David asked about keyboards -has anyone checked out the new folding keyboard
for palms?

any idea whether it could be adapted to work with a newt?

the connector is different, but if a socket as used on palm could be found,
a lead could be made up leading to a din8 plug, to go to newt's
interconnector block dongley thing?

any ideas, hardware newt dudes?

best wishes
