PS3 Wireless Keypad alternative: the mini chat-board

Want that PlayStation 3 wireless keypad but you don't want to cough up the 50 bucks? Here's an alternative you might want to consider.

It's the new mini chat-board from Speedlink. It's not as nice and glossy as the official PS3 keypad, but it's lighter on the wallet. It costs EUR 29.99 (US$ 41).

The product description only mentions the keyboard function, so you won't get the touchpad feature that the official Sony one has. But it's still ten bucks cheaper, so what do you expect?

The keyboard is powered by two AA batteries, and connects to the PlayStation 3 via a 2.4GHz USB receiver. It will be available in European territories sometime this month.

The story is too old to be commented.

better features on the PS Keypad than this one.

Agreed. I'll pay 10$ more to get the touch pad and a slicker look.
