Ever notice how a normal sized mouse looks absolutely enormous when you set it down next to a 10 inch or smaller netbook? That’s one of the reasons I’ve been using a tiny travel mouse for the past few years — that plus it takes up less space. But the problem with an itty bitty travel mouse is that it’s a bit harder to grip than a full sized model. Swiftpoint’s latest travel mouse has a fix for that.
The company’s new Swiftpoint mouse is a wireless mouse that features a pen-like grip.
You can dock the mouse on the side of your computer with a USB connector, which also charges the mouse. Swiftpoint says that just connecting it for 30 seconds gives the battery enough energy to power the mouse for up to an hour.
It’s nice to see someone try to shakeup the portable input device space. It would be nice if that shakeup also included a reasonable price though. The Swiftpoint mouse sells for $69.95.
