    Psion Handheld PC used with CarPC?

    Could a Psion Handheld (any of the models) be used as a keyboard (or any navigation) when connected to a CarPC? I got the idea a few minutes ago, and haven't been able to find any good information on them... And yes, I it...
    Does anyone have one? And how well do they function?
    Thanks...

    In theory anything COULD work...simple fact is the amount of knowledge it would take to make it work usually exceeds that possesed by those asking the question...if you knew how to make it work, you'd know if it could or not.

    Most of the time, standalone devices like that don't make good input devices, since there isn't an easy point to intercept the input, and, unless some genius already did it for you, you'd have to be a genius to get any functionality out of the screen. I'd suggest checking out the 'input devices' forum for some more practical (and similarly sized) keyboard options.
