Default Think Outside Announces Bluetooth Support for Windows Mobile 5.0

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.thinkoutside.com/company/pressrelease/windows%20mobile%20complete.pdf' target='_blank'>http://www.thinkoutside.com/company...%20complete.pdf</a><br /><br /></div><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/web/2003/wey-20051014-ThinkOutside.gif" /><br /><br />Think Outside has just released a digitally-signed enhanced keyboard driver that supports Windows Mobile 5.0. With the Stowaway Universal Bluetooth Keyboard and the driver, Windows Mobile 5.0 users will have the option to use the Stowaway Bluetooth Travel Mouse in conjunction with the keyboard, as well as make use of a new shortcut utility that allows users to find key combinations that produce alternate characters and symbols. The updated driver can be downloaded from <a href="http://www.thinkoutside.com/support/download.asp?did=22&pid=9&link=/support/Download%20Support/PPC/En/dr/Think%20Outside%20PPC%20En.zip">here</a>.

Hmm, I always thought it was a no-brainer. However, this is all good news. I use the mouse and keyboard with my iPAQ 5550. People always are amazed when I use it.

It's really funny. The picture shows FJ N520, which has no bluetooth.

I may be wrong.

I am not sure now. N520 hard buttons have the same color as body color. It may be a new PPC device.

I'm not sure if this is the thread for this but I have to ask.

I was looking at buying a keyboard for my x50v but this doesn't have the infamous top numbers row. But at the moment I'm using the HP bluetooth keyboard (with all the keys ) with my hp4150. Since I'm looking for a keyboard for the x50v I was wondering if anyone new of any bluetooth drivers for the Dell? I haven't upgraded to WM5 as of yet but I'm looking for any driver info on either of the versions.

Jeff-

It's not the N520, and for the record, the picture has nothing to do with this post. I just included because it had a Think Outside keyboard in it. 8)

It's the PL720. ThinkOutside has been using this for more than half a year.

Default Funny...

...why doesn´t Thinkoutside develop and test their drivers properly before embarking into newer OS supports or other marketing moves ? :confused totally: :confused totally: :confused totally:
I am stating this because their latest driver version (4.2) for PPC 2003 is absolutely unstable on my Ipaq 2215 and other models, as you can easily confirm on Thinkoutside´s forums under "Secure reconnection" topic.

4.2 has caused problems on WM2003SE problems too; I've also dongraded back to 4.1 after constantly running into them on my PL720.
