1. Using Your BlackBerry > 21. Type on a Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard

Type on a Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard

For those long emails, use this fold up Bluetooth keyboard to crank ‘em out quicker than the best thumb typist.

While there are all types of tricks included in the BlackBerry operating system to make you type quickly with your thumbs, nothing can compare to the speed of a full size keyboard. For Bluetooth enabled BlackBerry devices, you can use a full size keyboard that makes composing those long, well thought out emails a breeze. Not only does the keyboard allow for quick typing on your BlackBerry, but you can also set up hotkey combinations that spawn certain applications.

The keyboard is made by a company called Freedom Input and costs $99. It is available for purchase at the following URL: http://www.eaccess-estore.com/store/catalog.asp?item=199. The keyboard is compact and sleek. It’s not a whole lot larger than your device when it’s folded up. When it is unfolded, your device sits on a small stand that slides out of the top right side of the keyboard as shown in Figure 1-62.
