Stowaway Universal Bluetooth Keyboard

 

Users of Bluetooth-equipped handhelds and smartphones will love this well-designed folding keyboard, although Palm OS fans will have to wait for drivers.

Small and light ; Solidly built, and comes with protective zip-up case ; Excellent hardware design ; Removable handheld/smartphone stand supports landscape and portrait orientation

Requires Bluetooth-compatible handheld or smartphone ; No Palm OS drivers yet

The Stowaway Universal Bluetooth Keyboard is a good portable keyboard. It has a well designed device stand, is easy to configure and is solidly built. Note, though, that extensive Bluetooth use can drain the battery life from your handheld or...

Think Outside - Stowaway Universal Bluetooth Keyboard

There are less expensive PDA keyboards to be had, and you will need Bluetooth on your PDA of course. But for sheer elegance as well as enabling touch-typing speeds, the Stowaway Universal Bluetooth keyboard is a very usable choice.

Stowaway Universal Bluetooth Keyboard

 

Great productivity tool. I use it with Office Suite on my Nokia N82 and also on my Eee PC. Very user friendly

Feels like a regular keyboard to the touch. The device stand is adjustable to three positions

The labels on the keys with the Fn function are not so readable
