Nintendo Wii to get Kiiboard?

Sure, we love our Wii remotes and nunchuks, but what we really want is to speed up our Wii web browsing with a keyboard.And it looks like our prayers could be answered, with a special keyboard (or Wiiboard if you will) possibly on the way. US games mag Game Informer has a snippet buried away in the news in briefs declaring that Ninty's developers are 'considering adding a keyboard peripheral to the system in order to make surfing online easier.'It makes perfect sense to use. Now that Wii's Internet Channel is fully up and running, the only thing holding it back is the lack of a proper QWERTY slab to type on. It wouldn't be the first such Nintendo device either, the Gamecube had a couple of keyboards made for it, including the Sammy controller (pictured).Adding further fuel to the fire is Logitech's announcement last week that it's working with Mario and co to bring new peripherals to the Wii. Bluetooth-enabled with subtle backlighting please, Logitech.
