    well, after i wrote my comment above that manufactures should try to make some fold able bluetooth keyboards like the ones used for PDAs i started thinking... wouldn't those bluetooth PDAs keyboards (like this one, Think Outside Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse) work with the PS3 anyways?

    I use it for my media centre at the moment and it's great for couch surfing
    sorry, me again... forgot to ask you this question... what do you mean by RF? are you talking about IR signals? Or is RF another way of calling bluetooth devices that i did not know?! i am confused now...

    Sony didn't choose 7 for the max devices, 7 is the amount of available chanels to any bluetooth device. Its a limitation of bluetooth technology.

    Mouse and keyboard are supported by the XMB and browser, but most games do not support it. It is a choice of the developer of the game to include mouse/keyboard control.

    COD 3 works with mouse and keyboard, my friend confirmed.

    The keyboard uses Radio Frequency instead of bluetooth. Seems to be much cheaper than similar bluetooth ones and i like the track ball/scroller postioning for couch surfing plus it's not too bulky to sit on the coffee table.

    Here is a link

    I found it cheaper on e-bay here in Aus.

    wow - this sounds awesome, however i'm not sure about wiring up a 2nd usb to the mouse, could the power be sorted by using a more low tech mouse? or even a ps2 mouse? or if not any tips on dual usb'ing a mouse?

    thanks, key/mouse would make my day....

    to ian... but ps3 only bluetooth right?

    but how in the heck are you guys getting these RF (radio frequency) keyboards working with the ps3? because i thought that the ps3 only takes bluetooth? right? and isn't radio frequency different then bluetooth? man... i am going to be googling this stuff today... cuz i am confused. i thought they were all different.

    but changing the subject here a bit, has anyone tried using thos bluetooth foldable keyboards that you use with your pds/cellphones with the ps3? i am contemplating in getting one but wanted to know if anyone has tried... TIA!

    i was in a game stop a few weeks ago and a Sont rep. told me that any bluetooth keyboard and mouse will work. but im to cheap to buy a bluetooth keyboard and mouse. I was reading yesterday that i want to say Pelican is comming out with a keyboard that attaches to the PS3 controller. it uses a USB connection on your PS3
