More on the Belkin Folding Keyboard
Last week, Belkin Components announced that they would begin shipping the Belkin Universal Portable PDA Keyboard at the beginning of July. This is a folding keyboard clearly intended to compete with the Think Outside Stowaway. More information on this keyboard is now available. When closed, it is 5.375 by 3.875 by 1 inch. It opens to be 11.25 by 3.875 by less than .5 inches. It weighs less than half a pound.
It will sell for $80 and comes with an adapter that allows it to be used with the Palm III, V, VII, and m100 series and IBM Workpad c3.
They are currently working on adding support for additional handhelds. Look for further announcements from the company some time this fall.
For comparison, the Stowaway is 5.1 by 3.5 by .80 inches when closed and opens to 13.8 inches wide. A bit of math shows that the Stowaway is smaller when folded and both weigh less than half a pound. However, the Stowaway does sell for about $20 more.
