Wireless Keyboards for Smart Phones

This tip is provided by Diane Ebersole with the State Bar of Michigan's Practice Management Resource Center.

Are you among the many users of smart phones who would create more documents on your phone if you had a full size keyboard to use with the phone? Are you using an application like Documents to Go but find yourself frustrated by the keyboarding process? Could you leave your laptop at home and just use your phone as your computer if you could only key in text using more than your opposable thumbs? Take a look at these options and see if there is a solution for you.

Apple Wireless Keyboard for the iPhone: http://www.apple.com/keyboard/

Jeff Richardson, author if the iPhone J.D. blog, has a good review of this keyboard at http://www.iphonejd.com/.

The keyboards for Verizon Droid from The Pocket Solution look promising, but be sure to read the info under Important Please Read! http://www.thepocketsolution.com/PSI-62901.html

Another option is a flexible (roll-up soft touch) keyboard available from http://www.wetkeys.com.

If you can wait a few months the Jorno keyboard (folds up to the size of a deck of cards) option from https://jornostore.com might be worth waiting for. It is available for pre-order now and delivery in January.

If these keyboards seem like they may be a useful tool for your practice on the go, do some shopping and be sure to check the specs for compatibility and power requirements.

Does anyone remember that Targus made a great little fold-up keyboard that was cutting edge at the time for Palm devices? That is ancient history, but the setup was the envy of everyone who saw it!
