We get the feeling that Newton Peripherals is onto something here. Just weeks after the company issued
a few Bluetooth headsets
designed to be adhered to a number of smartphones, the company is taking its stick-it-to-the-goods approach one step further. The all new MoGo Mouse is engineered to solve that "lame trackpad" problem so often associated with cramped netbook spaces, but the executive leaves a little to be desired.
The MoGo Mouse for Netbooks measures five millimeters thick (0.2"), including the stick-on holster. Put simply, you attach the holster to your netbook lid, and within is a portable mouse that can be used pretty much anywhere. This ensures that you never take your netbook without your mouse, but unfortunately, there's no MoGo Keyboard out yet to solve the "cramped keyboard" issue.
Also unfortunate is the design, which definitely leaves a mark on your machine. If you're okay with that, cool. If not, it might be a deal-breaker. The included mouse is a low-profile device with an 800DPI resolution, Bluetooth 2.0 technology, a range of up to 30 feet, a battery good for eight to ten hours on a full charge, a charge time of 30 minutes and support for Windows XP/Vista along with Mac OS X.
The Bluetooth MoGo Presenter Mouse is available today as part of a $99.00 Netbook kit that includes Newton Peripherals’ MoGo Bluetooth Adapter, a low-profile removable docking connector and charging cable at www.mogostore.com.
