Everyone’s favorite DVR fanatics have just announced a revolutionary new product to compliment the rest of their illustrious line of goods, the TiVo Slide Remote. The QWERTY slider connects via Bluetooth and is available starting today for $89.99 on the TiVo website. Best Buy will begin carrying the remote this weekend.
“This finger-friendly device strengthens TiVo’s product offerings, giving consumers the best tools to find what they want more quickly,” said Jim Denney, vice president and general manager of product marketing for TiVo. “This is the first ever DVR remote with a full QWERTY keyboard, and we are certain that users will be excited to get their thumbs on it. The slick design has the same fun look of the classic TiVo remote, but makes it even easier to get more from your TV experience.”
I don’t have a TiVo but it doesn’t take a scientist of rockets to figure out the benefit of having a full keyboard whilst searching for your favorite shows.
