Does anyone have any updates on Bluetooth mice for OS X? (Besides Apple's mouse...)

Coming from the PC world, I am partial to mice with 2 (or more) buttons, and a scroll-wheel. I (foolishly, in hindsight...maybe my screen name should be Epimetheus) bought the Logitech MX900, in the hope they would provide OS X drivers. I gave up a few months ago, and just went with Microsoft's USB RF mouse. But I would really like to cut the USB cord.

Has anyone bought RadTech's Bluetooth mouse?

Oh, I know the MX900 will work with OS X...I bought one.

It's just the buttons are not programmable (except for Expose) and the cursor tracking speed is slower than mice that have dedicated drivers (such as Microsoft's).

Radtech's BT mouse is just a rebrand of the Bluetake BT-500 mouse, which has gotten overall poor reviews. However, it will work with your computer just fine.

I would take a look at MacAlly's BT Mouse Jr. I have heard some good things about it. Then again, most people are still waiting for the MacMice BT Mouse (won't ship till fall).
