What I liked most about that consolle are two features:
- the wiimote, the remote control that permits the user to act very easily, without any wired game pad
- the Internet channel, that is the Opera web browser for surfing the Internet
During the year I also used the Opera web browser to visit some web sites, but after a while I really missed using a keyboard to enter text: the on-screen virtual keyboard is ok, but then I get tired...
Some days ago I updated the Wii system software and the Opera web browser, just using a wi-fi connection to Internet.
I found out that Nintendo is supporting connecting a USB keyboard to the consolle! Now I can type-in text in web forms and write messages very easily.
The web browser is NOT a beta release anymore, it's really a good web browser:
- fast, simple and effective, with useful feedback features
- nice zoom feature using the handy wiimote
