Announcing the Contour Mouse Optical in Rubberized, Textured Black

Contour Design, Inc., the World's Foremost Maker of Computer Input Devices of the Highest Quality and Ergonomic Integrity, Announces the First Shipments of Its Enhanced Optical Contour Mouse

WINDHAM, NH--(Marketwire - October 21, 2008) - Today, Contour Design, Inc. began shipping the latest version of its flagship product, the Contour, sometimes called the "PerFit" -- for PERfect FIT -- Mouse.

This product is known as the Contour Mouse, Optical (or CMO with the side scroll wheel or CMO5 without the scroll wheel).

The patented CMO and CMO5 units:

-- Have durable, rubberized surfaces for easier gripping;
-- Are black and silver to complement the décor of most modern
   computer desktops; and
-- Retain the proven design of the molded-to-fit-the-hand-perfectly
   contoured shape, with elongated buttons, for which the Contour
   Mouse is internationally known, and for which it has received
   multiple awards for exceptional  ergonomic integrity and quality.

Like the multiple award-winning PMOs and PMO5s before them, the CMOs and CMO5s will be available in three (3) left-handed and four (4) right-handed sizes.

Contour has delivered several hundred thousand of this family of mice since its inception nearly fifteen (15) years ago. The testimonials are many and lavish in their praise for this product -- which has helped so many computer users prevent or remediate pain and discomfort from repetitive strain injuries (RSI).
