One of the devices they'll be compatible with is the Toshiba E310.<br /><br />"Built in conjunction with the BenQ Corporation, who will be working with Belkin to bring this and other PDA input solutions to market, the G700 Series Portable PDA Keyboard is slated to be available for the following handhelds: Palm m500, m125, m130, and i705 series; Sony® CLIÉ T series; and the Toshiba e310 series. Set to start shipping on June 24th, the new G700 Series Portable PDA Keyboard should have an ESP of $79.99."<br /><br />The press release didn't have a photo of what the keyboard will look like, but I would expect it will be similar to the other models which BenQ is already producing (but this is pure conjecture on my part):<br /><br /><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/benqkey.jpg" /><br /><br />So, if you've got an e310 and have been eagerly awaiting the chance to really streamline composing documents or e-mail on your device, your wait may be almost over. As soon as we hear details about where you can get the keyboard, we'll let you know.

I wonder whether this is also the long awaited keyboard compatible with the e570. Does anyone know whether the docking connector is the same for all Toshiba Pocket PCs?

does anyone know if the keyboard will also work on the e740? I don't know if there is a difference between the 310 and the 740 as far as connections on the bottom.

I got an email 15 days ago from Belkin about the issue of e310 compatability. They claim that the Toshiba keyboard that they have out isn't compatable with the e310 because of the USB client-only interface. I'm currently seeking the permission to post the email (There was a "confidential" warning at the bottom of it!)
