CNET First Look
Logitech Cordless Keyboard (Wii)The Logitech Cordless Keyboard for Wii is a capable and comfortable keyboard for anyone who's doing a lot of text entry on the Nintendo game console, but it's not a must-have accessory.
[ Muisc ] ^M00:00:02 >> I'm John Falcone, Senior Editor at CNET.com and this is the Logitech Cordless Keyboard for Wii. It's the first officially licensed wireless keyboard for the Wii and it is a matching white design in several Wii specific keys. It includes a tiny USB daggle that plugs at the back of the Wii and it's powered by two AA batteries. The keyboard is designed to sit in your lap while you're browsing the Web or using a chat-centric game and it's generally comfortable to use. The lack of a wrist rest may become tiresome over the long term. Also, you'll still need to keep the Wiimote control nearby to navigate the Wii screens since the keyboard doesn't have a trackpad or a cursor control. For what it's worth, the Wii keyboard will also work with Windows and Mac computers. It's also worth noting that the Wii can use many standard USB and wireless PC keyboards as well, so you don't necessarily need this Wii specific one though it certainly will look better in your living room than most larger, clunkier PC keyboards we've seen. All in all the Logitech Cordless Keyboard is hardly a must-have purchase for most Wii owners, but those who have need for a lot of tech-centric on the Wii will find that it gets the job done.
