what is Windows Touch Tub?

I happened to learn about a new type of mouse which says "windows touch tub" - it looks like it's ideal for Win 8. As my note PC has no touch screen although it has Win 8, I'm a bit interested in it, if it means that the mouse enables me to use the screen as if it is a touch screen.

Does anybody know more about it?

Re: what is Windows Touch Tub?

Are you sure 'tub' is correct? There is no reference to this on Google

But I would guess it is an external touch pad, like the one you get on a laptop.

tab*
for me tub and tab is more or less same ... no!? a fresh surprise

I looked into it a bit more since then and found microsoft introduced a new type of mouse series this month. For example, Sculpt Comfort Mouse H3S-00007. The brief explanation i read there is not informative enough for me, though.
I wonder when Microsoft enters into a new business bath tub.

This should have all the information you need -

It's just a mouse with a Windows 8 'Start' button

Thanks for this, Ian. It looks like we can open/change start page or applis instantly. A little bit interesting.
