Portable Keyboard

The numerous handheld computers now available make carrying information incredibly convenient but entering data on the tiny devices can get annoying. Relief is here: Palm Pilot fans now can carry along the collapsible Palm Portable Keyboard (www.palm.com); Handspring Visor owners can use the Stowaway Portable Keyboard (pictured above) from Targus (www.targus.com). Each product costs $99, weighs 7.9 ounces and opens to the size of a standard computer keyboard. Each folds up to about the size of the handheld: 3.6 inches by 5.1 inches.

To use either keyboard, place the handheld in the docking station and start typing. No extra cables or batteries are needed; the keyboard runs off the device’s power supply with minimal energy drain.
