What is the Citrix X1 Mouse?
Keeping in mind the growing demand for an ergonomically designed mouse for the remote workstations during the COVID-19, global technology giant Citrix released its Citrix X1 mouse. Citrix X1 Mouse is a business-only hardware tool that is designed to work with Citrix Receiver on an iOS/ iPad. X1 Mouse is not a consumer product, as Citrix admits on the products page.
What is Citrix X1 Mouse?
Citrix X1 Mouse is a 2-button wireless Scroll wheel-cum-Laser Sensor device designed specifically for Apple iOS.
It is laced with a Bluetooth 4.0 BLE module that has a maximum operating distance of 10 meters and performs at 1200 fps/ up to 30 inches per second. X1 delivers a movement resolution of up to 2000 dpi. A simple mouse has a sensitive factor of less than 500 dpi. Mouse with gaming features has a sensitivity factor of 1600 dpi. With 2000 dpi resolution, X1 is perfect gaming hardware, though it’s not designed to perform just that.
