I would like to connect an external keyboard I have to my blackberry so that I can type on the keyboard and have it pump the data via the mini-usb to blackberry.
The keyboard is an Alphasmart Dana AlphaSmart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Question -- how do I go about writing a program for this? I am familiar with Java. I'm just looking for some pointers on general API's/classes that will need to be implemented for this.
To summarize -- I would like to connect the Dana keyboard via it's USB out to my blackberry 8330's mini usb plug. I would then like to open a program on the blackberry which will "listen" and capture all keystrokes coming from the USB into a notepad type document. Then I would like to be able to copy the text from that open "notepad" on the blackberry and simply paste it into whatever application.
Thanks for any help!
