Among a total of five products Logitech has unveiled at this year’s CES comes the new diNovo Mini, a palm-sized Bluetooth keyboard designed to allow users to control their PC entertainment — view photos, watch vidoes, listen to music, browse the web, send IMs, play games, etc. — from the comfort of the couch (it’s mainly for those who have a PC hooked to the TV).

The sleek silver and black clamshell device features a fully backlit keyboard for easy text entry in all lighting conditions, an innovative ClickPad that doubles as a laptop-like touch pad and a d-pad all in one for comfortable menu navigation, dedicated hotkeys for quick web browsing, a dedicated button for launching Windows Media Center, a row of media player controls, built-in Bluetooth 2.0 wireless technology with a 30-foot range, and rechargeable Li-ion batteries that promise to last up to one month on a full charge. According to Logitech’s product page, the device is listed as compatible with the PS3 — in addition to Windows XP/Vista PCs — but none of the documentation says anything specific about PS3 functionality beyond that.

The diNovo Mini is due out in the US and Europe later this month and will retail for $149.99. Hit the jump for a brief product demo video and a full gallery of hardware shots.
