Review: Microsoft Touch Mouse for Windows 7

Microsoft Touch Mouse is the newest device created and developed by Microsoft exclusively for Windows 7. Aside from the usual functions you can do with your typical computer mouse, this amazing product features seven (7) natural gestures which MS (Microsoft) says as “the most fluid way to navigate Windows 7”. By quickly responding to gestures, it speeds up your daily tasks like scrolling, panning, paging forward and backward, docking, minimizing/maximizing, showing desktop, and many more.
Expected to be available to the market on May 2011, Microsoft Touch Mouse for Windows 7 will be Microsoft’s counterpart to Apple’s Magic Mouse.

·         Two Fingers lets you manage multiple windows by maximizing, minimizing, restoring, and snapping them side-by-side.
