external keyboard

Hello, after long time I came upon this site and I am very suprised with new models that are available or will be in short time. But is there any device which supports external keyboard and has text editor? At least something similar to notepad?
And the windows based devices - is it possible to upload custom windows mobile software there?
Thanks

The iRex iLiad supports a USB keyboard and has an editor.

I don't think any other mainstream EInk device has a USB port that supports a keyboard. Any upcoming device with Bluetooth could in principle provide keyboard support, and I think I read that the PocketBook 302 also supports USB keyboards (but this could be my misreading of a Google translation). See E-book Reader Matrix.

PocketBook 302 (based on upcoming Netronix model) will have USB host and will probably support USB keyboards.

How well does text editing on epaper work?

Seems like it would be too slow to keep up with an average user's typing speed.
