VI, you keep asking questions you know the answer to.. Wireless keyboards don't work with the Roku.
i'm hoping that someday someone will make a wireless keyboard for roku.
its not so far fetch.
until the iphone who knew phones would ever be touch screen.
i'm sure that came about because someone said hey wouldn't this be great.
i'm just doing the same.
I owned a Windows Mobile-powered HTC PPC-6700
in 2005 and before that a Palm-powered Samsung SPH-i330
in 2002. Both were touch screen phones and considered to be smartphones. Both had installable apps, internet access, data syncing, and the ppc-6700 even provided tethering and an SD card slot.
On topic, I use my laptop, iPhone or iPad for wireless text-entry on the Roku almost every day. If you have a mobile device(android phone, tablets, ipod touch, Nintendo DSi, etc.) with a keyboard, browser and wifi, you've got a wireless keyboard for Roku already. It's expensive to build a single-purpose device like a wireless keyboard just for the Roku. With the communication protocols available today from Roku, that keyboard would have to be wifi-enabled (which means it either needs a display or needs to be set up on the network with a pc first, like some wireless printers). It might be a good idea from a consumer perspective, but can a business be built around it? If I made one, could I price it low enough to move enough units to even make it worth my while?
