Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard drivers available for Palm OS devices
Think Outside Inc. has just released additional drivers for the Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard (read our review). The new release includes version 3.0 for Palm Bluetooth, adding a new platform to the list of supported operating systems, which already includes Windows Mobile Pocket PC (picture, with Stowaway Bluetooth Mouse) and Symbian.

"Bluetooth is the obvious way to connect a keyboard, but until now Palm users were constrained to IR or connected keyboards," said Bill Ray, contributing editor of Wireless Business and Technology Magazine. Mr. Ray wrote his first book, "Professional Mobile Java Development", while commuting on the London Underground using Think Outside's first portable keyboard. "With the addition of Palm OS support, Treo users no longer have to peck at bumps on their integrated keyboard when typing long emails or memos. They can now choose to sit down and compose an email on a proper keyboard or use their integrated keyboard when they're on the go; it's all about mobility and flexibility and having the right tool for the job at hand," continued Mr. Ray.

The company is also planning to release a beta version of its new driver for Windows Mobile Smartphone within the next 30 days. This new driver will support the most popular Smartphone devices including the Motorola MPX220, i-mate SP3 and SP3i, Audiovox 5600, o2 XphoneII, DoPod 565 and Qtek 8010. The driver will also work with its installed base of Bluetooth keyboards.

In addition, the company also released an upgraded Pocket PC driver, version 4.2. The improvements include integrated support for Think Outside's Stowaway Bluetooth Mouse (read our review), multiple language support (including English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Simplified Chinese and Japanese) and over the air (OTA) transfer firmware upgrade.
