HP X7000 Wi-Fi Touch Mouse has dedicated Facebook button

By on November 15, 2011, 1:00 PM

HP has quietly launched their X7000 Wi-Fi Touch Mouse, combining wireless connectivity and touch-sensitive technology into a slick looking pointer. The unique curved shape which arcs to the right, however, means left-handed users need not apply.

We looked at HP’s Wi-Fi Mobile Mouse earlier this year and despite a poor click zone on the primary left and right click buttons, the mouse worked flawlessly. HP has brought that same Wi-Fi technology to the X7000 which means that instead of pairing it with a Bluetooth adapter or a USB dongle, the mouse connects directly to your notebook’s wireless connection.

Additionally the X7000 features a touch-sensitive strip not found on the mobile mouse. This looks similar to the strip found on Microsoft’s Explorer Touch Mouse in that you can speed through web pages with the flick of your finger.

Other technical specifications include an adjustable laser sensor that tops out at 1600 CPI, six programmable buttons (one dedicated button to upload to Facebook), rubber side grip, Teflon feet and nine months of battery life. Do note that you will need a machine running Windows 7 to use the X7000.

Product dimensions of 4.86-inches (L) x 3.52-inches (W) x 1.83-inches (H) indicate this is a full-size desktop-style mouse, something to consider if you were hoping for a slimmer addition to your travel bag. Of course, the mouse could still be used with a traditional desktop, provided you have a wireless card installed or your motherboard supports this feature natively.

HP’s X7000 is available now for $59.99 through the company’s online store.

Because clicking a button on screen is just soooo much work?

Why is it referred to as a unique shape? This mouse is an exaggerated copy of Logitech's VX Revolution which has been around for years.

A button that instantly kills facebook if it should happen to appear? No...? Something else?
