The Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse is a compact mouse that connects to both desktops and laptops via Bluetooth. It uses BlueTrack Technology so it works on virtually any surface.
With a minimalistic approach – the box comes with just the mouse, an AA battery and some simple instructions – the mouse is about half the size of a regular one and shaped much like a doorstop. It features a comfortable soft matte finish and 4-way touch scrolling.
Opening the Wedge Touch battery compartment is easy. Since the mouse is powered by only one AA battery, it is incredibly lightweight.
