So far Bluetooth and Wi-Fi have been the dominant wire-free techs used to pair devices together. But NFC is fast taking over as the next logical step in the evolution of wireless tech. Nokia is already offering the goodness of NFC in their mobile phone headsets and earpieces though the technology has not been explored as a viable option by PC manufacturers so far. But HP seems to believe in staying ahead of the competition and has announced the launch of an NFC-enabled mouse that allows users to simply touch-and-pair the peripheral with their PCs.
The awesome mouse can even be used on hard and smooth surfaces like glass and comes with four-way tilt scrolling function. For folks who are not yet convinced that an NFC mouse is particularly suited to them, HP also released three wireless mice- the X4500 and X5500 and X6000.
HP has stated that the yet unnamed NFC-enabled mouse will arrive in the brand’s showrooms and stores in November and will be priced at $39. The X6000 wireless mouse will be priced at $59, the X4500 will be sold for $29 and the X5500 will cost $39. The three wireless mice will hit stores later this month.
Apart from upgrading their mice line, HP has also announced the release of a few wire-free peripherals and accessories including a 1080p HD video shooter, a universal power adapter, a Portable Bluetooth Speaker, the Wireless Elite v2 and the Wireless Classic Desktop Keyboard.
