Just wondering if this keyboard here will work with my ps3 slim. And will it require a stupid dongle?

I would say not likely.  I've not known a single Motorola accessory that states compatibility with certain devices to work with anything but those devices.  For $26, it might be worth a go, though, considering the bluetooth alternatives that DO work are in the $50-70 range.

 

I use an Apple Wireless (bluetooth) keyboard with my PS3, and it works perfectly.  I got it on sale from the Apple store for $40 a few months ago (originally bought it for my iPad).

I was going to use this keyboard with my nexus 7 also. I'll post a link to another keyboard I was looking at.

That one looks to be universal bluetooth.  It should work well once you pair it up.

I dont know if you can connect a keyboard to you PS3 wirelesly you can get a usb hub for like 10 bucks and get a cheap working usb keyboard for like 5 bucks or if you have had a pc for the past 5 years and you are smart and save your stuff you should have one somewhere

Has anyone connected a Bluetooth keyboard to their ps3 without a dongle? I don't really have room how any more USB devices. Any other suggestions?

The PS3 has built in bluetooth.  No bluetooth device needs a dongle, and therefore, does not use a USB port.
