Microsoft has unveiled it’s Touch Mouse,for Windows 7,which  allows you to click, flick, scroll and swipe easily without the need for any buttons.This device has brought gesture control to even those who don’t have a touchscreen.The mouse is available for pre order and would be available by May 2011,for $80.It  supports different multi touch gestures,few of gestures shown in the video are pinch to zoom,flicks,panning.It also packs Microsoft’s BlueTrack technology, which means that it could work on carpets, wood, etc.The design looks sexy,and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

Recipe to make an iTouch competitor

iPod touch is enjoying tremendous popularity,mainly because the market has very few competitors to actually compete with it.But it’ll surely lose the market share once an Android based multimedia device steps in this segment.And that’s what I am expecting from Galaxy Player.Here’s an recipe to make itouch lose the dominance which it has been enjoying for such a long time.

Take the most popular OS i.e. Android (2.2 or 2.3),spice it up with App Market,dual cameras,good body design,32/64 GB storage options,responsive capacitive touchscreen and a good display.(The last 2 points are damn important if the device wants to compete with iTouch.

I have high hopes from Galaxy Player. !
