Upto 30% off on mouse, keyboard and webcams.

Press release:
Microsoft Hardware today announced a number of offers will be available on its top-selling range products at this year’s GITEX technology week.

The products – ranging from web cams, mice and keyboards – will be sold by various retailers at GITEX Shopper 2011, scheduled to take place between October 8 and 15 at the Airport Expo Dubai.

Merthan Kaleli, Retail Sales & Marketing Lead, Microsoft Gulf said: “As we have witnessed in previous years, Microsoft Hardware products are very popular with consumers during GITEX shopper events, and we are very excited to announce the new range of innovative accessories available this year.

“Thanks to the number of deals available, we are certain there will be something to suit every consumer’s needs. We look forward to GITEX 2011.”

Research has shown that business professionals spend an average of six hours per day* working at a computer, using their mouse and keyboard – without accounting for the leisure time spent editing photos or just surfing the Internet.

Microsoft’s range of mice and keyboards are packed with style, comfort and quality to enhance the way users work or play. With the company developing hardware for over 25 years, Microsoft ensures that all hardware products undergo 24 separate tests before being released on the market – ensuring they’re made to deliver, last and work seamlessly with the Microsoft products individuals already use.

Two of Microsoft’s most popular mice, the ARC Touch Mouse and Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 will be available at GITEX Shopper 2011, priced at Dh229 (originally Dh299) and Dh89 (Dh119) respectively. Meanwhile, top-selling keyboard/mouse combo: the Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 will be priced at Dh229 instead of (Dh319). Finally, the ARC Keyboard will cost Dh189 instead of Dh249.

Additionally, thanks to the cosmopolitan nature of the UAE, there is a high demand for good quality web cam and headset products to be used during communication via the Internet. As a result, Microsoft Hardware will be selling its LifeChat LX-3000, LifeCam HD-5000, and LifeCam Studio for Dh99, Dh149, and Dh279 respectively (originally Dh135, Dh199 and Dh375).

It is worth noting that the LifeCam HD-5000 uses TrueColor Technology to offer a 720p HD sensor for wide-screen video recording and Auto Focus.

Microsoft Gulf will also be exhibiting at this year’s GITEX, taking place between October 9 and 13 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, where it will be showcasing and demonstrating a wide range of products and solutions, including from the Microsoft Hardware range.
