It's ugly the photos on the site. The photos are huge too not even scaled down. Nice idea, but no thanks.

This thing looks terrible. I wonder what this dude is trying to get away with. It doesn't look durable either....

I think it looks like one of the best alternatives yet.

If you don't like it, don't buy it...

Not ugly

I think it looks pretty good for what it does. Of course I'd like to see other alternatives like it as well.

What is it with you people. How pretty is a KEYBOARD suppose to be ! !

Its a dual purpose product for your PDA, not a freaking fashion statement. Most people out there use their PDA's for their function, not styling. When you graduate high school and stop watching so much Mtv you might realize this some day.

Vx / Springboard...oops

D'oh! Wow, if it could do that, it would be pretty amazing, eh? No, I've just got to watch the cutting and pasting. Thanks.

Something removeable like this (not necessarily this particular model) is far better than the permanent kludgy, bulky solution on the NR series. Plus it allows for various vendors to try different solutions. Then each user can whatever keyboard they like or none at all.

Better than the fellowes case/kb combo!

I think that this is a pretty cool idea, weather it looks incredibly stylish or not does not matter as much to me as weather it works, is practical and easy to carry, I bought the 505 so as not to have a bulky pda yet most if not all of the cases out there (esp. the hard cases) add so much bulk that I tend to use the belt pouch instead. maybe this case would be worth the sacrifice of bulk, at the very least it offers more funcionality than the regular cases.

As to the styling... I find it an elegant solution, of course I would like to see a brushed aluminum version but the way it looks now, it does not seem to look any worse than most other regular black palm cases...

4 1/2 stars on first impressions alone I hope they come out with an m505 version soon.

I agree, if I had to carry both a PDA and a mini keyboard, this would be a good option. I prefer my PPK and keep it with me most of the time for heavy writing, but would hesitate to bring the PPK on a flight. Yes, it adds quite a bit in terms of thickness, but my PPK won't even FIT in my pants pocket. The only drawback for me would be for work; I would have to remove it to plug into a network switch for lan configurations.
