    I bought a Microsoft 6000 bluetooth Keyboard. Also bought a cheap Bluetooth mouse.. The KB connects flawlessly.. the mouse is a bit sensitive (have to delete and research for it after I turn it off)

    I would highly reccomend the MS KB.. it is about 75% of full size and thin

    Good luck.

    I bought a keyboard that rolls-up for portability. It was made for the iPad and has some Apple keys that don't work. Sometimes the connection turns on/off if I touch the screen.

    Great if you need portability.

    It's a no-name and I threw-away the box. It should be in any 'store' in the iPad accessories section.

    RIM is putting out their keyboard for the pb soon. That should be high quality.

    At one time, there was rumors of an official Playbook keyboard being released by RIM. I think there was even a video posted on Crackberry showing it off. But havent heard anything more as to whether this is still going to be released.
    The Z10 will be my last BB phone; switching platforms.

    Default Bluetouth keyboard

    i saw a prototype of the PlayBook keyboard at a law enforcement show. i was told that it should be out early next year. it is the one used in the police car.

    There was a neat leather case that carried them together.

    I use the Palm 3245WW Bluetooth keyboard with my Playbook and it works well. I haven't used it for an extended amount of time, but it seemed to work well. It's not as widely available as some of the newer bluetooth keyboards, but i got it for $25 on craigslist and it's worked well with every device that supports the Bluetooth HID profile. The Playbooks looks like it might possibly be a little too heavy for the stand that's built into the keyboard, but it does rest on it just fine.

    I really like using this one, and it works perfectly with the PB, with all of the BBs in the family, and every other device I've tried it with, including my Bluetooth TV.

    I did test and use the HP Touchpad keyboard. I loaned my spare Playbook and that Keyboard to a client to test. After a couple of weeks, he bought a new Playbook and the keyboard from me.
