Palm Device Internal Connector
Disclosed is a system designed to allow the input of data into a personal digital assistant (PDA) via a laptop or desktop keyboard. One major issue that PDA users have with the pervasive devices is that input into these devices can be cumbersome using a stylus. To expedite input into these PDAs, keyboards have been developed which can be attached to the PDA device. Unfortunately, these devices require for the external keyboard to be carried around. The proposed system will involve the creation of new keyboards which have an internal, interchangeable connector built into them (to support different models . This connector will be connected to the PDA device. The setup will allow for the desktop/laptop to be turned off while one inputs data into the PDA. Power for the keyboard can be taken from the PDA device as is currently done with dedicated PDA keyboards. Also, a rechargeable battery setup might be existing in the laptop/desktop keyboard which allows for keyboard operation to and from the PDA device without the laptop/desktop machine being turned on.
