Fans of quick text entry
rejoice! Microsoft has put up an official page
for the previously announced
QWERTY thumb board, which is now officially being called the Xbox 360 Messenger Kit
. The $29.99 unit will include a custom headset (because the existing one doesn't work while the keyboard is installed) and seems set
for a Sept. 4 release date. It sure beats having an ugly USB keyboard
hanging off of your system.
