O.K. Take your hands and pretend like your using this new keypad coming from Sony. We can’t figure out if it’s going to be comfy or a just plain awkward. It look like you need to move your hands off the nubs to use it. Sony has always been on par with ergonmical controls, so we are going to trust ’em on this one till we can fondle it ourselves.
As far as the control goes, most think it’s going to attach via the top mounted mini-USB port and even have a ‘touchpad mode.” Supposedly, when said mode is activated, the key area turns into a touchpad somehow. Pricing and availability hasn’t been announced just yet. We’ll let ya know as soon as here hear something more.
