HP Announced First NFC-Enabled Mouse
HP has introduced the Touch to Pair Mouse, the first wireless mouse technology to integrate Near field communication (NFC).
The new HP wireless mouse will make your life easier, provided you have a computer or tablet equipped with NFC technology. HP offers some new features with Windows 8, but this functionality is now mainly restricted to smartphones and possibly touch pads.
Note that this mouse can be configured by connecting more traditionally in Bluetooth and setting it manually. In fact, this accessory can be interesting for those who wish to invest soon in a Bluetooth mouse while preparing to turn to the NFC technology. It will be available commercially at a price of $39 from November.
This is not the only mouse that HP announced this week: the company has also unveiled the "X6000" which has a wheel for scrolling in four directions, and a sensor for use on all surfaces such as glass. It will be marketed in late September at $59, while entry-level models, the X4500 and wireless mouse 5500, will be proposed at rates of 29 and 39 dollars.
