Compact design; works with Palm and Pocket PCs.

Keyboard slide mechanism not the smoothest; flimsy PDA stand.

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...

Acceptable, better for devices with HID settings

 

Decent reliable keyboard, however it's natural rapid type delay is pretty short, on an android device, expect to mmmmmmmmake a couple errors like that. However great remote when I want to sit back from laptop and type.

Palm Universal Wireless Keyboard

 

I bought this keyboard for my Dell AXIM 30 and while I have had certain teething problems I have now got the hang of it and am getting pretty good performance. The whole trick for me was in the little twiddling, getting the best position for the probe...

Palm Universal Wireless Keyboard

 

I had the folding keyboard for the Palm m105. That keyboard is about as heavy and larger when folded out. It also had indented keys, this one does not. It is somewhat difficult to type fast on it, especially if you make typos because the backspace key...
