PS3 Wireless Keypad Dated

Sony today set out an official launch date for the PS3 Wireless Keypad as well as a relatively newer, multi-device AC Adaptor. The former is now due in the first week of December for $50 and supplies a full QWERTY keyboard for chat and messaging in supporting games. It also has a unique surface that doubles a touchpad for the PS3's web browser and is based on Bluetooth, allowing it to pair with both the console and devices like cellphones.

The AC Adaptor is meant to recharge up to two of Sony's gamepads simultaneously without leaving the PS3 turned on but also delivers the same kind of support for other PlayStation-related devices, including the Wireless Keypad and the official Bluetooth headset. It also has enough power to recharge the newer PSP-2000 and PSP-3000 handhelds, the company adds.

Sony plans to ship the Adaptor slightly later, putting it in stores the second week of December for $25.
