External Keyboard for NC

I know that Apple has external keyboards to use with the iPad. I think it would be a good idea to have one especially with the new apps. I know that it would be easier for me to take it to class since I'm still in college, but even for using to type anything since the keyboard on the NC can be kind of faulty. Has anyone heard of this or know how to put the idea across to B&N?

Re: External Keyboard for NC

Just to clear up I'm talking about an external keyboard for the Nook Color. Sorry it's 3 in the morning an just wanted to make sure. Here is a link to an example of what I'm talking about.

Re: External Keyboard for NC

Hi All- Not surprisingly, the external keyword was one of the top "asks" from users on Facebook and in the forums here right after the 1.2 Update.  I met with our product team a few weeks ago and shared this with them-- and they loved the idea! Stay tuned.

A collapsable one like the iGo Stowaway would be great!

Re: External Keyboard for NC

I recently won (2) iGo Stowaway folding Bluetooth keyboards and would like to sell one of them.  Item is used but in perfect working order.  I just used it this evening with my Nook Color and an LG Optimus phone.

 

Here is a link to a CNET review of the item:

Add me to the list of folks who would love an external keyboard for the NC.  Do keep us all posted please!

I wish I could make a fair offer right now--it's a dead sexy keyboard, but I'd be a fool to drop even $50 on toys right now, and you'd be fool to take such an offer.
