    You think so? I thought it will require new hardware?

    Wrong. It's probably part of the fact the W10 Mobile now supports paired mice over Bluetooth in this build (I did pair it with my Arc Mouse and it used the same pointer). Continuum for phones is still a work in progress, and does require new hardware.

    According to Gabe Aul it is because of the Continuum code. https://twitter.com/GabeAul/status/599228523035762688 It is the same OS so the Code is still in there, even if your Hardware can't work with that. But you are right, you can connect your mouse with your Windows Phone, so maybe Gabe is wrong with that.

    Yes continuum needs new hardware but not new OS and the codes. They are same across all the w10 mobiles. Every w10mobiles will have continuum feature hardwired into the os but it won't work unless the phone has adequate hardware. So the mouse pointer that is there is part of continuum code. and probably due to some bug it is visible even without paring a mouse.

    I think you're getting Continuum confused with the general Windows core, that is common across Windows 10. HID interface support for mouses and such are included in this core, of which every Windows Phone will have running W10. Besides, from an optimisation point of view, why include several hundred lines of irrelevant code that can't even be tested by current users? There would be no point having Continuum coded in for the Insider Preview, because no Insiders can offer feedback on it.

    Tip: If you connect a Bluetooth mouse to the phone, move the cursor all the way to the bottom where you can't see it, and then disconnect the mouse, it'll no longer appear when you press the home and back buttons. The cursor shows up in the last known position before the mouse is disconnected, so just hide it and it will no longer appear.

    it was my understanding that continuum does work on modern hardware, but what requires new hardware is the ability to use dual displays..
