    Actual Wording

    "After the latest firmware update for the Wii enabling Keyboards to be used in the Internet Channel, Logitech have announced that they will be releasing the “Logitech Classic Keyboard 200”, oriented for the Wii demographic. The keyboard has been only confirmed for Europe so far, but an Australian conformation is likely to occur soon. Also the Microphone that was bundled with Boogie will be made available separately soon"

    Sucks that its only confirmed in Europe, great for them though. Hopefully it stumble to the US.

    Nearly all USB keyboards are compatible, so I don't see why Nintendo is telling us of one of the compatible ones... Maybe it's the fact that you can spill as much coffee as you want on it.

    Are they claiming this is a new keyboard? I am using that exact keyboard right now, I've had it for several months.

    I don't see why anybody would waste their money buying a keyboard for their Wii when they could just use the internet on their computer much more easily. I only use the Wii Internet Channel for quick searches or if I'm very bored.

    It sounds like it will be the same keyboard but with some "Wii specific" design element(s). Likely color matching, or possibly a special hotkey or the the like - so I'm assuming a Wii Edition or some such jive.

    Although it's practically useless, I'm sure that it will still sell once Nintendo brands a Wii keyboard.

    I plugged in a HP wireless USB keyboard and it works perfectly fine any old USB keyboard will work i even have a PS2 Port (not the console) to USB adapter that you plug in a mouse and keyboard into and that even works (not the mouse just the keyboard)

    Um, that one connects inside of the controller. How would that work with the Wii 'mote and chuck. Wireless USB keyboards work with the Wii.

    Will this be wireless?

    If not, does anyone know of a good wireless usb keyboard I can get? How much do they usually cost? I want one for internet on the wii and for sending people messages. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    "Inside" as in between the protruding parts of at the bottom of the joystick.
    I read what you typed very well, you obviously didn't understand what I typed.

    What would the point be of having some small little keyboard that can't be attached to the Remote or Nun chuck when a full size wireless USB keyboard works perfectly well. Are you really going to hold a keyboard, the 'mote, and chuck all at the same time so you can type with your thumbs? Are you looking for a keyboard that you stick the 'mote and chuck in like the Zapper?

    its a nice sized keyboard, it would be annoying carrying around a fullsized keyboard, i just think the messenger for the 360 is the perfect size 'board for typing on something other than a pc, afterall it does have all the keys youd need. as for the mounting to the controllers..i have no idea , just thought it'd be cool

    your most likely going to be using the keyboard for messages and internet surfing rather then in-game messages i think a simple wireless usb keyboard with only the buttons that actualy work on the wii would be kinda nice
