IGN recently chatted with Opera for Devices' executive vp Scott Hedrick about the company's commitment to develop a web browser for Wii. When asked about the lack of keyboard support, Hedrick had this to say:
"Opera plans to use [the Wiimote] to its full advantage and it will provide an intuitive way to surf the Web. Imagine the possibilities in terms of surfing with a motion sensitive remote control. I cannot specifically comment on the lack of keyboard, but many devices running Opera don't have keyboards ... and feature on-screen keyboards to solve this problem."
Hedrick also confirmed that the browser will "not be sold as a separate item," but declined to elaborate further.
