    Hey Nancy!

    This is the very first echomail using the bluetooth keyboard unwired into a 10" tablet. Much better than the virtual keyboard ... to say the least. It will take some getting used to but the standard features work just fine and my fat fingers have no issues finding the key they are looking for which is worth the additional cost.

    Life is good,
    Maurice

    Hallo Maurice!

    This is the very first echomail using the bluetooth keyboard
    unwired into a 10" tablet.

    Excellent. It looks good from this angle.

    Let us see how this looks -> A Møøse once bit my sister ...

    Make sure you quote it back ... but you probably already know that don't you?

    Het leven is goed,

    Looks good all around... :) I prefer real keyboards over virtual ones, myself.... :)

    And I'll quote it back for good measure, now that I got to this packet... ;)

    Perfect. As usual your editor 'knows'. For the record I once built a newer version of uEmacs for linux that was 64-bit and could display utf8 characters. I am going to try it again in the near future and see if it will also build and run on the tablet ... just for fun.

    Yet another experiment... ;) A potentially useful one, though... ;)
