Logitech's diNovo Mini: handy

The palm-sized diNovo Mini is a bit like a mobile phone, with your thumbs doing all the typing on its full QWERTY keyboard. Although Logitech’s PR blurb would probably have you believe that the keyboard is designed solely for use with Windows Media Center (WMC), gamers will be glad to hear that it’s also Sony PS3-compatible.

The keyboard uses Bluetooth v2.0 connectivity and Logitech claims users can do pretty much anything via the keyboard, such as typing IM messages, entering URLs or navigating WMC itself.

A so-called ClickPad is also built in for menu navigation around the likes of picture files or movie libraries, and you can save yourself a few bucks on your home’s lighting costs too as the keyboard is backlit.

The diNovo Mini uses rechargeable Li-ion batteries and Logitech claims these provide about one month’s use at a time, although a battery life indicator is built into the unit to pre-warn you.

Bluetooth connectivity, backlit and stylish

A semi-transparent hard cover also folds down to protect the keyboard from tea spills and stray pizza toppings.

Logitech’s diNovo Mini keyboard is available in the US and Europe later next month for around $150 (£75/€100), although a European specific price hasn’t been tapped out yet.
