    Hey guys I was wondering if they make an attachable keyboard for the galaxy or any other android tablet. What I'm looking for is something like the iPad keyboards they have. Hence I would need a mini USB one, any ideas?

    Why not go one step further and pick up a bluetooth wireless keyboard?
    There are many on the market now.

    A few years ago I used to use an IR wireless keyboard with my Toshiba e830 pocket PC and it worked great.

    I'm using a rooted nook and as far as i know of there is no blue tooth capability. Unless an app would give me that.

    Nook? (Nokia?) or do you lose bluetooth on the SGS when you root?

    I doubt it, the Nook would have to have USB host capabilities, and AFAIK it doesn't.
