Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse

 

The Microsoft Mobile Touch Mouse is tiny and lets you take Windows 8-friendly four-way scrolling anywhere.

Tiny innovative design. Vertical and horizontal scrolling is ideal for Windows 8. Easy Bluetooth connectivity.

Awkward form factor.

Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse and Mobile Keyboard review

 

When Microsoft first announced the Wedge Touch mouse for Windows 8, plenty of people wondered whether the blunt, flipper-shaped device was actually practical. Its accompanying keyboard, meanwhile,...

Innovative form factor that actually works ; Tiny and light ; Surprisingly comfortable

No Windows 8 gesture support ; Relatively pricey ; Scratches easily

The new design is great, but Microsoft could have taken it further

Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse (Black) review

 

If you believe what you read about Windows 8 and touch, the mouse will be dead in October. And yet, I'm here to tell you that that's premature...for now. Microsoft, in fact, is making its own set of touch mice in advance of Windows 8's formal launch....

The Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse has an elegant, extremely compact, and surprisingly usable design, and works as well as advertised.

Touch gestures are limited to basic one-finger four-way scrolling, and a $70 price tag feels too lofty.

Executives dying for an ultraportable mouse to go with their Windows 8 or Android tablet will find a beautiful companion in the Wedge Touch Mouse, but it's a lot to pay for a pretty basic set of functions.

Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse Review and Ratings

 

For a tiny Bluetooth mouse, the Wedge Touch delivers responsive performance and a sleek design. But Windows 8 users should note there's no gesture support, and some will find the lack of a palm rest uncomfortable.

Pocketable size ; Appealing industrial design ; BlueTrack sensor registers well on most surfaces

No gesture support beyond scrolling ; Shape is best suited to smaller hands ; Battery life could be better

If you're in the market for a Bluetooth mouse that won't take up much space in your bag and handles basic cursor control well, the Wedge Touch Mouse is a solid choice that's sure to snag an second glance or start a conversation now and then for its...

Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse review

 

A unique design for a mouse - but is that a good thing?

Responsive ; Portable ; Works well with Windows 8 ; Easy to connect

Pricey ; Not for desktop PCs

The Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse is certainly not going to be to everyone's taste, and we had some serious reservations when we first saw the design, but it's actually not that bad at all if you want a light mouse to quickly work on your tablet when a...

Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse review

 

Microsoft's Wedge Touch Mouse is a tiny Bluetooth mouse designed specifically to work with Windows 8. We tested the Wedge Touch Mouse with a Samsung Series 7 tablet running Windows 8 Pro, alongside the Wedge Mobile Keyboard.

It's not cheap, or big. And on first site the Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse looks as though it wouldn't be comfortable for long-term use. But like Windows 8 itself, we found it surprisingly comfortable and efficient to use. It's well built, and stylish....

Microsoft Lync 2010 review

 

Every once in a very long while, I get to review a product that strikes me as a stepping stone toward the future. Microsoft Lync 2010 combines instant messaging, VoIP calling, live meetings, and videoconferencing, but it's more than the sum of these...

Don't even think about shopping for a new enterprise phone system without adding Lync to the list of candidates. Take a good hard look, and encourage your organisation to download the trial and take it for a ride. This is the first UC system I've...
