    So is there any news about a stowaway keyboard for the Treo? Rumors? Ways to request one?

    I haven't heard anything, but you can always contact the good people over at ThinkOutside to ask them/suggest it.

    stowaway keyboard?
    What's the point? Have you tried thumb typing on a blackberry keyboard? Try it...It's good enough assuming you don't have acromegaly.

    Well, the thumb-typing is not bad, but 90% of the time I don't think I can live without grafitti and the grafitti area. But 10% of the time I am in a meeting and like to use the stowaway to keep minutes on my Visor.

    I think that the Stowaway.. is very important. Everyone in here lists it as a major part of their visor tools.

    I am planning on getting one... and I am going to require a stowaway becuase of times in the hotel or wherever when I am traveling where I need to compose a letter or some sort of documentation... and I do not wish to type with my thumbs....

    just my 2 cents...

    Based on how long people who have gone to the "Edge" have waited. Don't hold your breath for the keyboard. I think they have a better chance of somebody building an adapter so they can use a regular visor or prism keyboard. I don't think the sales were there to warrant Think Outside to invest in supporting the Edge.

    Since you can get the Treo with a thumb keyboard built in; this would further decrease demand for the stowaway on this model.

    It all comes down to what will make money. And as we've seen by Handsprings adopting of 1-900-Helpme ($19.95) Tech support; they don't have a lot of extra money to support that kind of development.

    Just my 39 cents worth.

    Well... why does Hanspring need to change the connector each time?

    I think that is the problem....

    I am looking at my VPLt and it would seem logical that the same connector could be on the bottom on the TREO.....

    Thanks Culo for that last tidbit of information...I guess. Although, had you left, taken care of business and then completed your post, we wouldn't have been any wiser. Sometimes less info is better.

    I find it hard to believe that two thumbs on a thumboard (sp) are faster than eight well trained digits on a Stowaway keyboard.

    Anyone able to back up this idea? I think for those of use who type well, a thumb-board keyboard would definitely slow us down. So I hope this great looking model has a Stowaway available for it!

    Thanks.

    I agree! As someone who can type relatively well, my feeling is that the thumboard and the built-in graffiti "keyboard" are designed for people who mainly hunt and peck. I've gotten fairly fast with graffiti, but I am still much faster with a keyboard and use it for any serious work. But, I haven't tried the thumboard myself, so real experience would be welcome.

    I share your incredulity. I think the thumboards may be good for short text messaging, but for longer emails and report composition, I'd want a regular keyboard. I suppose it also depends on whether you're a touch-typist. When I'm revved up I can type 100kpm and I would hate to give that up to a thumboard...

    Hasn't anyone come out with an adaptor that will let you use a different Visor than is intended? It would seem that it would be a great idea for people with multiple handhelds who don't see the point of buying the same item with a different port... that seems like as good an idea as the flip lid
