TiVo has started to ship its QWERTY TiVo Slide Remote in conjunction with the unveiling of its TiVo Premiere. This controller was specially made to cater to folks who live and breath Internet features as well as search. No prizes for guessing why the slide-out QWERTY keyboard is essential, as it works much better than a touchscreen display (although Swype proponents might disagree as to the typing speed), while a directional pad located right under the standard controls make it easy to navigate through menu systems. Since it uses Bluetooth connectivity with a USB adapter, there is no need to achieve line-of-sight – just don’t venture beyond the 33-foot radius. The Slide Remote will play nice with any Series 3 or Series 4 TiVo, and ought to retail for $90 on TiVo while hitting Best Buy retail stores this weekend.
