I just stumbled across this mouse, has anyone seen it, or is it new?

Ok, this is the microsoft Habu, it's a razer on the inside, with a touch of microsofts ergonomics. I thought i heard rumors about a partership between the two. Looks like i may buy this, since newegg just sold out of blue copperheads.

I really want a Habu if it is an ergonomic copperhead. In fact I just might buy it.

EDIT:
Just looked up some reviews. The Habu is a copperhead with microsoft ergonomics and it has a bunch of nifty features the copperhead dosnt have. This is a killer mouse. Just ordered mine.

Yeah, i am on the cutting edge as far as CPU's go, although i feel a little behind in the graphics department(but i can't complain since i can play FEAR combat on max anyway) But i haven't really ever had the best of the best/ the next big thing. Hopefully gonna order my mouse and pad tonight, so if anyone else has some last minute suggestions you better get em in now.

For the pad get an X-Ray Thunder 8 or Thunder 9 (rough model) if you need something bigger.

I don't have a lot of room, im going for the cyber snipa pad, it's just about the biggest i can fit, it's like 9 by 14. Im looking at them now, they look like good competition for that cyber snipa pad. Do you own one of these? Only problem is i don't know wether to get smooth or rough.
