    Just wondering if anyone has heard anything about a keyboard being developed for the iPod Touch so that it can be used for word processing or for the Notes Application (a la PDAs). As a student, I think that would be immensely useful.

    Any thoughts or opinions?

    Thanks for reading!

    You'd want a fold up QWERTY keyboard. Google it.

    A keyboard would make the touch amazing! hopefully someone will create a way for it to work, because Apple certainly will not support it. I was hoping the iphone would have the bluetooth profile for a keyboard but not even that. Apple is locking lots of stuff down, just cause they can. It's sad because they're purposely crippling their device so they can say ooh look it's updated in a future model

    Don't post in old threads. The original poster has already explained that he has found what he needed.
