    Is it possible to pair a bluetooth mouse with the lapdock instead of having to only use the touchpad? I swear that I have scene this somewhere before, it would be pretty awesome. Or heck, is a regular USB mouse possible?

    A wireless mouse w/USB dongle works great, picked on up @ OFFICE DEPOT® for $8.00

    As for a BLUETOOTH® wireless mouse,I'm guessing you may need a compatible dongle & even then I'm not sure one way or the other if it'd work.

    I'd try to pair it w/the phone (if the dongle method doesn't work)& then dock it & see if anything happens.

    Regardless of if its docked or not, a bt mouse will pair to the phone. That said it should work. Mine does.

    I use the Microsoft wireless 5 button USB mouse. Great. It doesn't support all the buttons.

    Has anyone found a way to pan or zoom with the built-in touch pad? I carry the mouse with me just for that.

    My Bluetooth Microsoft Presenter mouse works great with my Bionic/Lapdock combo as well.

    What's the advantage of a BT mouse over a Wireless USB mouse, like I use?

    Thanks
