New mice and keyboards are on the way, and are specifically designed for mobile and for Windows 8, Microsoft announced today.

In the coming weeks and months, the company will introduce two new Bluetooth-enabled keyboards and mice to the market – the Wedge Touch Mouse, the Wedge Mobile Keyboard, the Sculpt Touch Mouse, and the Sculpt Mobile Keyboard. On October 26, the general availability date of the new Windows 8 operating system, Microsoft will also release updated Windows 8 gestures for the Microsoft Touch Mouse.

The ultrathin Sculpt Mobile Keyboard looks great at home or on the go, and its Comfort Curve design encourages natural wrist posture with a slight, six-degree curve. Windows 8 Hot Keys let you quickly search, share or access your devices, settings and Windows Start screen with the tap of a finger. Connecting to any computer enabled with Bluetooth is easy, with no transceiver required. And you'll enjoy up to 10 months of battery life with an on/off switch that conserves battery power and a two-color battery life indicator that warns you when it’s time to switch batteries.Microsoft Sculpt Mobile Keyboard: The ultrathin Sculpt Mobile Keyboard looks great at home or on the go, and its Comfort Curve design encourages natural wrist posture with a slight, six-degree curve.
