When I gt my T|T I sold my Stowaway in a bundle with my old m505. This was partly because I thought it was more saleable that way, and partly because there was no OS5 driver for the Stowaway at that time. When funds allowed I bought a Palm Ultra Thin keyboard to replace it. But I never got along with that: it was great folded but I tend to use a lot of punctuationa nd numbers, so the green and blue FN keys were very fiddly. Furthermore, I type badly and rest my left little finger on the edge of the keyboard, which made the Ultra Thin unstable. So to-morrow I swap the Ultra Thin for a traditional Stowaway. Is that a crazy, nostalgic decision? Or an admission that often the classic designs are the best?
