Palm 3169WW Universal Wireless Keyboard

 

PalmOne comes closest to matching the sleekness of Think Outside's Stowaway keyboard at 5.4 by 3.9 by 0.6 inches and 7.4 ounces. Black with two long rubber strips on the bottom, the keyboard opens via a sliding mechanism that isn't terribly smooth. You...

Compact design; works with Palm and Pocket PCs.

Keyboard slide mechanism not the smoothest; flimsy PDA stand.

Travel-friendly and easy to use, the PalmOne Universal keyboard gets you tapping, whether you dance to Palm or Pocket PC.

PalmOne Universal Wireless keyboard

 

The PalmOne Universal keyboard loves both Palm and Pocket PCs, and we love it.

Compact design ; Works with Palm and Pocket PCs

Keyboard slide mechanism not the smoothest ; Flimsy PDA stand

Overall, the keys are well sized and spacious, with an 18mm key pitch and a 2.5mm key travel. They aren't quite as roomy as the Targus or the Stowaway's, and some users with larger fingers may occasionally hit the wrong key. We like that there are...

Palm Universal Wireless Keyboard

 

This keyboard is excellent for entering text, it's so much faster than graffiti or the on-screen keyboard. It has a number row up top so you don't have to deal with that FN-key weirdness just to type a number. (I had one of those tri-fold keyboards for...

Massive geek-chic appeal. PDA & keyboard are much lighter than a laptop, but nearly as good for entering a lot of text. Keyboard key response is good

The keyboard layout departs from a standard QWERTY layout for some keys. Can't connect power cord while using the keyboard on the Zire 72

Palm Universal Wireless Keyboard

 

I am using this with a Treo 650 and it is very unreliable. It comes with driver 1.05 but there is an update to 1.08 on Palmone's website. Neither driver works good. When I am in the sms program, it sends double messages and turns the caplocks on....

Nice design, very compact

Works intermittently, Flimsy IR Arm

Beats than pecking with that stylus

 

I do a lot of travel, and I don't want to have to go through airport security lugging my laptop around. And I didn't want to have to peck all the time at that on screen keyboard. So I bought this. It worked quite well, but I don't recommend it for...

Good for travel, lightweight, easy to get started

Cramped to type with, feels a little flimsy

Palm Universal Wireless Keyboard

 

I bought this keyboard to complement my Treo 650 and enable me to take notes in class as I would with a laptop. The keyboard is definitely well-engineered, folding up to be about the same size as the PDA. Also, under about 2 months of heavy use (about...

compact, ingenious design, exceptional battery life, seems to be holding up well

major compatibility issues with Treo 650, misplaced question mark key
