Springboard modules get most of the press, but the Visor also owes much
of its livelihood to general accessories which are available. Keyboards,
screen protectors, cables, etc. are all very valuable Visor products.
The winner of the General Accessory of the year needs to not only be useful,
but also demonstrate creativity and ingenuity in its design.
If there ever was a handheld product that could turn heads, it would
be the Targus Stowaway keyboard. This innovative product is a full
size QWERTY keyboard that folds neatly down almost to the size of the Visor
itself. Handheld computers are becoming more and more ubiquitous
in our everyday lives, and products like the Stowaway make lengthy documents
quicker and easier to enter into your handheld.
James: This is the perfect keyboard for students and businessmen
alike. I always hated taking notes during class because my hands
cramped, but with the Stowaway I was finally able to take notes quickly
and easily; students and corporate users can type in their notes quickly
and email them to others later.
Marcus: The WOW factor of this year's general accessory is remarkable. It's quite a sight when pulling the two sides apart and seeing a full-sized keyboard unfold. Perfect for taking notes or writing memos on the road, Targus' Stowaway is a great addition for any road warrior's
Honorable Mention: Landware
As with all things, Product A may be good for one person, while Product
B is more suitable for another. Such is the case for the Landware
GoType! Pro. It seems more durable than the Stowaway, and with a
lower price and excellent software, the GoType! Pro should be at the top
of any keyboard list.
