Microsoft's Entertainment and Devices (E&D) Division has launched the Wireless Laser Desktop 5000 in the region, a sleek new keyboard and mouse kit that the firm claims helps deliver a much enhanced Windows Vista user experience. The Laser Desktop 5000 features an ultra-thin wireless keyboard, a high-definition (HD) laser mouse and a raft of new features designed that bring key Windows Vista and Windows Live functionality to users’ fingertips. These features include the Windows Live Call Button, which offers one-touch access to start an instant messaging session or video call (in countries where that is permitted). The Windows Gadget Button on the other hand provides one-touch access to gadgets that display information such as weather, news updates and stock quotes, whilst the Windows Start Button launches Vista’s Start menu and, providing Windows Vista is installed on a user’s PC, he can search his PC or the web direct from there. “The launch of the Wireless Laser Desktop 5000 in the Middle East means that consumers have a chance to experience a level of comfort and functionality that they never before enjoyed while using a keyboard and mouse,” stated Armagan Demir, head of Microsoft’s Entertainment and Devices Division in this region. “This product is loaded with features that are designed keeping specific user requirements in mind and the device is the latest in our growing line of products optimised for Windows Vista,” Demir added. Additional keyboard features include a battery life indicator, zoom tool, My Favorites Hot Keys and further Customizable Hot Keys. The set is priced US $79. Last summer Microsoft confirmed the appointment of Delta Business Products as the authorised distributor for Microsoft’s range of peripheral products in the GCC region.
