iTech Virtual Keyboard

prokey_lg.jpgThe iTech Virtual Keyboard has been around quite a while now in the UK. This small BlueTooth enabled device can act as a keyboard on any flat surface. The iTech Virtual Keyboard projects an image of a keyboard on to the desk in front of you and uses a sensor located at the base to track where your key presses are and then sends them via BlueTooth over to the Pocket PC or Mobile phone etc… which puts it on the screen.

      I have been using the VKB for my Treo 650 for some time. I recently moved up to the Palm Pre.
      Is this device compatible with the web OS?
