Microsoft's best budget mouse appears to have a wireless sibling on the way
The budget-friendly Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse appears to have a wireless version on the way.
What you need to know
- Microsoft will release a Bluetooth version of its Ergonomic Mouse, according to a recent filing.
- Images of the Bluetooth Ergonomic Mouse recently passed through Anatel.
- The wired Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse earned solid reviews from us last year.
It appears that Microsoft is launching a Bluetooth version of the Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse. Images of a mouse recently passed through Anatel, which is similar to the FCC but in Brazil. Insiraficha discovered and shared the images earlier this week.
The Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse is a wired mouse that is quite comfortable to use, according to our review from the end of last year. In his review, our senior editor Zac Bowden called it "A budget Surface Precision Mouse."
If the Bluetooth version of the Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse delivers the same experience as its wired sibling without requiring a wire, it should be a solid budget choice.
In addition to the images of the wireless mouse found by Insiraficha, we also got our crack team of expert artists to mock up what the wireless version of the Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse will look like based off of the wired version. The wired version is on the left, while we painstakingly removed the wire on the mockup on the right. If you don't mind having a tail on your mouse, you can grab the Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse now.
Budget precision mouse
The Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse is a cheaper, wired Surface Precision Mouse that still features programmable buttons and the same comfortable design. And for a price less than half the cost of a Precision Mouse, too. This is a great mouse for the price and is incredibly versatile.
