Microsoft gearing up to launch modern take on the IntelliMouse

Microsoft already took the wraps off of a new Surface Precision mouse, but it looks like it has a mouse of another variety up its sleeve as well. As spotted on the Surface accessories page by Twitter user Olly Cripps (via The Verge), Microsoft has listed a new take on the classic IntelliMouse is "coming soon."

Microsoft is calling the new mouse the Microsoft Classic IntelliMouse, and, other than being listed as coming soon with a short description, there's very little other information available. From Microsoft:

Inspired by the Microsoft Intellimouse 3.0, the new Microsoft Classic IntelliMouse has exceptional tracking and the firm scroll wheel that fans loved about the original. Tracking is now even more precise with a DPI range up to 3200.

The IntelliMouse line had its fans, but, as The Verge notes, the IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 was discontinued more than five years ago. There's no word on a release date or price just yet, but hopefully, Microsoft will have updates on both soon.
