Great Accessory
I am relatively new to the latest handheld computing OS (had an old Sharp Wizard). The PocketType has a nice key feel and the software option of a key sound is nice. The fact that it doesn't require additional batteries makes it very handy. After installing the software, it's ready to go! Most of the typical shortcuts are covered by the software already, and the scroll wheel comes in very handy to scroll your way through a page or paragraph, etc. The back supported design allows you to securely hold the PocketType and the Visor as one unit, so you can actually type without the need of a table or desk. The only drawbacks are that typing can be a problem for people who have large fingers and that not all commands are accessable on the PocketType, so you will still need a stylus to get to some screen buttons. Overall, it's a very convenient device and a well thought out design. I highly recommend it.

This thing Rocks!
I have tried several of the keyboards available for the Visor family, including the Fellowes pocket keyboard, the GoType, Thumboard, and SanpNType, but the best for use and functionality so far is the Kensington PocketType! The keys have a nice tactile feedback, helping me to ensure I have pressed them firmly, and the scroll wheel on the side definately makes reading E-Books much handier. Add the fact that it does not cover the graffiti area (an enhancement over the Thumbboard and Snap, IMHO), and the built in support that extends a third of the way up the back of the Visor, and you have the best of all worlds.
