    Maybe it's coming out next Tuesday at the mysterious event. Follow the instruction at the bottom of the quoted text and it will lead you to the ad. I was able to do it myself, so it is there.

    I know, it's either a very retarded typo, or they got info of a BT mouse but they got no pictures. Or maybe the wire is an antenna... ha! :p

    Yeah, that can't be Bluetooth. It has a wire coming out of it. :p Isn't the Mighty Mouse $49.99? So it's a typo AND a misleadng advertisement.

    (unless there is something Apple is not telling us)

    It says $60 after saving $20, but that's Canadian dollars. 80CA$ it's almost 70US$

    I believe the Apple Pro Bluetooth is that price.

    ...and it doesn't have a long antennae "thingy" on it. :D

    I think that it was just a typo but I wish that they would come out with a bluetooth version because I would buy one.

    Hmm, thats very intriguing. I've been holding off on purchasing a mouse too, mostly because I cannot find a good BT mouse. Apple is going to need more than one or two big announcements at the media event, so maybe this is part of the "filler" material or small announcements as was Madonna and Harry Potter last time. Would be very sweet.

    It's definitely a mistake. If you follow the "more info & stock availability" link on the right side of the flyer page, the mouse turns out to be MA086LL/A (and the "web code" 10065653 matches the flyer page). MA086LL/A is the USB Mighty Mouse.

    The Canadian list price for Mighty Mouse (at the Apple store) is $65.00 and they're selling it for $60. The $79.99 "regular price" advertised at Best Buy looks like their usual sleazy tactics to inflate the real discount.

    You'll notice that they did the same thing with the Bluetooth keyboard. Best Buy have it on sale for $59.99, and claim a "regular price" of $79.99, but the regular price at the Apple Store for Canada is $69.00.
