    I am looking to get an Android tablet soon and I read they support mouse input which I really want for word processing and spreadsheet input.

    How do you all feel about the experience of the mouse on Android is it comparable to Windows?

    I, for one, enjoy using an external mouse for my tablet. From what I hear, most of them are Bluetooth mice that are compatible with Android. However, since I have the ASUS TF300T with the keyboard dock, I can use a standard USB mouse on my tablet. It works great! I have a picture somewhere of me even using a PC Game controller with my tablet, let me look.

    I just remembered, the Android Central Forum app won't let me upload images anymore, so I'll have to do it from a PC soon.

    I tried it on my note 2, and it was actually pretty cool! I was really pleased, I wanna try figuring out hooking it up to a monitor.

    I use both a bluetooth mouse and keyboard with my Nexus 10 and have no complaints. It took me a while to get used to long pressing things with a mouse, but small learning curve there.

    Anyone know of a way to use a smartphone as a wifi or bluetooth mouse with my tablet? I searched for mouse apps in the Play store, but only seemed to find apps that allow me to connect my phone and/or tablet to a pc, not to each other.

    I have a Hisense Sero 7 Pro Tablet running Android 4.2.1 ==Bluetooth mouse installed and it works greats EXCEPT it also installs an imaginary "Broadcom Bluetooth Key BD HID" as default and this can't be changed. So I have to turn off Bluetooth every time I need to use the software key board. I am going to use the mouse anyway as is works great otherwise--anyone have an idea on a solution?

    Thanks

    Wanted to add to this thread.

    About 3 days ago I purchased the Note 8 tablet. So far I have tested out a mouse on it and am quite happy with the experience. Having a bluetooth keyboard with case coming in the next week and will hooked them up together. Hopefully I will have a video up to show how well the setup is and how this can be a replacement laptop scenario without needing much effort.
