    I had a question for people with the Logitech VX Nano wireless mouse. It says it uses a dongle with 2.4 GHz cordless technology. I believe that bluetooth is 2.4 GHz, but I don't know if they are the same...

    My question is, can you use the VX nano without the dongle on your MBP using its built in bluetooth?

    Thanks!

    I believe they're going to make a Bluetooth variant of one of those mice. I can't find the page on it though. I've read a lot of articles that complain why isn't is already Bluetooth.

    2.4 GHz RF != Bluetooth

    I used to have a different mouse with the same type of dongle. I wasn't able to get it to work with bluetooth. I ended up purchasing a mouse specifically designed for bluetooth when that one kicked the bucket.

    Eidorian is probably referring to this article from engadget.

    http://www.engadget.com/2008/01/31/logitechs-mx-revolution-goes-bluetooth-at-the-fcc/

    As you can see, its the Nanos big brother which will get the bluetooth treatment.

    I own a VX nano and I can confirm it is not a bluetooth mouse. Its still a great mouse though. Highly recommended, if you don't mind sacrificing a USB port.

    I have a VX Nano (and really like it). I love the little case it comes with.

    In any case, it is NOT a bluetooth mouse. Its receiver is really small and I never notice it as its just plugged into the back of my USB hub. Of course, when i'm on the road I lose a port.

    it would say if it worked with Bluetooth. it uses RF. the dongle is hardly noticeable but its up to you.
