HP has been making its own peripherals for a long time now. I can’t say that I have ever laid eyes on any of its stuff and though it was cool or innovative. That has changed today with HP unveiling the industry’s first WiFi mouse. This mouse doesn’t need a USB port or even Bluetooth to work.
It connects to your notebook or desktop using the WiFi card integrated into the computer. HP promises up to nine months of battery life and the mouse has five buttons that can be customized. The scroll wheel is also a four-way unit that scrolls to the side too.
The WiFi range is up to 30-feet from the computer. The design is ambidextrous for right or left handed users and has rubber side grips. The mouse will land in June and will sell for $49.99. HP also has new Link-5 tech that will allow up to five compatible peripherals use a single USB dongle.
