It was only a matter of time before we started to see the first wave of PS3 branded input devices, and no surprise, Logitech is leading the charge. Today they're introducing their Cordless MediaBoard keyboard for PlayStation 3, a wireless keyboard with vertical scrollbar and touchpad so you can forget stringing that mouse across the room. Although you can't exactly use it to games, it'll be available next month to sate your PS3 browsing and messaging needs for $80 -- two things sure to make Phantom weep a little harder over its scammy little Lapboard.http://www.engadget.com/2007/01/04/logitechs-new-cordless-mediaboard-keyboard-for-ps3-eat-that-ph/

Looks alright, maybe if it were cheaper and came in all black. I'll stick to a regular keyboard till then.

Yeah, if it is going to be PS3 branded it could at least match the color scheme. I'm currently using a black Saitek Eclipse keyboard.

Haven't picked up a mouse yet though.
Is that wireless?

Edit: Nevermind, used google and found it's USB. That looks really nice though and I'm currently using a USB keyboard with mine.

I wish sony would release a bluetooth KB and mouse profile, but it looks like they might if the logitech one is wireless, unless it is just RF with a usb reciever. I'm using the MX5000 set with my PS3, but I need to have the dongle for it in one of the usb ports since I can't connect directly to the PS3's bluetooth.
