    Hey guys i have an asus transformer and remember reading in my many many searches that i would be able to use a mouse with my tablet, which would make things hella easier when remote desktopping.

    I have found one which i think will suit well as its quite thin, wireless and very portable with my transformer case.
    2.4GHz Rapoo 3500 Ultra Slim USB Wireless Laser Mouse | eBay

    My question is, how easy is it going to be to get that bad boy working on my honeycomb tablet as i doubt its as easy as plug in and away we go.

    Actually, If the tablet supports it, it IS that easy. With my tablet, you can plug it right in and a little cursor pops up.

    I'm not sure about android 3.0 but mouse support is alive and well on 3.1 - haven't tried it on my Xoom yet but I plan to soon ;)


    3.1 is scheduled to roll out to the transformer this summer - in the meantime check out our Sister Site dedicated entirely to the Transformer - http://www.transformerforums.com/ and download the free app in the Android Market

    There is mouse support on my SuperPAD 2.1 so I'm betting that there is on honeycomb.

    I'm not using 3.0 honeymoon yet but the dell streak 7 will soon be getting it. I have a Bluetooth magic mouse and verbatim bt folding keyboard it works great without having to download any apps to make it work. Just pair it using the Bluetooth device setup.

    Not sure this will help anyone in particular but: I was amazed to plug my mouse (and keyboard) into the gTab 10" with roebeet's Bottle of Smoke (HC 3.0 port from the Transformer) and they both worked with no problems. Very cool!

    I have a Logitech MX900 (bluetooth) mouse connected to my Asus TF with 3.1, works fine.

    Have transformer with the dock keyboard - with transformer you would need the keyboard dock to get a usb mouse to work as no usb ports on the tablet itself. The keyboard has a touch pad for scrolling around and shows a mouse icon so am pretty sure that plugging one into a usb port would work fine.
