IOGEAR minimizes mice for mobile users
~ introduces tiny USB optical mouse for workers on the move ~

Irvine, CA – March 5, 2002 – IOGEAR has simplified portable computing with
the launch of its miniature USB optical mouse, Mini Mouse.

Designed specifically for the mobile professional, the tiny peripheral is
smaller than a credit card (3.5″ x 1.5″ x 1.75″), providing users with an
easy-to-use, space-saving solution. It provides superior optical sensor
tracks to enable smooth precision movements on any surface. Mini Mouse has
no moving parts to clean and requires no mouse pad. The PC and Mac
compatible mouse is priced at $29.95 (MSRP) and is available immediately
from all major catalog resellers, online resellers and selected retail

“Conducting business while on the move makes it difficult for mobile
workers to use standard, track-ball mice that don’t operate on most
surfaces,” said Miranda Su, director of sales and marketing at IOGEAR, Inc.
“Designed with optical sensors, Mini Mouse is the perfect solution to make
mobile computing simple and hassle-free. With no cleaning required and no
need for a mouse pad, the product is a great portable tool.”

Mini Mouse (GME221) has an ergonomic design for comfortable use and
optically tracks movement 1500 times per second. It is USB 1.1 compliant,
Plug-N-Play and Hot Swappable. The peripheral works with Windows 98, 98SE,
2000, ME and XP operating systems, as well as Mac OS X or later. It comes
equipped with a leather carrying case and the company’s three-year limited
warranty. For further information on Mini Mouse or any IOGEAR products,
