Official Bluetooth mini keyboard for the PlayBook is coming soon, possibly in time for PlayBook 2.0
Sometimes you have to wonder whether a company is committed to the success of a certain product, but as we’ve seen of late from RIM’s camp, the company is going through some rocky times. Almost a year since it rolled onto the scene, we’re almost nearing the inevitable arrival of an official Bluetooth mini keyboard for the BlackBerry PlayBook, which strangely first came to light back in April of last year.

Who knows why there has been such a long wait for it, but recent leaked slides indicate that its arrival is coming soon, and more importantly, it might actually launch the same time as the new PlayBook 2.0 software. Peeking over at some of the slides, we can faintly see the actual appearance of the keyboard in some of them – showing us a uniform layout with a touchpad on board as an optional form of navigation.

On top of that, it’s mentioned that its battery charge can last up to 30 days, it comes with a case that folds over the PlayBook, mouse scrolling enabled, offers multi-touch control, and it chargers through a microUSB port. Certainly, we’re given some specific details about the mini Bluetooth keyboard, but its pricing is still unknown at this point. Knowing that RIM has been discounting its QNX based tablet very aggressively of late, we’re hoping to see something on the same lines with the keyboard.
