External keyboard

I realize that it may sound crazy, but are there any options to connect an external keyboard to Sony PRS-700? I like the notes option, but it would be so much easier to use a real keyboard if necessary.

Like Andybaby says, it's probably not going to happen. There would have to be an extensive firmware rewrite for it to accept an USB external keyboard which would probably have to be sold by Sony and it seems unlikely that they venture along those roads when the PRS 700 already has an input way via the on screen keyboard.

Sad, but that is ok. Do you know if there are any ways to suggest Sony some updates for their firmware? (Fixed zoom, continuous view - nothing too fancy)

best ways would probably be

Call tech support, and suggest some features, Make sure you get someone who knows what your talking about

writing a Letter, A real Letter, with postage and every thing. and send it to Sony of Americas main office addressed to the CEO, or if you can, find the head of the Specific Ereader Division

Thanks! Do you know if any of these options actually worked?
