    Does anyone know how this Dell BT mouse will work with the PB? It's on sale this week and i'd really like a BT mouse for surfing and watching videos while attached to HDMI.

    THANKS

    Looks like you just have to connect via bluetooth. very simple.

    goto setting/bluetooth on the playbook and search for a new device. Make sure the mouse is ON and usually u have to press a connect button. then is should pair. passcode is usually 1111 or 0000. very slim chance its 1234.

    then when you want to use it, just power it on and it should connect automatically every time after.

    oh yea, and right click is used to control the gestures.

    put the mouse cursor at the gestrue starting point (bottom, sides, corners) and hit rigth click and it will perform the related gesture.

    ^^^Thanks for the tips.

    Just contacted Dell support. They told me that the mouse above is the same as this one from an older post that has been confirmed to work well with the PB: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...-mouse-617155/

    Both are on sale right now for $14 and free shipping so I just need to decide whether to go with the glossy or matte black version.

    @d_source Yes that's the same one as the one I wrote about except yours is black. Works well with both laptop and PB. Glad you were wise enough to search the forums first =)

    just make sure you order the right one, there's another dell BT mouse that looks nearly identical but it is a bit longer. You can tell by the size of the silver line extending out of the top (front) of the scroll wheel. But from your link it looks like the right one

    They were all listed together, the different coloured ones: http://www.redflagdeals.com/in/toron...mice-1399-hot/

    All on sale, and free shipping. I also used paypal's offer to get an extra 5%. I went with the matte one.

    Dells BT travel mouse works great and scrolls on web pages. Something the apple mouse doesn't.
