Did you own a foldable keyboard for your PDA?

Look what I found! from the ashes, this is my Targus Stowaway Foldable Keyboard compatible with the Handspring Visor series. I think I bought this in 2001 and used it with a Visor Deluxe wihch I then upgraded to a second hand Visor Prism (with 16-bit color!).

The foldable keyboard was an engineering marvel back in the day and not too many people owned one. Did you own a foldable keyboard for your Palm / Windows Mobile device? I remember this cost around PHP 3,500.00 or so with this particular model tough to get as there weren’t as many Handspring devices compared to Palm in Manila.

Was dreaming of this set up, a PDA and foldable keyboard back then. Good thing tech products are now more affordable compared before.

I have 2 of those, my 1st one was also a targus exclusive for my Jornada. It looks almost exactly the same as your photos. The 2nd one is a generic which I bought in Singapore for my XDA II. Both are now retired is still working but stowed away somewhere.
