Logitech Nano mouse clips onto your laptop like a lamprey

Logitech’s new “V550 Nano Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks” looks like pretty standard fare — two buttons plus a scroll wheel, long battery life, proprietary (but tiny) wireless USB dongle — but it does have one, somewhat goofy feature: a small sticker with a metal nub to be stuck on the side of your laptop, onto which the mouse can be hooked and carried around the house or office. I imagine that serves a very small niche of users, but they are now served nonetheless.

It’s available for $60.

    Reminds me of the MoGo mice, which reside and charge in your pc card slot on your laptop:

    I’d love to see something similar for bluetooth earpieces and phones, maybe some sort of nesting or docking or chaining arrangement that would allow you to stash your earpiece unobtrusively with your phone, and possibly to charge at the same time as your phone charges.

    I don’t know about the clip part, but the very tiny usb dongle is pretty sweet. It fits right inside the back of the mouse for storage, and automatically turns the mouse off when you put the dongle back.

    Believe me; if you’ve used the hyperfast scrolling setup from Logitech, you wouldn’t classify this as standard fare. It’s the best thing going for business users today. Not clear if this uses the clutching mechanism of the desktop mouse or makes you manually switch between hyperfast and normal, unfortunately.
