About Arc Touch
Microsoft already has presented the Arc Touch Mouse to its users which are quite convenient and the shape is also curved one. But this mouse still lacks in one thing that is its feature of multi touch.

Unique Feature of this New Multi Touch
The Arc touch mouse which is already given by Microsoft in 2008 was designed with an integrated fold out hand support. But this new launch would really bring a revolution as its fold-form factor is really very innovative and comfortable.
Benefits for Windows 7 users
This is apparently good news for the users of Windows 7.This is because a user can take the advantage of multi touch mouse only if they could afford Multi Touch PC’s which are very costly but now those who have Windows 7 PC’s they can also take benefit of multi touch mouse as it would support Windows 7. Now these users doesn’t need to purchase a multi touch expensive mouse from market as officially they would get that by Microsoft itself once it launches this mouse.
Pricing of this Arc Multi Touch
At present, Apple has presented its multi touch mouse already in the market with the name Apple Magic Mouse the cost of which is $70. Though this Microsoft product would be of similar kind like as of Apple Magic Mouse but its support in Windows 7 will help it in boosting its demand. More people would be able to have the features of multi touch in their applications refreshing the platform of Windows Touch. It is expected to be sold under 70$ only and not more than that, almost the same price at which Apple has offered.
