    I was looking at some pda's today, and thinking I want a keyboard on mine. (I am two weeks into third year....) I was looking at some of the recommendations, and it seems like most of the PDAs these days do not come with a keyboard. Any comments or suggestions either saying you have a keyboard and never use it, or that you wish you had it, or you recently bought model XXX with one and recommend it.....

    Thanks!

    have not considered it, esp with the glut of computers in hospitals and clinics these days. plus, i don't mind the onscreen keyboard of my dell.

    Hey,

    I have the Palm TX and companion wireless keyboard and I like it a lot. It's very convenient when I'm using my using my school's wireless and I need to send a quick email. I usually keep the keyboard in by bag and the palm in my pocket and it isn't a hassle.

    I have the above keyboard as well and took all my notes during MS1 and 2 on it in class. Loved not having to carry my heavy laptop around and still be able to type into powerpoint and word docs. Definitely a great addition to the TX for email with wifi. It folds up to just slightly larger than the palm itself and is a full size keyboard when you open it up for use.

    The best keyboards are the ones that pull out from the side, as you can actually type without pressing extra buttons.

    The best example of this is the Cingular 8125 Pocket PC or its equivalent with other companies.
