GC 2008: PS3 Wireless Keyboard Surfaces
Posted August 20, 2008 by Jereme Puik
Sony is pushing forward with a new announcement of another hardware prehibpreal addition. A wireless keyboard much in the fashion of the 360's version will be hitting Playstation 3 owners this fall. The new keyboard will lock straight into your Six Axsis controller for full support through your encounters online on the Playstation Network. This is all coming straight from Son'y Playstation Blog....
Lastly, we’ve announced a new Wireless Keypad for PS3 that will make text communications and Web browsing much easier. The Wireless Keypad snaps onto the top of a SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller and comes with some cool features, including a mode that turns the main key area into a touch pad (similar to a touch pad on a Laptop computer). Once in this mode, you can slide your finger on this area to move the cursor on the screen and tap to enter. There will be two short cut buttons on the Keypad that will enable users to jump directly to the XMB’s “Friends” icon and the “Message Box” during gameplay. The Wireless Keypad will launch in late November.
