It appears the newton keyboard is backwards compatable with generic serial=
 ports. This is promising as it goes for adapting other keyboards to fit a=
 newton. Palms just have a serial port on the bottom of them... that's=
 where their keyboards attach. There are also adapters and drivers to make=
 them work on HP200lx's, and 1.x newtons.

the question is, what tells the newton that there is a serial keyboard=
 there...... (thinks about dongles..)

There are a few keyboards on ebay as we speak... so they are still=
