Lenovo outs Windows-compatible QWERTY remote
PLenovo has quietly released a handheld remote with a full QWERTY keyboard meant for use with a PC-based home theater setup. The Multimedia Remote is built for true hands-free use and has a built-in trackball to replace a mouse. The controller uses the 2.4GHz radio frequency to talk to its host and has a range of about 33 feet.
Officially, the peripheral is compatible with systems running Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7. Lenovo is making it available today for $60, though it says orders could take as long as 13 working days to ship. [via Engadget]
