    Wii can use USB keyboards now! Only for Shop Channel & Writing Notes. Unfortunately the internet channel isn't compatible yet.. But hopefully soon!

    So have you tried and confirmed this? I read this in another thread, but no one had actually tried it and it wasn't on the list of changes Nintendo supplied.

    Guess it's about time to hook the net back up to the ol' Wii and download this update. Looks like any usb keyboard should work. It shouldn't be too long until the Wii becomes more functional with these things. If only for the hard drive and mouse support hinted at for the future update.

    Yeah, these possibilities are endless here. This is exciting. Extenal USB HDD's are pretty cheap. I wouldn't mind at all if the Wii becomes more like a PC, it certainly has the potential to be.

    If it took this long to get keyboard support, probably atleast a year. Sure does sound good though.

    Thanks for the great find. I have been waiting for keyboard usable with my Wii, i have tested it out and it does work.

    The message board, sending messages, Wii Shop are all keyboard compatible however all other programs are't yet. The Message board, sending messages, Wii Shop due to the most recent update they are the only programs accessible with can use the keyboard. Hopefully future updates will include keyboard accessiblity for all other programs.

    Typing with a keyboard is so much faster you wouldn't believe the difference in speed
