A decent cheap bluetooth keyboard for the N95 8Gb?

I'm interested in getting a decent little bluetooth keyboard for my Nokia N95 8Gb (that hasn't been delivered yet!)... Do I need to go for the official Nokia one? (which is almost 80!) or can I get another one?

I'm looking for a decent study little keyboard... I'd like to hear from people who have brought one themselves, knows it works fine, and are really happy with it...

Anyone? Thanks!

I don't have any particular one in mind for you, but from looking around i see they are typically around $70 to $150 US. You don't not need an official nokia one, any bluetooth keyboard should work.

So anyone of them should work? That's cool... I was worrying I'd need to get a proper Nokia one. Cheers.

Has anybody got a bluetooth keyboard for their Nokia N95? Could somebody recommend me one? There are so many on the market, it'd be nice to have a decent recommendation.

I just purchased this one:

VERY good price and it works perfectly with the N95

Read review here:

Small tip for adapting the stand to fit the N95 perfectly in landscape:

If you buy, download the driver from here:

Just select N73 as your phone.

Also don't activate the Nokia Wireless Keyboard app, as the two will conflict.

Would this work on my PS3 too? The talk of drivers made me wonder if it's properly compatible

Hi all,

Well i have been using a SU-8W Bluetooth Keyboard for ages and with different devices whilst it may not be the cheapest it definitely is the best IMO. As once paired with your phone if you leave it running in the back ground and Bluetooth on you never need to touch the phone at all. It also unlike other bluetooth keyboards allows full navigation of your devcie and access to anything you want to do. Something i believe these other keyboards are just not capable of as always you tend to get what you pay for.

Marc

The iGo can also access most, if not all functions - and it locks in place so you can use it on your lap (doing it right now) something you can't do with the Nokia one.

I can access both softkeys, joystik center, application menu - no problem.

Also, should I ever change to another phone brand I can still use this keyboard in full since there are lots of drivers.

The quality is very high, and the keyboard has been a lot more expensive before - and still is at some retailers.

Yeah I currently have a little wireless keyboard but it's not bluetooth so has an ugly dongle poking out of the console flashing all the damn time.
My PSN is JackDusty so if you think of it before me, add me.
