Default Freedom Input Keyboard - FAO Storm Owners

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there

I currently have a Storm 2 9520 and i'm looking for an external keyboard for it - so far all i can find is the Freedom Input Bluetooth Keyboard and the CoolMIR wired keyboard. I can discount the CoolMIR option as its not supported for Storm 2 users.

How are you guys finding the Keyboard? Is it comfortable to type on? Does it still access programs using the keys like you would on a QWERTY BB to access apps via letter shortcuts? What is the lag time now like?

I could only find a thread explaining that the lag between you typing and what you've written appearing on the screen is a considerable amount of seconds. I'd like to hear what you all think before i go commiting to this as 90 is a lot of money for something that has had usability issues (judging by the look of things on these forums and/or via Google)

Cheers

i have the keyboard and i HAD the 9500 storm i did have some issues setting up the keyboard but once i got the correct driver installed everything was pretty much working and all the short cuts worked. an
d typeing on it was great if you want to use your blackberry as a serious email tool then it will def help i had no problem typing up 2-3 pages of emails in one email. thats how good it was .
