As TechSpot's PC peripherals reviewer for nearly three years, it's safe to say that I'm pretty well-versed when it comes to pointing devices. Most of the mice that have crawled across my desk have been higher-end models, both wired and wireless, and just recently I also examined three mobile touch-sensitive mice.
Two dozen mice later, today I'll be looking at something completely different than anything else I've used to date. HP's new Wi-Fi Mobile Mouse cuts the cord and eliminates the need for a USB dongle or Bluetooth radio. It also goes without saying that your computer needs a wireless card. It may seem obvious, but most users won’t be able to use this mouse on a desktop since the average PC isn’t equipped with a Wi-Fi adapter.
This small pointer connects to your notebook's wireless connection with a proclaimed 9-month battery life. The HP Wi-Fi mouse only works on Windows 7 PCs, so Mac users and those on previous versions of Windows are out of luck.
