    Wii Keyboard

    Hi Wii fans,

    I can't find any mention of a wii keyboard?
    Will the wii recognise any usb keyboard or will i need a wii one? (if one exists?)
    I don't fancy typing emails on the opera browser with just a directional pad

    I am all most certain that the Wii will recognize any USB keyboard.

    I'm not so sure... it takes more than just a USB port to hook up things like a keyboard... the software involved would have to be there and I haven't heard/seen anything that points to it being there...

    The DS can be used as a keyboard for the web browser
    When I read about the evils of drinking I gave up reading.

    Actually unlike LAN adapters and other complicated USB devices, keyboards, mouses and USB storage devices might work.

    If I have understood things right these are "legacy USB devices" that should work in some primitive way in most PC:s without an OS or drivers.

    I think this is some standard communications protocol used on these that might (and that's a BIG MIGHT) work with the Wii but I would'nt start buying keybs and usb memorys just yet.

    Yeah... kb's and mice should be able to connect. And although (not yet at least) I don't think the Wii will be my primary access to the net (I just don't think it'll ever be as fast as a puter for browsing the net) I'd still no doubt try a basic keyboard when I get the system.

    I think it should work, any USB keyboard and mouse will work in DOS (on a PC). (as long as it is switched on in your BIOS)
    And DOS doesn't load up any USB drivers, just the drivers you need to run the computer.
    So if the Wii has keyboard functions there i don't see why it shouldn't work.
