We heard rumors that RIM was working on a wireless keyboard case for the BlackBerry PlayBook back in April of last year. Since then they have been very quiet on that front though I have been keeping an eye out on it. I was sent a slide deck by one of our sources that told me it is now going out to BlackBerry distributors and should probably be available soon. My guess is it will coincide with the PlayBook OS 2.0 launch.
We also have more details on how the new BlackBerry Mini Keyboard works with the PlayBook. Here is a breakdown of the features listed:
- Both a keyboard and a touchpad
- Can last up to 30 days on a charge
- Comes with a case that folds over your PlayBook
- Multitouch touchpad with one finger left click and two finger right click (for remote desktop apps)
- Mouse scrolling with two fingers on the touchpad
- Charges via MicroUSB
Hopefully we will get a launch date and pricing soon! Check out all the slide deck for the BlackBerry Mini Keyboard below:
