Technology solutions giant Microsoft has introduced new Windows 8-reach products in Malaysia to help people work more easily, it said.
Microsoft Malaysia consumer channels group director Sunny Ooi said beginning with Microsoft Mouse, the Microsoft Hardware Group has designed its hardware to specifically work well with new features in the company's new operating system Windows 8.
Ooi said the new lineup of mice and keyboards include Bluetooth connectivity, BlueTrack Technology for tracking on most surfaces, and specific functionality that gives customers a fast and fluid way to navigate in their world with Windows 8.
"The newly launched Microsoft Hardware devices are designed to be 'better together' with Windows 8," he said. "Microsoft understands the needs of today's fast paced society and as such, has combined mobility, practicality, comfort and style into its latest Hardware range. From desktop and notebook to ultrabook and tablet PCs, Microsoft's newest accessories are the perfect companion for Windows."
Ooi said that the launch of new integrated software was a calculated move, not only in celebrating the impending launch of Windows 8, but also to celebrate its presence in Malaysia for the past 20 years. The new products include Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse, Wedge Mobile Keyboard, Sculpt Touch Mouse, Sculpt Comfort Keyboard, and the Microsoft Touch Mouse, which features updated gesture settings available under Windows 8.
"In conjunction with Windows 8 and Microsoft Malaysia's 20th Anniversary, a promotion offering 30 percent off the retail price of existing Hardware devices [not the new devices listed above] will be available from October 2012 as part of Microsoft's commitment to inspire digital lifestyles and transform the way Malaysians improve their lives through technology experiences," he added.
