Canon trots out X Mark I calculator, Bluetooth mouse hybrid

Canon X Mark I Mouse Lite serves Mac and Windows

Canon took an unusual left turn Tuesday with a pair of computer peripherals. The X Mark I Mouse Lite (also called the Slim) combines a three-button Bluetooth 2.0 mouse with a basic calculator. The normally imaging-focused firm pitches it as a complement for a Mac or Windows notebook owner who wants both an external mouse and a numeric calculator or keypad.

A companion, the X Mark I Keypad, drops the mouse functionality in favor of a larger, dedicated keypad that can still pair up with a computer. It gets the option of solar power in addition to AAA batteries to help it run for much longer.

Both peripherals cost $60, though the mouse will be available first, in August, where the keypad-only add-on arrives in September.
