Currently, most handhelds' solution for extensive text input is a stylus to tap with-or learning the 21st century's answer to hieroglyphics. Right. For serious, on-the-fly text input, the Targus Stowaway Keyboard ($99), is the perfect solution. Featuring the same size, feel and response as a notebook PC keyboard, the 8-ounce Stowaway folds up easily for transport in a pocket or purse. Bonus: Its built-in docking station eliminates the need for additional batteries or cabling to your handheld. It's available for Palm, Visor and Pocket PC platforms.
