Samsung Smart TV QWERTY Remote is just Want Smart TV Users Wanted

Samsung whipped out a really cool remote to go along with its line of Samsung Smart TVs a few weeks back that I somehow managed to miss. The cool thing about connected devices like Samsung Smart TVs is that you can access all sorts of online content right from your set without having to fire up you notebook or tablet.

The catch is that trying to navigate online with an on-screen keyboard is not ideal in the least. Most Samsung Smart TVs can’t be hooked to your average computer keyboard leaving users fighting with on-screen keyboards that really hurt the smart TV experience.

Samsung has a new remote control that will fix those issues called simply the QWERTY TV Remote. As you might guess from the product name, the little remote has a QWERTY keyboard on it and it reminds me a bit of the small QWERTY keyboard remote that Logitech sells for its Revue Google TV set top box.

The cool remote control is included with every one of the premium Samsung Smart TVs including the D8000 and D7000 series along with the Plasma D8000 Series. The set will also work with other Smart TVs as well including the D6300 series, but the remote is sold separately with those sets.

The little remote has a small LED screen on it that shows the text you are typing out and it connects to the TV wirelessly. The other side of the QWERTY remote also has buttons and controls for the TV. The remote uses cool sensing tech to turn off the buttons on the opposite side of the remote depending on which side is up. That means if you are typing away on the remote the TV controls on the other side are turned off so you don’t accidentally change the channel or turn the sound up.
