Default Keyboard On Its Way?

Kotaku just posted this http://kotaku.com/gaming/xbox-360/xb...ing-250606.php

LOL, those buttons must be small. More options the better I guess.

If it isn't too expensive, might be cool to pick up.

If not, then I'll stick with the regular ol' keyboard.

I think this appeals to people who are more familiar with qwerty cell phone keyboards. I have cell phones from the Treo 600 to the sidekick3 to the Blackberry Pearls. And that type of keyboard on the 360 controller while small, isn't hard to type. And you do get used to typing with your thumbs. I'm certainly up for purchasing one.

I can see some probs with using that on FFXI, Most notably the Macros.

If you have USB keyboard and plug it into the 360, it should work. I did this when signing up for my live account - just popped the USB cable and the keyboard worked like a charm! I actually think that this is a great idea to go along with the Spring update. It shouldn't be any smaller than those little keyboards on the "Blackberry" style cell phones, and lots of people seem to be able to use those just fine.
