up to three months, according to Logitech.
The USB-based Cordless MouseMan Optical works with Mac OS 8.6 or later, according to Logitech, though the company doesn’t specify OS X support. It carries a suggested retail price of US$69.95 and should be available from leading retailers, catalogers and e-tailers.
