Damn, that's bulky. Wouldnt want to have two keyboards taking up space on my gaming table anyway. The one I have is much, much better. Easier to clean than that one would be as well.

That's what I use. If i need to clean it, I can just take the entire key surface off and clean it out with compressed air.

You really don't need a chatpad anymore. Honestly your phone is the fastest way. You don't have to connect it or sync it to your Xbox to send messages and it opens just as fast as a regular text message app. You could also connect a keyboard or use a laptop but in my opinion a chatpad would be kinda useless for Microsoft to spend money on and make because the majority would say they can just use their phone.

I'm good with the smart glass it works great, I personally would not buy a chatpad even if that option was available. I agree with you on the voice chat messages though im not sure why that does not exist yet especially when it's been a part of the 360 os for years if not from the very beginning.

You can't talk sense into the "smartglass / usb keyboard shouters".

They are always there when someone mentions a chatpad...shouting smartglass at the top of their lungs as if a chatpad killed their momma and they want it eradicated from existence. They always talk about how convenient smartglass is....it's just there...ready to go. What they don't mention is:

Get the phone out. Power the phone on, Press the smartglass app, wait for the app to load (and connect) go to the messages tab....and then start typing on a crappy, usually too small, screen.

With a chat pad you would have a message half banged out by the time you tapped the app. And that's IF your smartglass device was right there with you and on your home screen.

They have obviously never used a chatpad (or maybe simple of the mind) or they would understand.They just can't seem to comprehend that having a keyboard attached to a controller is better than reaching over and picking anything up. With a chatpad your hands stay on the controller. There is no picking something up or putting something down...it's right there. I don't know if they think it isn't fancy enough or "cool futuristic" enough or what?

There is no argument...a chat pad is quicker and more convent than smartglass or a keyboard for filling in a line of text or sending a quick message. It's not like you couldn't still use smartglass if a chatpad was released if you are so offended or confused by them.

Smartglass has some great features, but a chatpad substitute, it is not.

Anyone wanting a chatpad should log on and let MS know it is wanted.

I wonder what a chat pad would look like attached to a controller along with a headset adaptor...

what's more convenient? having to search for a chatpad and pay money for it, or integrating a devise that 99% of the xbox user base already owns and doesn't have to pay anything else, for?

i think the free app on the phone i already have, is way more convenient.
