Razer's 'Diamondback' gets 3G bite

Infrared sensor for ambidextrous gaming mouse.

Even those of us at Crave who aren't huge gamers discovered long ago that we would lust after just about any design to come out of Razer's equipment labs. And though it's difficult to get us worked up over a mouse these days, but the company has managed to accomplish that too, once again.

Razer just outfitted its ambidextrous "Diamondback" gaming mouse with a 3G infrared sensor, a technology that was first embedded in its "DeathAdder" model. Available next month for $60, the 1800-dpi Diamondback will be available in "Frost Blue," "Earth Green" and "Flame Red." And along with its seven programmable buttons and other features, it will also get a new rubberized finish to help combat SPS (Sweaty Palm Syndrome).
