Microsoft Arc Touch mouse leaked in Germany?
Reports of a new Microsoft Arc mouse leaked around the Web.
Ever-handy with Google Translate, Engadget has a story from German tech site Winfuture.de regarding a seemingly likely leak of a new Microsoft Arc Touch mouse. Winfuture cites German retailer Notebooksbilliger as the originating source by way of a premature listing on its site, although Engadget and others have been tracking rumors of the mouse for the past few months.
The product shots, which Winfuture seems to have grabbed from Notesbookbilliger before the retailer removed the listing, indicate a core design not entirely unlike Microsoft's original

Reports on pricing and timing for the mouse vary. Winfuture reports a 69.99 Euro price tag with a ship date of 5 to 10 business days. A cached listing at Amazon Canada lists the Arc Mouse Touch for $79 Canadian, and lists a release date of October 7.
Microsoft hasn't responded to our requests for comment, but Engadget has reported on twitpics from Microsoft Hardware's official twitter account, and the shots match the leaked images pulled from Notebooksbilliger. All signs suggest we'll see more of this product in an official capacity before too long.
