Considering some of you out there are probably heading back to school around this time (or if you're already there), you might be looking for a new electronic toy to buy. And hey, if you can write it off as a school-related purchase, why not, right? That's what Genius is hoping to rope you in with, as they've just announced their new Navigator 905BT wireless mouse, featuring Bluetooth technology inside.
The wireless mouse is capable of connecting (without wires!) to any PC or Mac, and Genius says it's instantly, so that's pretty impressive. If you do decide to connect to your computer courtesy of the Bluetooth EDR 2.0 technology, then you'll be happy to know you can go up to 10m from your PC or Mac and still have a functioning device. And, if you don't happen to have any Bluetooth connectivity on your PC or Mac, then you can plug in the Stick-N-Go mount to your USB port, and still utilize that wireless goodness.
Interestingly enough, because when we think mouse peripherals, we also think anti-virus software, Genius is including a 60-day free trial of Norton Symantec anti-virus software, which will come on a CD. You have two color choices: ruby red or cold silver, and it will retail for $32.99. Check out the full press release below for all the extra juicy details.
