I'm looking for an inexpensive external keyboard for my new (used) HX2190, I can't find an easy way to tell which keyboards are compatible... can somebody suggest some ideal products to look out for?
Are generic ipaq keyboards along the lines of this applicable? Sorry I'm absolutely clueless and don't want to make expensive mistakes!
Bluetooth/IR wireless doesn't bother me, folding would be preferable but if they're extortionate I'll have to forgo this.

I would look at the drivers for the keyboard and verify that they support the version of Windows Mobile that your device supports.
Generally IR is difficult to use bcause you have to have line of sight to the IR port. So Bluetooth works well except it requires pairing and batteries. _________________ Chris De Herrera
