Microsoft Wedge Two Finger Wireless Mouse

Wedge Touch Mouse - Overview

When using mobile computers you will often find yourself struggling to navigate the device with a built-in trackpad and wished for having a mouse in your bag when working off-site. However, due to the lack of space and convenience, we often leave a mouse at home. For once, regular mice are too big and others usually are too flimsy to use.

Detailed Review

Wedge Mouse - Ultimate Portability

With its very unique design, the Microsoft wedge Touch Mouse offers a very small form factor, while offering flexibility in usage and very long battery life. Added features like gestures, native Bluetooth support, and others make productivity time within an office environment become a breeze

Wedge Mouse - The Design

Microsoft has gone a very different route with this tiny mouse, chopping off the entire back of what is known as a traditional mouse design. The mouse is very minimal but styled all the way through. As for buttons, there are only left and right-click buttons as a rocker switch. The entire surface is touch-sensitive and can be used for scrolling gestures. the downward slope allows for a second, at first very inconvenient finger placement with which we can maneuver the mouse with resting two fingers on top of the surface without the need of a pinch grip.

The design as stripped down as it allows for the two hand positions or grip positions and is probably one of the smallest mice you can throw in your laptop bag without getting laughed at in meetings. A very stylish add-on is the fancy blue LED light used for tracking the position.

On the bottom side, there is a simple on/off switch and another switch which opens up the cleverly integrated battery compartment.

Wedge Mouse - Usage

I had no issues whatsoever connecting the mouse via Bluetooth. It is very intuitive, just hold down the power button for 2-5 seconds, have your computer search for the device, connect, ready to use.

Once connected, the mouse performs how it should be and within its (limited) range of functions: left-click, right-click, touch scroll.

Touch scroll works both ways, vertically and horizontally, which is super great to navigate some websites and large spreadsheets.

A little minus is the lack of additional touch gestures. Except for the scrolling, the Microsoft Wedge Mouse does not offer any other features.

Best Use Case / Verdict

The smalle Wedge makes a sweet little assistant to go with you on travels and also might be an excellent companion to the Microsoft Wedge Keyboard to those who do not like using a laptop’s trackpad and keyboard or are using a surface tablet.

The Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse is the perfect portable mouse for business people to take with them into meetings without feeling awkward for bringing a regular mouse with poor design.
