I found one I thought would work, based on on-line reviews, took a chance (it was under $30, so it wasn't a huge chance) and it works.

The keyboard is the Targus AKB33USX. It syncs up with the GP 5's Gingerbread O/S quite well. The only quirk of any note is the lack of function of the "Delete" key ("Backspace" works fine). Otherwise, it works well for every task I've put it to.

I hope by vacation time (this coming Spring) I will have a NoteTouch (Note without cellular) or a Galaxy Player 5 inch plus and I will remember this keyboard.
