Wii USB Compatibility List
Since the 3.0 update & the release of Boogie, the Nintendo Wii has added support for Keyboards & Microphones. This is a chart of USB devices found to be working or not Working with the Wii Console.
Since the 3.0 update, the Nintendo Wii has support USB Keyboards for typing mail and memos on the Wii Message Board, searching on the Wii Shop Channel (you can type game names in the search box) and maybe on Internet Channel soon...
It is possible that Nintendo or a 3rd Party may release a USB or Bluetooth Keyboard for the Wii. Nintendo and Logitech have confirmed that they are giving support for a USB keyboard (the Classic Keyboard 200) for the Wii.
By the way, it is possible that Nintendo has added support for other USB devices on firmware 3.0.
