Three blinding mice

Miss a mouse when you’re using a notebook or laptop? Cherry has just released three mice into the world – all of them wireless – to help anyone on the go work just a little bit easier.


First out of the cage is the Life Nano, a wireless laser mouse, which features a plug-in nano USB receiver – it’s so small in facet that it can stay tidily stored in the laptop when it’s closed. Aimed at the business user, the Life Nano offers 2.4GHz wireless technology up to 5m, which makes it ideal for presentations. Its plug and play set up should make life simpler as well. An energy saving on/off switch aims to save power when it’s not being used, and it is sleek and glossy in its black overcoat. Designed for right-hander, it costs £24.99.

For working on the go, the Passenger is a mini optical house that has a speedy 1000 dpi scanning resolution and a nifty insertable receiver. Wireless, with a range of 1.2m, it also features an intelligent power concept (apparently) to save on battery life. It has a three-button, symmetrical design which is suitable for both lefties and rightist and comes in black with a blue scroll wheel or in a white-and-silver colour scheme. For sale at around £17.99.

And bringing up the rear is an optical wireless mouse called Azuro, which unsurprisingly comes in a dark blue colour. With a range of 10m, it offers usability straight out of the box with plug and play, and offers two scanning resolutions – 500 dpi and 1000 dpi. It also has forward and back buttons for web browsing, and a red LED warns when the battery is getting low. Users can also assign different keys on the mouse to specific functions, using the free Keym@an for Windows software from the Cherry website. The Azuro costs £14.99.

The three mice are available from the likes of Dabs, E-Buyer, and Amazon.
