Microsoft has at least three Surface-branded desktop accessories hitting the market soon. Two are keyboards, and one is a mouse. The latter just popped up on the FCC's website confirming our reporting from yesterday.
Taking a close look at the Surface Mouse and you'll be correct to note it bears a striking resemblance to the black Microsoft Designer Mouse already on the market. Microsoft is tweaking its current Designer and Sculpt offerings with a gray coat and some updated tech (especially for the keyboards).
The "new" Surface Mouse features Bluetooth Low Energy compatibility, takes two AAA batteries (included) and it should last up to 12 months.
An announcement for these new Surface accessories could happen as early as this week, but definitely within the month. Also, Microsoft may announce their rumored Surface All-in-One PC, which completes the whole 'Surface and desktop' theme that is occurring here.
There is no word yet on the rumored late-October media event speculated for New York City.
The third, and yet to be revealed accessory is the Surface Keyboard (ergonomic). We have seen photos of this device and can confirm it is a take on the modern Ergonomic Sculpt keyboard, but with the inclusion of a number pad and a gray coat.
When the Surface Mouse goes on sale, it is expected to retail for $29.95.
