The Wedge is portable, sleek, stylish, and designed for use with a Windows 8 tablet or laptop. Like Microsoft's other touch mice, the Wedge is something of a hybrid, combining touch gestures with a traditional mouse. It also includes Microsoft's BlueTrack technology, which means it'll work on just about any surface, including your couch or carpet. However, if you're not using Windows 8 -- or if you miss the tactile feel of a conventional scroll wheel -- the Wedge may not be for you.

Executives dying for an ultraportable mouse to go with their Windows 8 or Android tablet will find a beautiful companion in the Wedge Touch Mouse, but it's a lot to pay for a pretty basic set of functions.

The Microsoft Mobile Touch Mouse is tiny and lets you take Windows 8-friendly four-way scrolling anywhere.

On the downside, the right click problem caused us some heartache from time to time, and the scrolling can sometimes be a little temperamental. But for the most part, this tiny little rodent does an amazing job - one of the best Microsoft Touch Mouses we've tried.

It's not cheap, or big. And on first site the Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse looks as though it wouldn't be comfortable for long-term use. But like Windows 8 itself, we found it surprisingly comfortable and efficient to use. It's well built, and stylish. And it is the best way to mouse around Windows...

The mouse would be too small to use comfortably for long periods, but after a few days of sustained use, it proved to be much more comfortable than we thought, and easy to sling into a bag with a laptop or tablet.

... we had some serious reservations when we first saw the design, but it's actually not that bad at all if you want a light mouse to quickly work on your tablet when a touchscreen won't do.

Microsoft’s Wedge Touch Mouse is all potential with no actualization. It has all the potential of a smartly built touch-enabled mouse, with easy to use swipe or other touch gesture functions, but nothing to actually make prospective buyers interested in purchasing one.

For $70, this is no cheap mouse, and it's not going to be worth it for a non-Windows 8 user. Once you're upgraded your OS, however (or if your tablet uses Windows 8), it's worth taking a look at if aesthetics and extreme portability are important to you.

The drivers for this mouse suck. Maybe there's an issue with BlueTooth in general on my laptop as this is the first bluetooth mouse I've tried, but I've found that both the mouse as well as the drivers on my laptop have crashed at times and needed a reboot. With the mouse, this means opening...

The WORST mouse that I ever had. Too many issues to be listed, including random failure of scroll function, random failure of movement, sudden out of battery when battery is actually fine, inconsistent scroll speed across (or even within!) applications, random sticky movement... To sum up, this...
