CARLSBAD, CALIF. -Think Outside, a supplier of products for use in mobile computing and wireless communication, has teamed with Anaheim, Calif.-based Targus Inc., a maker of portable storage products, to announce availability of the Stowaway Portable Keyboard for Hewlett-Packard's Jornada 540 series.
The Stowaway is a full-size keyboard that folds to pocket size and allows users to take advantage of native support for Microsoft Word, Excel, and the Outlook messaging and collaboration client while on the road. The keyboard is the first in a series of Pocket PC portable keyboard solutions.
