Stowaway for Palm a $99 keyboard throwaway

Bags of stuff from Targus

CeBIT 2000 Targus, maker of bags to OEMs and the rest of us, acquired a firm called Port a couple of years back and wants to sell a range of add-ons for notebooks and PDAs as well as the things that hold them. Just nosing around the stand, we discovered that the firm will release a foldaway keyboard, only a little larger than the Palm itself. This ingenious little number will cost around $99 and be available in May,in Europe, although the company didn't really want us to talk about it until then. Never mind, we have. Targus also has a neat little device which is like a universal power supply for different notebooks, and has a set of pin-ins for Toshes, ThinkPads and others. The same nice Targus chap who pre-announced his Stowaway, said that the firm was developing a large number of other pins for use with mobile phones, digital cameras and the whole world and dog. That should cut down the number of cables we've had to cart to SnowBIT with us. He was very interested in the Intel Developer Forum bag we were toting and complimented the firm on its bag architecture... ®
