[E3 2008] Logitech Types Up Wireless Wii Keyboard!


Seems like online chat is finally starting to become a factor on the Wii. First Nintendo announced its new WiiSpeak microphone accessory and now Logitech has jumped on board with a new Nintendo licensed wireless keyboard built specifically for the Wii. Sleek, compact and Wii-white in color, the Logitech Cordless Keyboard will be essential for surfing the Internet Channel and text communication in certain “upcoming chat-oriented games.” Like the WiiSpeak microphone, I’m sure this keyboard will come in real handy for typing up notes and communicating with friends in Animal Crossing: City Folk.

The Logitech Cordless Keyboard for Wii is currently due out in both North America and Europe in August at a retail price of $49.99. Hit the jump for additional product shots and soundless demonstration videos, and also be sure to head over to the keyboard product page for all the specs.
