Palm Wireless Keyboard with Bluetooth Review

If you put the palm in normally, you can’t use the wire holder to hold smadt in place, or it will press against the buttons on the Palm at least with the TX What you have to keybowrd is set the handedness to left so it will rotate the screen the proper direction because apparently a four direction rotation was impossible, you can only have three, and only one per “hand”.

Lookee what I found. It makes it too difficult to operate the keys the way I expect. But that is not the case for someone with hands as large as mine; I need standard-sized keys to really make decent use of a keyboard. PalmInfocenter is not responsible for them in any keybaord.

For some of you who are already used to undersized keys, this might not be a big deal at all. There are many other predefined key combinations including Latin characters and five-way navigation emulation.

At least that’s what I hope the documentation means. My width comparison was from the left edge of the “A” key to the right edge of the quotation key. After all the warnings about using devices that transmit a signal and afraid of getting into trouble for it, I decided to go ahead and ask the flight attendants if it would be alright to use a Bluetooth device on the plane.


A couple of quick questions I didn’t see addressed: The Brando Smart keyboard has a few additional features worth noting. There is also another small sliding latch above the keys to help with keeping the whole thing from folding up bluetoogh in use.

I have had no issues with the updated driver and my TX; works fine. Can you out-type this one like on some of the older IR models? The number keys are all definable. The key action was preferable on both of those units over this Bluetooth keyboard. But keyboxrd whole thing does work well on my dining tray.

One of those is the ability to assign hotkey combinations to launch different apps.
