    One of these bluetooth keyboards sold earlier today on eBay for US$172.50 + US$27.35 shipping for a total of US$199.85. Wow, that's incredible!

    There are still people who want one (myself included). I draw the line at those high prices for a used item (and how well used?)
    What I don't quite understand is that the Canadian chain The Source still sells them out of their stores for about $65. CAN. Different locations have some, other locations have none.
    They will NOT ship them to the US, which is disappointing. Believe me, I tried. I spent the better part of one day on the phone to stores all over English speaking Canada.

    It's supply and demand. I didn't know there were any left in existance, I've been looking and kicking myself for not getting one in the first place.
    Gonna have to check with my Kanadiun souce to see if he can grab me one.

    Thanks for letting me know they do still exist....

    I managed to snag one about a month ago on eBay. Open box, but new condition. Still had the removable plastic over the logo on the outside of the case and on the keyboard.

    I paid $120 including shipping, which I felt was very reasonable compared to what others have been going for.

    Worth every penny. The quality and functionality is fantastic.

    Hey Blackbartberry,

    I want one too! If you let me know which Source store has them in stock, I will gladly pick one up for you as well ... 65 + 10-15 to ship to the US. Let me know!

    The BlackBerry keyboard sold on ebay for 200 was listed as "new, in a sealed box". Too rich for my blood. Based on CB recos I bought instead an HP TouchPad keyboard and a Logitech V470 mouse. I'll post an update detailing my experience with this combination.

    Maybe one of our Canadian friends could purchase it for you and ship it. The reverse has been done by accommodating members. Although I don't know what the shipping charges would be.

    The BlackBerry Bluetooth Mini-Keyboard should work with the BlackBerry Z10 . I will try my keyboard and smartphone later.

    Update: The BlackBerry Bluetooth Mini-Keyboard is not recognised by the BlackBerry Z10 unless I've forgotten the correct procedure. This is not very encouraging because my Logitech V470 Bluetooth Mouse is recognised as is my BlackBerry PlayBook by my BlackBerry Z10 .

    I used mine for about a week, but then gave up. Maybe I should put it on eBay!

    That sounds like a good idea to me. You send me the keyboard and then I'll send you the money.
    Does anyone else see the problem here?

    For those that have used one, how is the typing "time"? I seem to type too fast for most bluetooth interfaced keyboards on the Playbook. I need speeds equal to what I have with my laptop.

    It works on my Z10, including the mouse. Turn on BT on the Z10, then turn on the keyboard while holding CTRL for pairing mode. The Z10 should recognize the keyboard periphery and tell you to type a certain code to pair. Make sure the Playbook's bluetooth is off while doing this. If it doesn't work after a few attempts, try deleting the keyboard from the Playbook.

    The keyboard works flawlessly on the Z10 while the mouse is a bit wonky, but still works for opening and closing apps and switching between frames. Some of the gestures do not work. I've also paired the keyboard to my iPad. The mouse of course does not work at all as the iPad does not support bluetooth mice, but the keyboard works fine. For an accessory that I can pair with three of my devices, it's fantastic.

    If I ever see one at a Source I will let you guys know.

    As for typing time, it depends on your fingers. It takes time to get used to it but now I am quite close to my laptop typing speeds. Note that I have relatively smaller hands for a dude.

    Are you talking about the lag they occurs between when you hit the keys and when the letters appear on your screen? If so that's non existent with the oem keyboard although it feels too small to really type much on

    I've enjoyed some good luck today! Found a BB mini keyboard on a discount shelf at The Source. I got it for 50% off and it's perfect! It really works great!

    The mini keyboard works well with both the PlayBook and Z10.
    I have not tried it with the Z30 yet.

    I tried the keyboard with the Z30 but the Z30 does not see it, although the PlayBook does and so did z10.
