Finally took the plunge and paired up the VZ with a KB100 keyboard. Works superbly so I'm obviously well pleased (especially when you throw KeyQuick into the mix). It's like working on the UX, only with a glorious screen.
2 slight problems, which I'd love to sort out if possible:
1) the arrow keys aren't right. Left is up, and Up ends up being some wacko symbol I've never seen before
