    Touchpad is not good in utility.Going to buy a iGo think outside bluetooth mouse,could that mouse be used with Redfly smoothly?

    It's pity that C8N cann't touch screen.....

    I don't see why not. The computer see's the USB dongle as a USB mouse, the mouse/dongle does all the bluetooth work.

    The Redfly can only use USB mice, so you'll be making a Bluetooth connection between the mouse and your Windows Mobile smartphone.

    The mouse should still work and appear on the Redfly's screen, but be sure and download and install the mouse driver on your smartphone.

    Want to simplfy things? Just get a small travel USB mouse. It will be less expensive, too, and you won't have to worry about batteries.

    Ed:

    I think what he's looking at is something like:

    Where you just plug in the receiver, and the wireless part is handled by the receiver (not the phone/redfly).


    Now if he meant a true bluetooth mouse (no receiver), then yes, you are absolutely correct. :)

    I had some interference with the Redfly mousepointer and the blueinput (formerly bluemouse) program mouse pointer. I love bluetooth mice and used to be a heavy user but I'd agree that a usb mouse would be alot more of a sure thing, cheaper, availible with more variety an you wouldnt have to use batteries. The Redfly usb is the best windows moble usb. Any usb pluginplay mouse I tried worked.

    He (she?) specifically mentioned the iGo/ThinkOutside Bluetooth mouse, which makes a direct connection to your WM smartphone without a dongle.

    But the ones that use a dongle are a good option, too. I used one with my Redfly until I got tired of worrying about batteries.

    This is the mouse I use:

    It has a receiver that's so small you can just leave it connected to the RedFly all the time, even when the RedFly is in a case.
