Logitech and Microsoft continue their battle in input devices

Microsoft and Logitech are releasing new mice to appeal to business users and gamers alike. Both have announced two mice each that will be available within the coming months. It seems as though the ongoing mice battle between these two companies has no signs of backing down as each tries to one-up the other.

First up is Microsoft's revamped IntelliMouse. The IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 can track at 9,000 FPS, features a "Precision Bolster" switch between the standard mode and precision mode, and a Gaming Toggle for use in your favorite games (i.e. to switch weapons in an FPS). The wired mouse will be available for $39.95 when it is released in October.

Next up is the Microsoft Habu which was developed in conjunction with Razer. The Habu has a 16-bit data patch and a 2000 DPI laser sensor. To give gamers more control, the side panels of the mouse are interchangeable to accommodate different hand sizes. The mouse also features seven programmable buttons, onboard memory to store up to five game profiles, Teflon coated feet and "GlowPipe" side rails. The Habu will also be available in October for the price of $69.95.

On the Logitech front are the cordless laser MX Revolution (desktops) and VX Revolution (notebooks) mice. Both mice feature a new alloy MicroGear Precision Scroll Wheel which can spin freely for up to seven seconds allowing users to scroll through hundreds of pages at a time. Also of note is One-Touch Search which enables users to select a word or phrase and get its definition with a single click. The MX Revolution and VX Revolution are available now for $99.99 and $79.99 respectively.
