More Apple Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Details
The most recent builds of Panther reveal more details on the upcoming Apple Wireless Mouse and Apple Wireless Keyboard.
The help files in Panther provide the following description of the new accessories:
The Apple Wireless Keyboard and Mouse uses Bluetooth to communicate with your Mac without wires, and gives you a new level of freedom to use them where you want. With a wireless keyboard and mouse, you can sit back and relax while you type and click through your work.
More details are listed in the Help Tips and Tricks (screenshot) for the new Apple accessories:
- The KB and Mouse come with AA batteries included.
- If you won't be using them for an extended period of time, you can turn them off with the on/off switch on the bottom (of each)
- Don't set up one computer to use more than one mouse and keyboard
- When using some external D-Link USB Bluetooth modules, keys may stick if you type too quickly and the keyboard may lose the connection. It will reconnect automatically when you slow or stop typing.
- Wireless KB/Mouse are not usable while in 'Single User Mode'.
There are no indications that these peripherals will offer recharging of the batteries, and in fact, having a spare set of AA's are recommended.
Previous screenshots confirmed the existance of these upcoming Apple devices.
In a related discovery, a recent blurb from MacBidouille revealed Low Battery warning error messages (for the Wireless Mouse/Keyboard) that is built into the currently shipping Mac OS X 10.2.7.
