New Multi-Touch Mouse from Microsoft

Nothing official from Microsoft yet, but word is that they are working on a multi-touch version of their arc mouse to work with Windows 7 built in features. I have been waiting for something to make it a worthwhile feature. I like the touchscreen monitors, but couldn’t own one because I can’t stand fingerprints on my monitor. 🙂

If this product does exist, what can we expect from it? Windows 7 does have multitouch functionality built right in, but most consumers don’t have the hardware to take advantage of it. Even if the Arc Touch is just a PC clone of the Apple Magic Mouse, it will allow PC users a new set of experiences without buying an expensive multitouch PC.
