- Very easy and not tiring to type with one's thumbs while on the go, and quite fast, although a bit awkward to type with multiple fingers. This keyboard type is a must-have for people with big thumbs, because the keys are small, hard and spaced apart and can be felt easier than laptop-style or bubble keys.

The Newton keyboard can be adapted to the HP 200LX adaptable keyboard (a custom program must be run, freely available, and a patch cable must be fabricated)
The Jordana 430SE keyboard can be adapted for the 200lx / HP Windows CE device ($140USD).
- Requires a standard serial port adapter (connectivity kit)
A "real" keyboard can be plugged into the HP Palmtop, which you can now do with the HP 95LX and Centronics new Dock 101 keyboard (won't work with all programs, some poll the palmtop keyboard. Also, this keyboard requires an AC outlet)
