As the name suggests, the mouse utilises your home or office’s WiFi network. The one-time only installation involves hooking the wireless wonder up to the Wireless grid, whereupon your computer should be able to recognise it. This means that there’s no need for a Bluetooth receiver, thus freeing up an extra USB port. HP claims that the mouse disconnects from the network when not in use, and reconnects instantly whenever needed. Clever stuff.
The battery life is said to be 9 months, although HP is remaining quiet on exactly how much usage that is. What we do know is that it features 5 customisable buttons, will retail for around £30 and launch in June. Is this the future of wireless accessories?
