CES : Logitech shows mini-wireless keyboard to control PC on TV

Logitech plans to show off a mini-keyboard that controls a person’s PC wirelessly from the comforts of their family room sofa.

The handheld QWERTY keyboard, called the diNovo Mini keyboard, is designed for people who have connected their PCs to their TVs, allowing them to access photos, videos and other content on the PCs as well as navigate the Web and watch downloaded shows on their TV, the company said.

The mini-keyboard uses Bluetooth 2.0 wireless technology to control PC functions and includes hotkeys for media players and Web browsers, as well as page-up and page-down buttons that allow people to scroll when surfing the Web and zoom in and out of documents and images. Bluetooth has a range of around 30-feet from the PC, Logitech said.

The device also incorporates ClickPad, a round, thumb-sized pad for use in pointing, scrolling or clicking on a Web link. It can also be used as a media remote and a directional pad to navigate menus and make selections. The ClickPad is backlit in orange when in touch-pad mode, and green when it is in media-remote mode.

The keyboard keys are always backlit in orange to keep the device on the eyes.

The diNovo Mini keyboard is expected to go on sale in the U.S. and Europe in late January for US$149.99.
