The Palm Wireless Keyboard is the latest keyboard from Palm. As the name implies, it connects to your Palm handheld wirelessly through Infra Red (IR) instead of using the Universal Connector, which is great news for users of the Zire, Zire 21 and the Tungsten E users alike since there isn't a Universal Connector on them. It's good for Tungsten T3 users too as it allows them to use it in the landscape orientation, something which I believe is a first.
The Palm Wireless keyboard's construction is of monotone grey plastic, with slightly darker grey rubber trim, and white text. When fully closed, it measures 5.5 inches long, by 3.75 inches wide, and 0.7 inches thick. Its weight is kept low by the near totality of plastic, and even loaded with 2 AAA batteries, it only weighs about 5.7 ounces.
Most of the keys do double, triple, or even quadruple duty though shift and function keys. Special functions include triggering the application and silkscreen buttons, program commands, and currency symbols.
This is just the thing for typing notes and documents on the road instead of squinting and scratching with a stylus. The unit collapses so that it is not much larger than the Palm PDA that it will be used with. When folded out, it has the feel of a real keyboard.
has large, even, and perfectly smooth keys that just cry out to be typed on. Tactile response is solid.
The infrared port of the keyboard is mounted on a flexible plastic arm that rotates about 100 degrees in an arc starting in the bottom left corner of the tray and working its way to the upper right corner. This design allows it to cover practically any handheld's IR port perfectly.
Rather than the metal-case clamshell with freestanding plastic easel approach of most IR keyboards, the PIK is a single piece, unfolding into its own stand. Front and center is the opening mechanism, a large J-shaped latch stamped with the classic Palm emblem. It grips very tightly, which is a mixed blessing--the keyboard won't come open easily, but... well, the keyboard won't come open easily. Once open, the clamp folds further back to click into place, where it's later used as the prop for the stand portion of the keyboard. At this point, the keyboard pops open into three seperate layers. The topmost folds straight back to make up the stand area. The second layer folds out to the right to join the bottom-most layer in making up the keyboard and base.
