Default App to use desktop keyboard as passthrough?

Please Login to Remove!

There used to be a package for the Newton MessagePad calld Newton Connection Utilities.

(Interestingly enough, the GUI for today's Blackberry Desktop Manager looks a lot like it, because they both licensed Intellisync technology.)

There was a feature of NCU that let you use the desktop computer's keyboard to type on the Newton's screen. It made updating notes or contacts on the fly much simpler.

Does anybody know if there's anything like this functionality for the Blackberry?

There are some new Bluetooth (wireless) keyboards that work with the newer BBs (including the 7100t you have pictured). Check out the Bluetooth Connection forum where I think there are several threads about BT keyboards. I am not aware of anything that will allow your desktop keyboard to work with your BB.
