Brando Super-tiny Keyboard
« on: December 15, 2008, 04:10:53 pm »
I still love the Z because of its keyboard and it remains my preferred device for on-the-go computing; my n800 is really used as a web browser and rss reader, and occasionally a media player. I'd like to make my N800 more useable, so I took advantage of Brando's free shipping season and bought a super-tiny keyboard (which will also work with the Z, but that's a bit pointless!)

That IS small! Now all you need is some duct tape, and you've got an SL-CN800

I actually thought that the USB cable was a trackpoint initially (which would make the KB all the cooler)...

--edit-- correct URL here. Thanks for CapnFish for pointing out the mistake without making me feel too dumb!

I just got one of the brando mini keyboards for my tosa  and am not finding the tab or underscore.  Any clues?  It is model no. 008, "smallest mini keyboard for pc."

thanks,

I searched brando for that term and also browsed their keyboards but couldn't find 008.

Anyway, try different international keyboard maps, it's likely to be in the US settings.

Hmmm, I'm not sure what those maps are, but I'll try googling to find out.

But playing around a lot more, I did find the undersscore and the arrow key combinations.

Fn + H + numlock = underline

Fn + . = up arrow

Fn + [ = left arrow

Fn + ] = down arrow

Fn + \ = right arrow

But thanks, will look for those maps.  sdjf
