HP WiFi Mobile Mouse launches, no USB port necessary

  • by
It’s a universal truth that USB ports are always in short supply. This is especially true of laptops, which research shows is what more and more people are turning to as a desktop replacement. HP has clearly noticed the problem, as its new mouse comes replete with a world-first tech to help free up an extra USB terminal. This is the WiFi Mobile Mouse.

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?
