Belkin Wireless PDA keyboard

 

At 5.2 by 3.6 by 0.8 inches, closed, with stand attached, and 8.8 ounces, the Belkin isn't the heaviest of the lot (the Targus takes that title), but it wasn't as compact as Think Outside's Stowaway keyboard either. The detachable PDA stand, which...

Easy setup; fair price.

Small, cramped keys; no keyboard lock; flimsy PDA stand.

While it's well priced and easy to use, small keys and a flimsy design keep this PDA keyboard from earning top marks.

Belkin Wireless PDA keyboard

 

The affordable price of Belkin's PDA keyboard doesn't make up for its cramped keys.

Easy setup ; Fair price

Small, cramped keys ; No keyboard lock ; Flimsy PDA stand

Despite the ease of setup, using the keyboard was a little painful. Unlike the Stowaway, Belkin includes a top row of dedicated number keys and subsequently decreases the size of the individual keys. Its 13mm key pitch and 3mm key travel made for a...

Unlike package claim, not for Tungsten E

 

This is probably a nice product if it is compatible with your device: easy to use, installs easily, large enough to be functional

Negative experience: The package claims compatibility with Tungsten E. Could find no way to move from item to item on PDA (e.g. tasks, contacts). I checked the website, and Tungsten E is NOT on the Compatibility List

Is universal PDA keyboard

 

Is a universal keyboard and it can be used by any PDA(Palm OS and Pocket PC). This keyboard, when you close the keyboard you have like a hard case for their protection and it's compact you can carry to any place. Is cool

This keyboard doesn't function via Bluetooth

"A virtually unusable product"

 

Small and not rigidly connected to the PDA

My first experience with this type of equipment was a Palm folding keyboard that was directly connected to a Palm Vx. If I was rating it I would have given it somewhere in the neighbourhood of 8s across the board. I recently purchased a Belkin, however,

Consumer review by:

Portable, cool, and it matches my Palm pda.

 

size, ease of use and setup, and i especially like the fact that the pda stand is not attached, this way i can put the pda in a more comfortable position, both for viewing and typing

The spacebar is split into two separate buttons, and while typing i can only use one to imput a "space", as the other clicks different ans also doubles as a function button or something
