Bluetooth Mighty Mouse
FCC documents have surfaced today depicting a Bluetooth version of Apple's Mighty Mouse. The new device is codenamed "M6," and appears to be a regular Mighty Mouse without a cord. Internal photographs reveal the inclusion of two non-rechargeable AA batteries to power the accessory rather than a rechargeable integrated cell or other such solution. The documents also reveal that the mouse will have an off switch much like that found on the current Apple Wireless Mouse, and makes use of software similar to that used to set up the current Mighty Mouse; with the addition of mouse renaming (Bluetooth). The battery level indicator is located in system preferences -- there are no apparent indicators on the physical mouse.
