Vodafone has launched Webbox, a keyboard that plugs into any TV with standard RCA connectors to bring you the internet.

“With no set-up required, the plug and play keyboard converts any standard domestic television into an internet portal,” says Vodafone.

The Webbox Opera Mini browser runs over the 2.5G and EDGE mobile networks, compressing data by around 90% for faster-loading internet pages.

The browser homepage comes with bookmarks, locally relevant apps, games, a dictionary and a basic text editor.
