Good and bad news from Nokia: Strong Series 60 moves. Two new Series 60 devices, 6260 (http://press.nokia.com/PR/200406/948876_5.html) with flip, due Q3 2004; 6630 (http://press.nokia.com/PR/200406/948877_5.html) (Charlie) WCDMA, EDGE, or old-school GSM/GRPRS, due Q4 2004; Bluetooth keyboard (http://press.nokia.com/PR/200406/948873_5.html) only works with latest devices (7610, 6630, 6260); Significant Series 60 improvements (http://press.nokia.com/PR/200406/948862_5.html) - more resolutions, QWERTY keyboard, WCDMA, CDMA, IP-SEC and VPN support, 3D and SVG graphics. Bad news, very muted on 7700 which appear to have slipped to being a technology demonstrator, and the 9500 appears to be drifting into the enterprise wilderness.

...which I already posted over 2 hours before you did...
Indeed you did, but seeing as neither Rafe, Ewan, or I (or the other minor-deities) were around earlier on, there was no easy way of getting the info onto All About Symbian's front page.
It's there now, and Rafe has fleshed the details out for the individual phones, happier? :-)

"including the Nokia 7610 phone which began shipping this month, and the Nokia 6630, and Nokia 6260 phones, both announced today."
The "including" sort of suggests it works with other series 60 phones aswell.
We can hope it'll work with other phones, but there's nothing explicit yet :-(
From the Nokia Wireless Keyboard FAQ (http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,,59078,00.html):
Q: What Nokia phone models are compatible with the Wireless Keyboard?
A: Compatible phones at launch include the Nokia 7610, Nokia 6260 and Nokia 6630 mobile phones. In the future more phones may be added to this list.
So not too positive for existing phone models. I don't think any previous series 60 phones have a Bluetooth HID profile.

I'm sure that if Nokia wants they could make it available as a third party driver.Stowaway BT Keyboard (http://www.thinkoutside.com/products/stowaway-bt.html)
