Samsung remote control adds physical QWERTY

Over in Vegas at CES, Pocket-lint got all touch feely with the RMC30D Touch Control TV - a more intuitive remote control setup than traditionally supplied - and now it's added to the options available with the launch of the QWERTY TV Remote which, as you can probably guess by the name, throws a physical keyboard into the equation too.

The miniature keyboard automatically disables the keys on the side not being used, so you won't find yourself turning off Emmerdale half way through by mistake, and is designed to make the social media aspects of the Samsung Smart TV range easier to access.

The QWERTY TV Remote is included with every new Samsung premium model, including the LED D8000 and D7000 Series and Plasma D8000 Series and it's also compatible with LED series from D6300 and up.

It's out in April, no word on price just yet.
