HP unveils WiFi Mobile Mouse and Link-5 wireless tech to free your USB
We don’t usually go wild for wireless mice, but HP has revealed a new rodent that controls your PC pointer via WiFi that’s piqued our interest. Dubbed the HP WiFi Mobile Mouse, it’s got five programmable buttons and a four-way tilt scroll wheel for nuisance-free navigation, plus a nine-month battery life from dual AAs. In addition to the WiFi wunderkind, HP is rolling out its Link-5 wireless connection technology — similar to Logitech’s Unifying Receiver — with compatible keyboards and mice as well. Link-5 lets you connect up to (surprise, surprise) five devices through a single diminutive USB dongle. So instead of pedestrian peripherals, you can connect something a little more awesome. Vid’s after the break.
