Logitech taps into Wii keyboard desire

A traditional take on typing

Logic 3 only unveiled its Wii keyboard earlier this month, but the firm’s offering has already been superseded by a laptop keyboard design from rival manufacturer Logitech.

Logitech's Wii keyboard

Logitech’s model sports a more conventional keyboard design than Logic 3’s attempt, meaning Logitech’s board should sit more comfortably across your lap. Logitech claims the board allows “natural typing for easy surfing, searching and sharing on the Wii”.

The cordless keyboard operates in the 2.4GHz band and comes with a USB mini-receiver that plugs into the Wii, allowing you to type from up to 30 feet away. The keyboard is powered by two AA batteries, which are included.

Dedicated keys are featured for all essential Wii requirements, including zoom in/out, forwards/back, quit and OK.

Logitech’s Cordless Keyboard for Wii will be available in Europe next month. The US price is $50 (£25/€35) - a UK-specific price hasn’t been tapped out yet.
