Style:Keyboard - PA800U
The Targus Stowaway portable keyboard for Handspring Visor enables you to quickly and comfortably enter text into your handheld without having to carry around a full-size desktop keyboard. The Stowaway keyboard is a full-size keyboard when open but folds instantly to about the size of your Visor. This portable keyboard has the same key spacing as a standard desktop keyboard so it's comfortable to use. Plus, at only 7.9 ounces it won't weigh you down.
This Stowaway keyboard is compatible with Handspring Visor handhelds running Palm OS v3.1 or later, including Visor Pro, Neo, Prism, Deluxe, and Platinum. It is not compatible with Handspring Visor Edge handhelds or the Handspring Treo series. (See the Stowaway portable keyboard model for Visor Edge.)
Installation of the Keyboard application onto your Handspring Visor is easily accomplished during a typical HotSync. (To prepare the app for HotSync, simply add it to Install Tool on Windows, or Install Handheld Files in the Mac HotSync Manager.) Because the keyboard only needs power while it is actually being used, the effect on the overall battery life of your Visor will be minimal.
To operate the keyboard with your handheld, click the Stowaway keyboard open from its folded position, lay it flat, and slide the keyboard parts together (it's separated into thirds for folding). Then, simply attach your handheld and start typing in a text-based program.
You can do virtually all your work without taking your fingers off the keyboard with the Stowaway. The four custom keys on the right side of the keyboard (Date Book, Address, To Do List, and Memo Pad) are preprogrammed shortcut keys to activate certain applications, but they can be customized with the Keyboard application.
Placing the keyboard on a firm, flat surface offers the best results, because of the folding design. However, you can use it on your lap as long as the keyboard is supported by a magazine or book across its open expanse. --Agen G.N. Schmitz
