More details have emerged surrounding Microsoft's new optical mouse format, reportedly called 'Blue Track'.

Several sites, including Engadget have pictures from Amazon's German site, which show a mouse – the Microsoft Explorer Mini Mouse – which more tellingly than anything else, features the logo Microsoft was using on its teaser site.

The mouse, which has a blue LED track running around the edge, combined with a wide-angle lens, is said to work on more surfaces, more accurately, than either laser or optical mice.

Currently, only portable mice have been unveiled but there appears to be no reason why the technology won't make its way over to larger desk mice in the near future.
