If you are looking for another keyboard for BB, than I would recommend to check the CoolMIR keyboard from It is not a bluetooth keyboard, but instead uses a cable to connect to the BlackBerry.

While this is not my favorite BlackBerry keyboard, it is still a workable device. There are some issues involved with connecting the device to your BlackBerry, but most of these are due to RIM’s restriction of keystroke injection. This can be configured on the 4.1 handheld OS devices and on a 4.0 or newer BES server. But these restrictions would apply to virutally any external keyboard.

There is a key that simulates the trackwheel click. It’s the Target key (white circle with a dot) located to the right of the delete key. The sluggish response issue can be helped by setting the Repeat Rate to a value of around 10 and the Repeat Delay to a value of around 15. You may need to tweak these for your individual device/typing speed.

Finally, another keyboard recommendation would be the Shasta BlackBerry keyboard by Think Outside. It tends to be more responsive and has larger keys that are the same size as a standard laptop keyboard.

Has anyone had a security issue with this BlueTooth keyboard? My company will not turn on the event injector to allow because of security concerns.
