This is HP’s new Touch-to-Pair Mouse. For just $US40, HP will sell you this chunk of NFC-enabled peripheral, which can be paired with devices with the lightest tap. Sounds great, right? Except how many gadgets come with NFC capabilities?
Off the top of my head, I can only think of — funnily enough — the HP Spectre. There are probably more that I’ve forgotten, and I’m sure you’ll put me straight in the comments, but as far as I can tell this product doesn’t have much of a market.
There is, of course, a small NFC germ itching to get growing, but it will still be some time before NFC on laptops hits the mainstream. So are HP forward-looking or just off the mark with this mouse? [Engadget]
