Don't worry. Even though it doesn't have a price, a release date, or even a name, the QWERTY thumb keyboard
that Microsoft has taken to calling the "text input device" is very much real (not just a rendering), as evidenced by these shots posted at Microsoft's Gamerscore Blog
. It wraps around the handles and attaches to the gamepad using the headset connector; unfortunately, as confirmed by Engadget
, the device does not enable pass-through of the headset and will instead ship with its own unique headset.
