ZIRE 72 S - Keyboard

By mtorres7 ·
PDA ZIRE 72

Is there any adapter to connect a Palm m500 keyboard to a Zire 72 S ?
I recently installed the software version of the Zire 72, over the previous Palm m500 installation. The Zire 72 is hanging when using some of the applications (games, notes, etc.)
I have noticed that some games of the previous, Palm, displayed black and white.
I have hard-reset the Zire, and made a Hotsync to reload all my data, but still hangs.

1) I am not aware of an adapter that allows a Zire 72S to use a
keyboard that is designed to mechanically connect with the Palm
m500; there is a keyboard that communicates via IrDA that can
be used with any Palm OS handheld with an IrDA port.

2) The Palm m500 can run under Palm OS 4.x; the Zire 72S can
run under Palm OS 5.x. ( see <http://tinyurl.com/5ykdx> )
Software that is "optimized" for one or the other will not reliably
run under both. Check for updates to those applications that are
hanging.

1) There is no adapter that I am aware of that allows a Zire 72s
to use a keyboard designed to mechanically connect with a Palm
m500. There are also OS version issues...(see below)

2) The Palm m500 runs under Palm OS 4; The Zire 72s under
Palm OS 5 (see <http://tinyurl.com/5ykdx&gt

Any software optimized for either OS 4 or OS 5 will not reliably
run under both. Check for updates to those applications that are
misbehaving.
