Mice for PDA's

Brighthand today reviewed a mouse for PocketPCs-and the reviewer was full of praise for the unit. The Targus product connects to the PocketPC via Bluetooth and then works like a regular desktop mouse! Impressive, isn't it? The left mouse button works well with most PC apps(replaye stylus tap), but e.g. the right mouse button isn't suported. By the way, neither Smartphones with Symbian nor Palm OS handhelds are supported.
This report lines up with the information that a new HP PocketPC has a touchpad instead of the 5-Way navigator that can opeate like a notebook's touchpad! It looks like PDA's will soon move away from the touchscreen...

Actually, when I have a keyboard on my PDA with a big screen(like a Tungsten T3), I sometimes long for a mouse too in order to save me the grip to the stylus. A Notebook-like Unit like the UX50 would also become more usable if equipped with a mouse.
However, with an IIIc or another Low-Res handheld, the mouse pointer would practically just take up way too much screen space. And using it on the go would be a pain too. I can still remember trying to use my Gericom Notebook with an external mouse(yes, it was a 486) in a car....
In addition, many third-party developers haven't yet added support for mice into their Applications. Also, PDA's are intended to be small. Mice, however, need to be approximately as big as half a hand-so they will incrase the size of the units.

Concludingly, Mice are a good idea, but not for everyone. I don't that PPCs will become more mouse-centric, because well-a touchscreen still is faster than using a mouse or touchpad(that's why I dont own a Laptop). In addition, Mice require too much space when used-PDA's must still stay small and comforatble to use on the go!

Tell me your experiences? Have you ever used a PDA with a mouse? Did you like it? I am-as always-eagerly waiting for comments and discussion!!
