AFAIK the Apple BT keyboard, is a standard BT HID device. I tested it
myself against my cell phone. I also tested that weird laser keyboard,
but it requires some setup-configuration to work properly and AFAIK
the config client is windows only. I have a thinkoutside BT HID
profile keyboard and it works fine with my n800. I even have a
nonstandard 'freedom' BT keyboard, but i saw that it can be added with
some mucking about in xmodmap i think.

A 'real' USB keyboard could be added, you need to flip the usb into
host mode - which can be done in debug mode. The problem is it needs
to be externally powered. The n800 does not have the USB power line
connected - probably because it was designed as a client device.

I would be interested in playing with emacs and org on an n800 as
well, but without a keyboard, i just don't see it being any use.
