Ok, the Palm Portable Keyboard is the same hardware as the Stowaway keyboard (by Think Outside) that we connected to the Newton oh so many years ago.


Although the physical connection of this particular adapter design might need to be modified depending on which version of the keyboard you are working with, the pinouts are the same. As long as you have Daniel Padilla’s Stowaway driver on the Newton, a Bluetooth connection should work. Theoretically, anyway.
