Apple's Wireless Keyboard may be getting an update very soon. Macrumors reports that an updated version of the image of the keyboard has been spotted on the online stores in the Czech Republic and Hungary. An identical Arabic keyboard has also been spotted in the US online store. While the image of the keyboard has been updated, its description has not.

Thus far, the updates that have been identified include backlighting (due to the presence of backlight brightness adjustment keys) and a power button in lieu of a CD eject button.

I would love a battery that's rechargeable via USB… which is by no means guaranteed to be on that keyboard, but 9to5Mac did dream out loud about it:

"There aren’t many other visible changes from the image, but it’s possible there could be features hiding that we can’t see, or perhaps a rechargeable battery and USB charging is too much to ask for. Backlit keys and a rechargeable battery are somewhat standard these days for comparable keyboards from other brands."

As 9to5Mac said, that might be asking too much. Doing that might mean having to make the keyboard two microns thicker. :(

Update: The images of the purported new wireless, backlit keyboard have been removed from all Apple online stores where it had briefly appeared.
