Engadget was tipped of another image on the @msfthardware’s twitpic page. A Magic Trackpad alternative from Microsoft Hardware was among the first thoughts. Tom Warren at Neowin later confirmed that the device shown was Microsoft’ Arc Touch Mouse and that the first release might not support multi-touch. Bummer!
