    I'd assume that any bluetooth keyboard would work but I honestly can't say for sure one way or another. I bought the moto bluetooth keyboard for the xoom and I've generally been satisfied with it. Had some minor annoying issues here and there; I.E., spamming a letter or something endlessly or a bit of lag here or there but nothing too terrible. My biggest complaint is I wish the on/off were a switch not just a rather sensitive button -- on the flip side, I bought both my xoom and my keyboard on release date and I haven't yet had to change the battery even with the sensitive on button. The preceeding message was type with the keyboard. I'd also look into "Thumb Keyboard (Phone/Tablet)" -- some people swear by it and it does make typing a lot easier if you type with your thumbs, def a big help in portrait mode. Worth the dollar and some change...

    Thanks. I am using thumb keyboard and it's okay. But want a physical keyboard too. May go by Verizon store today to look at the Moto keyboard.

    The Moto Keyboard is nice, they had one set up with the Xoom at my Verizon Store.

    I too have the Xoom dedicated keyboard, and I really like it. Paid for it the same time I bought the xoom and got a 25% discount. Works great, does not have the lag like some are reporting. I am using wifi @ home thru Comcast 8 meg.


    Carol .. if you make the trip to Verizon, ask if they still have the 25% discount on the xoom accessories. I think you will have to buy at least two (not hard to do) I suggest the standard dock to go with the keyboard and you can charge the xoom with it also (comes with a wall charger too)

    The "lag" people talk about is not really with the bluetooth keyboard (I have one also, love it BTW!) it's inherent in the Xoom browser. As for that docking station, I wish I would have waited and seen the "multimedia dock" that has speakers included so you get better sound and they actually face you versus the embedded Xoom speakers that face backwards. You also can hook the HDMI cable up to that dock. IMHO it's a better option than the standard dock. (This is also a Motorola branded device, not aftermarket)

    Don't buy the moto keyboard from verizon if you want to save $10. They charge $79.99 compared to the $69.99 at Best Buy and Motorola.
