Default Will any Bluetooth Mouse work?

I have a bluetooth keyboard from logitech, and it makes the tablet much easier to use, more of a laptop experience. Now I wanted to use the tablet connected to my TV, but find it a hassle to have to use the screen to select things. ect.

My question is, will any bluetooth mouse work? Logitech has a special android mouse, but its $50! I see other bluetooth mice out there for about $10-20.

Will any bluetooth mouse work? Or do I need a "special" android tablet mouse?

Thanks!

No. You need to be sure that the mouse pairs with the tablet via a 4 digit code (usually 1234 or 0000). The Targus bluetooth laser mouse (AMB03US) supposedly doesn't need a code, but I couldn't get the tablet to pair without it. I switched to a different mouse (Targus Bluetooth Comfort Mouse #BH3874)which used a code and it worked flawlessly.

Yes!! With current Technology, many Bluetooth Mouse are possible to be paired with tablets. Some of them is specially built for pairing purposes too You may ask Acer/Tablet Specialists near your area, for ensuring your Tablet A1000 is confirmed compatible to your plan-to-buy Bluetooth mouse

If this helps and convinces you, pls kindly hit ''thanks'' button

I took the risk and bought a cheap "slim black bluetooth mouse" from ebay ($10) and it works! Im currently using the logitech android keyboard. I know any bluetooth keyboard will work, but the Android specific funtions really make things easier.

Hello. I have a bluetooth keyboard and mouse that pairs and connects succesfully but after entering in idle state for a few seconds they both stop working until i press on the keyboard or mouse. Is that normal? Is there a way to avoid this idle state and loss of connection?

Can you give me a link please, or something, with the mouse? I'm interested in a cheap one for my galaxy tab 2. Thanks
