hi guys and gals,
im intested in getting a small keyboard for the 9 now, ive just noticed they are now selling a i-tampax bluetooth keyboard, has anyone tried one yet?
Now i dont like overpriced apple macs or anything i-crappy but i must admit that the keyboards that are made for the apples are fantastic. i use a full size one on my pc and its a dream to type with, the keyboard they are selling for the ipad looks very similar to the full sized one but at double the price.
cheers
roy

Hello,

Just paired this one (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... K:MEWNX:IT) with my brand new A9 yesterday.

Works great!

Regards,

Miguel

I have the diNovo and Rii Mini and have to say the BT option in the diNovo makes it take the cake. Although I have a port replicator for the A9, I prefer to not use peripherals with it that require an added dongle for use. As soon as you open the diNovo clam shell it connects to the A9 within seconds. I have yet to recharge it in 2 weeks as I use it sparingly for multimedia use. I haven't used my Rii yet since buying it.

Is it possible to use the Rii Mini with a USB cable? I am thinking of use on an aeroplane.
TIA

I found a local retailer who sells mini bluetooth keyboards, I think I might swing by there tomorrow, and buy one. They're less than 40 bucks, so it's worth a try.

@ Mal

I've been using the Rii for almost a year now and I love it. I haven't tried connecting it via USB but I'm pretty sure its not possible. That's not a problem though since the battery lasts quite a long time.

I have both of these for my media center computers, both are big, sturdy and good for lots of writing (not like the small keyboards) and include the mice!!! Around 50 Ôé¼.
Shame is it is wireless, not bluetooth, so you must use the USB receiver.
