"Cnet dummies? If they only knew BT from a hole in the ground..."4.5 starson by dewild1
Pros: It is small, works at 30 WPM after adjusting sensitivity.
Cons: It has typos every now and then.
Summary: Man, I can not believe these guys who wrote this..
Bluetooth sucks. Broadcomm will not support, or deal with, or sell new updates for their BT software.. Microsoft has not supported it too.
All the different BT stacks out there for PPC, (except for the one on the new MS 2005 Windows Mobile OS that has not been "officially" released and the new ROM for the MPX300 that came out in Feb AND the O2 XDAIIi AKA http://www.expansys-usa.com/product.asp?code=PDA2&asource=IMATE), do not support BT serial ports very well. They use a dynamic serial port. In order for any device like a printer or GPS to work right, it needs it's own serial port.
If the guys at cnet who wrote this used a newer stack or maybe even deleted all their BT devices and tried it again, they would get it to work... But to give such a bad report for such a good device based SOLELY upon their incompetence.. Well, that is just wrong.
Yes the device has typos, even after you fine tune it through the sensitivity settings, but, look at what you are getting in exchange.. A laser keyboard that fits into your pocket..
They may have gotten it to work on Palm.. But who cares. Palm sucks.
