            Just ordered three different ones.....
            Eventually I would like to have a mini itx form factor size keyboard slide out of the bottom of the car pc, but I doubt I can find a drawer/slide to that spec, much less a keyboard like that
            thanks for your help

            Ill let you know

              You could always fabricate a drawer with smoked plexi to mount it to.

              Also, I'm trying to find a backlit, small, keyboard. IE: not unlike the ones we had in our old cruisers before we switched to mobile solutions.

                I like the keyboard that I got for the simple fact that it's got a mouse pointer with it. It's got a pretty small foot print and it's wireless. Only drawback I can think of is that it's IR. Still works perfectly for me.

                  Passed over this keyboard.
                  http://www.ergonomicsmadeeasy.com/in...PROD&ProdID=37

                  Small, hotkeys and a joystick.

                  I was thinking about a place to mount a keyboard and this idea struck me.
                  Since this keyboard is only about 1.1" tall and 5.6" wide I think it might be possible to mount it on a track and swivel. Provided you have the depth in the dashboard it'd a space-saving, and slick solution.

                      I have a SAMSUNG Ultra Mobile PC Q1 USB Keyboard. It is small and comes with a stick mouse that is not bad. It is USB. NewEgg sells them for for $95.99. Bought mine with the Q1 for $75. Still too expensive.

                      I have been experimenting with a Nokia Bluetooth wireless folder keyboard (SU-8W) that is also nice. Nice thing is it works with my Smartphone. Got it at a close out price of $49.90 something. It is not a full 101 or 89 key keyboard. It is discontinued, so you might be able to pick it up on the cheap.

                            Man, that would be exactly what I am looking for if it just had a small trackball or touchpad. Does nyone know of a usb mini keyboard with builtin mouse 'capabilities'?

                            I hate the wireless. Everytime I have to use one, I always forget to periodically check the batteries and they're always dead when you need it most......

                              Sharkoon Mini RF Keyboard with Trackball & Multimedia Keys

                              Hi All,

                              I've been looking for a keyboard with the following characteristics:

                              1) Mini Keyboard (small footprint)
                              2) Mouse / Touchpad / Trackball including buttons/scroll
                              3) Wireless RF or Bluetooth (I'm not keen on IR)
                              4) Optionally some Multimedia Keys

                              and of course Cost and Australian availability are big factors too. Anyway, I've just found the following keyboard on eBay and it seems to meet most (if not all) of the top 4 criteria:

                              eBay - Sharkoon Mini RF Keyboard with Trackball & Multimedia Keys

                              It's not exactly cheap (AUD $150+ including a whopping 40 Euro in shipping), but the real issue is that it's all in German !! Anyone on here speak/translate German ? Whilst it's probably 5x more than what I could probably spend, if it ticks all the boxes, i'd still consider it given the right advice.

                              Keen to hear what you guys think ? Especially if you're German.

                              Cheers,

                              Long.1
