It depends on the keyboard. Some wired keyboards will work out of the
box. I personally use a logitech wireless keyboard (non-blue tooth). I
plug in the transceiver to the N800 and it works without any extra
power. The keyboard has its own batteries. Others have reported
success with small USB keyboards.

It is very useful for remember, even with the virtual keyboard, and to
browse files. It is better, IMO, than its own file editors.
