In addition, IOGEAR will demonstrate its Bluetooth Mini Mouse, a small, lightweight device that allows computing of up to 66 feet from the computer. The mouse provides great flexibility for mobile workers as it works with any Bluetooth-enabled system that supports the HID (Human Interface Device) system. Ideal for users in need of precision computing, the device offers 800-dpi resolution, twice the accuracy of standard mice. IOGEAR’s Bluetooth headset allows consumers hands free use of Bluetooth 1.1 compatible cell phones. The product comes with an ear hook and volume control for comfortable use and secure wearing.
