Sony has told Eurogamer that the wireless keypad for PlayStation 3 will launch here on 28th November for GBP 24.99.

This handy piece of hardware, unveiled during the Leipzig Games Convention, clips into Sixaxis and DualShock 3 controllers and apparently looks a bit like a Blackberry keyboard.

It also includes a touch-pad, like a laptop, that handles mouse input - which should make using the PS3 web-browser much easier.

On top of that, there are shortcut buttons for quick access to Communication and Message Box, ensuring navigation is short and snappy.

Look out for our thoughts on the wireless keypad closer to release.
