Drivers allow IR keyboards to be used with Symbian smartphones
The author created drivers that allow the use of the Pocketop and the Palm Wireless Keyboard (Think Outside) with Symbian Series 60 smartphones (like the Nokia 3650, 7650 and N-Gage) phone. There's also a version for the Symbian UIQ (Sony Ericsson P800 / P900).

According to the source, operation is fairly complete. It uses the system autorepeat. Handles keydown and keyup events where appropriate, which allows key-hold actions to work; i.e. holding down Applications button to get to Task List. While the driver is "on" it keeps the IrDA port open.
