Which Stowaway keyboard for the TH55?
      #11820 - 06/07/04 02:32 AM

Hi,
Anyone have experience with which Stowaway folding keyboard is compatible with the TH55?

At the Sony site, the Sony PEGAKB100 is listed as compatable with the PEG-NR70, PEG-NR70V, PEG-NX60, PEG-NX70V, PEG-NX73V, PEG-NX80V, PEG-SJ20, PEG-SJ22, PEG-SJ30, PEG-SJ33, PEG-SL10, PEG-T415, PEG-T615C, PEG-T665C, PEG-TG50, PEG-TH55 , PEG-TJ25, PEG-TJ27, PEG-TJ35, PEG-TJ37.

The Fellowes site is less specific and just mentions that model #90186 is "compatible with all Sony Clie NR, NZ, SL, SJ and T series handheld computers". Am I safe in assuming that all, say NR series PDAs, share the same connector?

The Sony keyboard lists at $149 Canadian. The Fellowes is a less expensive alternative. Any advice on not getting the 90186?

Thanks, -Tony

No driver for TH55 keyboard? Isn't driver common for Palm OS? [Re: tonyw]
      #11845 - 06/07/04 07:24 PM

Some follow-up: I received the following from Fellowes Tech Support. Are there separate drivers for each model of PDA? Isn't it the same PRC file for Palm OS based units? Confused. Anyone using a keyboard on a TH55? -Thanks.

Thank you for your interest in Fellowes products. The Stowaway XT keyboard
(#90188) is Compatible with the following Sony Cli? models: NR70, NR70V,
NX60, NX70, SL10, SJ22, SJ33, SJ35, T400, T415, T425, T600, T610, T625, TJ35
and TG50 models.
At this time we have no drivers that allow the keyboard to
function on the TH55.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

Fellowes Technical Support

Response from Think Outside re: connector style keyboards and TH55 [Re: tonyw]

Another update,
I received a definitive answer from Think Outside, makers of Stowaway keyboards:

"On 6/10/04 Thursday 15:00 (PST), Support wrote:

The TH-55 will only work with our NON connector style keyboards.. IR and BT.

Have a good day

".


So seems for the TH55 the options for full sized keyboard are a Sony KB100 keyboard ($149CDN) or an IR keyboards ($99CDN). Or a BT keyboard if across the pond.
