Philips DUAL remote has a QWERTY on one side

This is Philips Home Control DUAL, and it is definitely designed for those who have home theater computers.

As you can see, the QWERTY keyboard is there, but it is on the other side of the keyboard. It isn’t exactly a slider like that one TiVo remote, but at least it doesn’t clutter everything else. This leaves one side perfect for all the basic TV controls, and then flip it over for the occasions when typing is needed.

I don’t have any word on when this remote will see the light of day, and I am surprised that it wasn’t shown off at IFA. It is difficult to top that remote that Samsung showed off.
