Xbox 360 qwerty keyboard

Gamespot announced a qwerty keyboard for xbox360, but the page was quickly taken down. Luckily GamingTalkHQ was able to catch it.

New attachment snaps onto system’s standard pad for quick and easy instant message typing.To ease the task of typing in messages without the aid of a full-sized keyboard, Microsoft today announced a new text input device for the Xbox 360 controller. The attachment snaps onto the bottom of the controller through the headset jack and features a QWERTY-style key layout with 47 keys.

The keyboard attachment has not been priced or even named yet, but it is expected to see release this summer.

This definitely seems to be true as with the upcoming spring dashboard update and, Live Anywhere the texting is quite difficult with the on-screen keyboard

It looks bulky, but it still looks like it works. I can easily purchase one of these, if the price is right. Seems like a must buy for people who use Windows Messenger, but an AIM user like me, im not sure how much use I will get out of this. Would you get it and what would you mainly use it for?
