There is a marketing terra incognito between Phone/PDAs and ultraportable notebooks into which exploratory forays seem to disappear forever: it is the form factor of no return, better known as “UMPC with a keyboard”. The HTC Athena X7500 hopes to conquer this undiscovered country and become its King.
Elikson, a UK company just introduced this keyboard that has driver support for Palm, Symbian, Blackberry and Windows Mobile. The Wireless Fabric Keyboard provides a 63 key Qwerty layout and measures 306mm x 114mm and operates on two AAA batteries that should last 10 hours. It rolls up and stores in a small, drawstring bag. It sells for 40 pounds in the UK. No word on whether it will be released in the US.
