Default external keyboard for 8310 and word processing

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I'm a newbie and I'm looking for an external keyboard for my 8310. I've found both the Advantage Universal bluetooth keyboard and the flexible mini-usb keyboards, but neither list the 8310 as being a compatible handheld. I called up the manufacturer of the usb keyboard (my preference) and they uttered the famous last words of computing "it should work" -- they told me that they haven't tested it with the 8310 yet. I want to use this keyboard for word processing and I've also heard that the word mobile version for blackberries is buggy (it didn't come with my 8310, at least I don't think it did) but I haven't spent much time researching this. Any help on using a 8310 for word processing with an external keyboard would be appreciated. BTW, this won't be for heavy duty work, I've got an ultraportable for that. cheers, g2
